Chameleon Publishing Inc.
Imagine a dark night, a lonely road, an overgrown cemetery
I am not a writer, but I am a consummate reader of the ghostly genre. When I picked up Cemetery Sonata on a whim for the weekend, little did I realize that I would not stop until the last terror unfolded.This book is so unlike any other on the market today: no erotica, no skulking vampires - actually, no blood at all unless you consider the rise in your blood pressure as you read of the ...
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud...... is amazing.
This book was an amazing story of loss and friendship. Ben Sherwood did an excelent job at writing this novel. Wish the were more books like this one and "The Lovely Bones" written by: Alice Sebold which is another one i would highly recommend. He does a good job of capturing the world of the sprits and our world at the same time. Would love to see more of Ben Sherwood's writing hopefully more is ...

THE COMPLETE GETTYSBURG GUIDE: Walking and Driving Tours of the Battlefield, Town, Cemeteries, Field Hospital ...
J. David Petruzzi
Instead of five stars, how about five "wows." This book is the masterpiece that the Gettysburg battlefield always deserved. It's the book that the American public has always deserved, and it's the book that the fallen on both sides deserved. That it has taken 145 years to become available is no coincidence. The amount of detail and the painstaking accuracy reflect the cumulative scholarship ...
Stairway to Heaven: The Final Resting Places of Rock's Legends
J. D. Reed
A masterpiece....for any music fan.
Have you ever gone to see your favorite artist in concert only to go home somewhat upset because they didn't play this song or that song? Well,I thought I would be thinking that way when I purchased this book,thinking that it would not have the gravesite(s) of this artist or that artist or so on. WAS I WRONG!!! This is like a who's who of dead people of the music world. The book in no way caters ...
Where Valor Rests: Arlington National Cemetery
I sent this to my dad, a Korean war vet, for his birthday. He really liked it.
The Cemetery Fence
One in a million
Anyone who enjoys Suspense, supernatural, the unknown, romance and pure excitement will call this story one in a million. Very, very, very well put together. I enjoyed it Immensely.
A Graveyard Preservation Primer (American Association for State and Local History Book Series)
From Cleaning a Single Headstone to Renovating a Historic Graveyard
If you've ever had a question about preserving a single headstones or need a complete primer to fully restore a historic graveyard, this book tells how. I admit I was unaware the "Association For Gravestone Studies" existed before reading this book, but the AGS has compliled a wealth of information and photos here. The book is concise, less than 200 pages, but proof a book doesn't need be thick ...
Grave Matters: A Journey Through the Modern Funeral Industry to a Natural Way of Burial
Wonderful and no nonsense
I had actually thought about entering the field of mortuary science. This book was a major eye opener for me. I was always familiar with funeral practice since I was a teenager. I didn't take the bait!!! I think the whole notion of green burial is where the funeral industry will head sooner or later. I've since found out there is a very old cemetery located in Asheville N.C. that has come on ...
Good-Bye My Friend: Pet Cemeteries, Memorials, and Other Ways to Remember
a beautiful and artistic homage to pets!
This books not only celebrates the beauty found in pet cemetaries, but the beauty found in the human/animal bond. Michele illustrates through her magnificent photos how deep and eternal the love can be for the animals in people's lives. The stories told are endearing, encouraging the reader to reflect on his own fond memories of the pets in his life. "Goodbye, My Friend" is a gracious ...
Prayer for the Morning Headlines: On the Sanctity of Life and Death
Poignant and Powerful
This marvelous book is poignant and powerful. It captures and expresses the spirit and the soul of the enduring human struggle to build a more peaceful world. In an era of cynicism and fear, this book is badly needed. Charles F. Dambach President, Alliance for Peacebuilding
Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery: New York's Buried Treasure
Jeffrey I. Richman
Green Wood Cemetery
A great capsule of New York City history!
I found this book to be an interesting chronology of the individuals who, at some point in time, were the bedrock (sorry about that) of New York's high society as well as its underworld (well, maybe I'm not so sorry). In addition to its well prepared text, the book is a wealth of contemporary photographs and a rich collection of historically significant pictures and illustrations. A major ...
Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance
Cemetery Dance Publications, 2008
The Dark Tower series is as long and complicated as the Bible. The Bible has a concordance. This needs one too. There are so many characters and so many meandering sub-plots that you need a road map to keep everything on track. Robin Furth did it for us. Furth is dedicated to this series and seems to know every nuance. THis book helps. And it makes a good campfire game to open the book ...
The Eyes of the Carp (Novella Series)
T. M. Wright
Cemetery Dance Publications, 2005
Kevin, the deliciously unreliable narrator of T.M. Wright's "The Eyes of the Carp," loves his wife, works with his hands, enjoys entertaining friends, keeps a dish full of bright, foil-covered Easter egg chocolates to offer his guests, and occasionally explores the inside of his wife's mouth with the aid of a flashlight as she sleeps at night. Kevin is witty, smart, hungry for knowledge, ...
Seek the Living: A Novel
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Not Just Popular Fiction...
As I read Warlick's "Seek the Living," I was reminded of Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" and the ways in which Faulkner's characters reveal complexities that reach beyond the telling of a good tale to ring out the potential recklessness and restlessness within us all. The universality of Warlick's work; how she creates moments of vast poignancy; how she captures the tensions of self/family/place; how ...
Green-Wood Cemetery (Images of America: New York)
Alexandra Kathryn Mosca
A wonderful trip through Green-Wood!
This was such a fascinating read! A funeral director myself, I have always been interested in the history of cemeteries and the people residing within. Ms. Mosca's photo selections and insightful captions make this a great read! She is a wonderfully talented writer and I look forward to more from her!
Beautiful Death: The Art of the Cemetery (Penguin Studio Books)
The Sound of the Cemetary
To appreciate this is book of art you have to be able to look past all preconceived ideas of cemetaries and dying and look further into a higher realm of spirituality. The monuments featured in this book speak of something other than death - they speak of the person that lives on and the people that are left behind to remember them. Looking through the pages I felt a connection to another world ...
William K. Greiner
Louisiana State University Press
Small Models of the Barren Earth
To capture the ironies, poignancies, and soulful idiosyncrasies of the grave sites pictured in this book, William Greiner spent several years traversing the cemeteries of New Orleans and South Louisiana....Despite Greiner's obvious debt to William Eggleston, who is often cited as the father of modern color photography, his photographs stand out as originals. The compositions are provocative, ...
New Orleans Cemeteries: Life in the Cities of the Dead
I would never have went to New Orleans without visiting at least one of the famous above ground cemeteries - I was not disappointed! The history behind them is fascinating. They're built above ground, so that when there is any kind of flooding, the bodies don't float away since New Orleans is 700?ft below sea level. What was really neat to me though, is that one tomb, could and would be used ...
Soul in the Stone: Cemetery Art from America's Heartland
John Gary Brown
University Press of Kansas
A Portfolio of Work Worth a Second Look
John Gary Brown, does an excellent job at showing the eccentricity and beauty of grave markers. He uses different angles, and points of view in his compositions, to bring out a morbid beauty, that is rarely seen by the naked eye. A truly impressive collection of masterpieces. Just when you think the works speak for themselves, Brown also includes wonderful poetry, which co-exists perfectly ...
