Bruce Free download The Penguin Book of the Undead Fifteen Hundred Years of Supernatural Encounters Testant Reformation to the Renaissance this beguiling array of accounts charts our relationship with spirits and apparitions wraiths and demons over fifteen hundred years showing the evolution in our thinking about the ability of dead souls to return to the realm of the living and to warn us about what awaits us in the afterlife.

OMG if there was ever an award for most deceptive description on the back cover of a book this would win it The book allegedly teems with roving hordes of dead warriors corpses trailed by packs of barking dogs moaning phantoms haunting deserted ruins evil spirits emerging from burning carcasses in the form of crows and zombies with pestilential breath Instead of fun and chilling stories of the undead you get bone dry historical and mostly religious texts spanning from the Dark Ages to the Protestant Reformation regarding apparitions and restless souls most of which are written in a very matter of fact way It s like reading a religious historical textbook Complete waste of 17
