Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Readers will find out what body parts of the departed great and famous are still with us—and, in some cases, what they sold for. They will also 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, 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 win a quiz.
