Have you ever wondered what you would do if you suddenly needed to perform an exorcism? Had to survive viewing a cursed Japanese videotape? How you would adjust to BEING a werewolf? How to reanimate a mummy or know the signs that your house may be haunted? Well, worry no more for the book that will guide you in surviving all things paranormal has been written.
Authors David Borgenicht (creator and co-author of the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series as well as the publisher of the best-selling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) and Ben Winters (author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Android Karenina as well as several Worst-Case Scenario Pocket Guides) have come together to save us all from things we would rather not think about.
Traveling to the Bahamas this summer? There is a chapter on how to survive the Bermuda Triangle. Are you a farmer and corn is your crop? Better bone up on how to survive if there are Children in your Corn. The Paranormal handbook has tips on everything from alien abductions to vampires, zombies, choosing familiars, brewing magic potions to building fairy traps and surviving with scissor hands. Tongues firmly in cheeks, the authors make their survival handbook both hilariously funny and “dead serious” (pun intended), and no horror fan should be without a copy. You just never know when you might have to clean a wall dripping with blood (SO annoying!) or host a cocktail party when your house is haunted.
There are also some fascinating little tidbits on how to conduct a séance, the actual rite of exorcism, the names of various demons throughout the world, how much blood is in various mammals and what it tastes like, vampires of the world along with their appearance and special qualities, the identification of paranormal beings and much more.
So, before summer kicks in too much, grab a copy of The Worst-Case Survival Handbook: Paranormal and save yourself from a lot of potential headaches. Plus, you’ll have the book when autumn and Halloween come a-calling and everything REALLY hits the fan. Funny, fascinating and possibly a life saver, look for The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Paranormal at your local bookstore or on Amazon.com.
