Editorial Reviews

Every paranormal researcher, I'm sure, envies the files that Brad Steiger must have that allow him to be so prolific in delivering these amazing volumes of esoteric information. This book was an eye-opener for me. Top Paranormal Books of 2010"- "Not recommended for reading just before bedtime."- Alternate Perceptions magazine" Real Zombies is a superb, and arguably definitive, look at the zombie phenomenon... . The subject is infinitely more complex than many realize. Like a zombie itself, Brad's book grabs you by the jugular and doesn't let go!"- FATE magazine" Real Zombies, The Living Dead And Creatures Of The Apocalypse . Brilliant!"- Huffington Post "... refuses to be limited by Shaun of the Dead-style zombie convention. Steiger is known for his encyclopedic exploration of ghosts, vampires and werewolves, and he lends the same exacting scrutiny to this look at reanimated corpses - and more."- Linda Godfrey's Bloghouse "The title of the book screams out as something I would want to pick up and it details information about zombies, wendigos, and a lot of other supernatural critters. Also the book's author Brad Steiger obviously took great pains to research."- Pandora's Gate " The stories in Real Zombies, the Living Dead, and Creatures of the Apocalypse are fascinating and chilling, bloodcurdling even. This comprehensive and unsettling study is an antidote to Hollywood films with their lurching, reanimated dead."- "The award-winning writer of more than 100 tomes about ghosts, werewolves and other night stalkers, lays to rest the misconceptions regarding the walking dead. He then goes on to tell more than 30 bone-chilling tales."- Sun magazine "
