Editorial Reviews

Review

"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"— About.com

"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."— SirReadaLot.org

"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

Format: Paperback
I've read many of Brad Steiger's works and have always been impressed with his ongoing range of categories, and perhaps one of the best examples of this is the latest book "Real Zombies, the living dead, and creatures of the apocalypse". An anthology between real accounts of peoples experiences, and well researched history, this tome shouldn't be overlooked. I personally found it to be a rare blend of well researched, entertaining and of a high quality publication both in design and lay out. With some 170 titles to his credit he never ceases to amaze me with his ability to find new content to explore as well as to expand on prior topics as new technologies and wisdoms come about.

Most of his works I have found informative, this is one of the few that not only did I find insightful, but downright Creepy! One story within hit close to home, lets just say I won't be partying in any hot tubs any time soon! I hope everyone gets out of this collection as much as I did. Well done Mr. Steiger, well done indeed.

I thought the book was interesting, entertaining and fun. I now know things I did not know on subjects that I had little or no knowledge about.I find all of Brads books worth reading for just those reasons. There is so much in this world we do not understand that finding material to form some type of knowledge base from is very difficult yet important to do. I for one do not plan to spend my entire life in the dark about all the subjects we think of as paranormal . This book like all of Steigers books allow me to figure out what may or may not be going on out there in the unknown. I loved the book and think you will too.

Format: Paperback
Don't buy this book if you are just looking for a scary story that reads like a novel, that isn't what it is. However, it is still worth a read. The book covers a wide expanse of weird and spooky tales and legends from around the world. A great book to give you food for thought and direction to go looking deeper if you like any of the topics covered. Only gave 4 stars since it lacks some consistancy in the depth in which it covers the different topics (some things get pages and pages while others are only mentioned in passing). Only truely scary if you believe what the people who recall the first hand accounts say, but does give you some leads to follow up with to attempt to establish credibility of the contributors. Worth reading by anyone who has spent any time in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

Format: Paperback
The zombie has captivated the American imagination, but where is the basis in reality? "Real Zombies: The Living Dead, and Creatures of the Apocalypse" journeys through history into accounts of real zombies. Witchcraft, voodoo, necromancy have all been practiced in someway around the world, and Brad Steiger argues that there may be more to it than many think. From relation to vampires and mummies, to the zombie army of Hitler, many out there theories and ideas are presented, making "Real Zombies" a truly fascinating read.
