Description

This little book is a repository of intriguing, fascinating, obscure, strange and entertaining facts and trivia about the one certainty in all our lives - death. Within this volume are some horrible, unfortunate and downright ludicrous ends. Find out what body parts of the departed great and famous are still with us (and, in some cases, what they sold for). Learn of odd last requests, burials, epitaphs and death rites from around the world, as well as the strange fates of some cadavers - and a whole host of horrible tales about mummies, vampires, zombies, auto-icons and body-snatchers. Anyone brave enough to read this book will be entertained and enthralled and never short of some frivolous fact to enhance a conversation or quiz! With 50 chilling illustrations, get out of your crypt and buy it whilst you can!show more
