After Life: True Tales of the Restless Dead unearths and presents fantastic postmortem adventures undertaken by various cadavers, and also chronicles numerous misfortunes that have befallen the dead.

Did you know that eating powdered human remains was once considered medicinal?

Did you know that Einstein's brain took a cross country road trip in the trunk of a Buick?

Did you know there have been human remains on the moon since 1999?

Death means the end of life, but it is not the end of adventure. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Death opens up a whole new world of crazy escapades and extreme exploits - all encountered without the worry of death or injury.

From the beginnings of the “death trade” - digging into the profits made from mummy commerce, and the use of body parts for medicine (which continues to this day) - to accounts of posthumous executions, as well as sordid stories of crazed collectors, and even cases of celebrity cadavers stolen and held for ransom, After Life: True Tales of the Restless Dead uncovers all of these true tales, and more.

Author J. Pednaud’s After Life: True Tales of the Restless Dead is filled with oddly riveting accounts of unusual posthumous episodes, as well as earnest observations on mankind’s fascination with death. Pednaud somehow presents the world of the dead with both facts and humour strong enough to keep us turning the page, even if we find ourselves doing it with our hands over our eyes.

Why can’t the living let the dead rest in peace?
