Editorial Reviews

Review

It turns out that it wasn t only the musicians who were inspired by the phenomenon of the Grateful Dead. In this incredible pile of stories are flesh-eating zombie Jerrys, the brilliantly resurrected ghost of Neal Cassady, skeletons, drugs, life on tour, initiations, archetypal Grateful Dead folk tales, the supernatural, the science-fictional, time travel and magic, lots of magic. Not to be missed. --Dennis McNally, author of A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead

I'll advise you to engage this anthology the same way you engage Grateful Dead music: open your mind, expect the unexpected, and prepare to be both entertained and enlightened. --David Gans, author, musician, producer: The Grateful Dead Hour

You can't imagine how many ways the Dead have become the Undead unless you read this book. --John Shelton Lawrence, The Myth of the American Superhero

Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the most uncommon, original books I have stumbled upon. It's a series of different tales all relating to the Grateful Dead or share a common correlation. But this was more to me than that, I found myself taking each of the story's in one by one, forcing myself to not read it in one sitting but to enjoy each tale fully. This book brought upon all kinds of emotions for me, sadness, guilt, amazement, love, fear, excitement, and alot of tears. Not bad tears, but the type that fill up in your eyes when you hear that Dead song that gives you goosebumps. Not everyone who may stumble upon this review may understand but those that do, do, & those that don't,don't. Fare Thee Well......

I am not a Grateful Dead fan, but I found a little of everything in the book. There are a couple SciFi stories that were quite good. Another even deals with post-apocalyptic zombies. Overall a good read.
