This collection of strange tales centers on the concept of death, dying, and the afterlife. These stories are not meant to be scary, in the traditional sense, but rather disturbing and even thought provoking. Many of these are written by easily recognizable authors, such as Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, and Rudyard Kipling, and others are by more obscure writers from the same era.
Also included in this volume are ten original pictures from the Cemetery Photography gallery of Osie Turner. They all appear beautifully on both color and grayscale readers.
