Grave Goods PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Grave Goods free pdf Just because this is a collection of essays about psychics, murderers, strange disappearances, and occult phenomena doesn't mean it isn't funny. With wit, wry curiosity, and redemptive irony John P. O'Grady peels back the surface of the seemingly normal to reveal the dubious, the inexplicable, and the outlandish. Grave Goods includes ghost stories, macabre modern legends, and metaphysical investigations, all informed by the natural sciences, history, philosophy, literature, and mythology. From laugh-out-loud funny to eerily thoughtful, these essays reveal the natural world as a place of unnatural surprises and strange beauty. A place where Rip Van Winkle, O'Grady's college buddies, and ragtag psychics rub shoulders with Buddha, Socrates, and Stephen King--and it all makes perfect sense.
