Get in the Halloween spirit and support a book about dead people.
Zombies are all the rage lately, but it turns out there are some pretty amazing real-life stories about dead bodies that go on to have some wacky antics of their own, and author J. Pednaud wants to write about them. We talked to him about the Kickstarter for his book After Life: True Tales of the Wandering Dead.Read More
We've finally managed to tear ourselves away from the stories at The Human Marvels long enough to write a post about it.
J. Tithonus Pednaud, curator of the site, records in brief the life stories of "those born exceedingly different" who, rather than buckling under social exile, chose to display themselves in an effort to improve their lives.
In Pednaud's own words:
Many of these human marvels found fortune, love, family and fame during their lives due to people like you – the inquisitive and curious. Together, you would gather into a great hall, royal court, tent or storefront to see these extraordinary men and women in all their splendor.
You would not gather just to stare with mouth agape as the common misconception denotes. These exhibitions were instead enlightening and educational experiences filled with questions, answers and personal interactions.
