I'm addicted to all things paranormal. I just can't help myself. When I received an email from Janice asking if I would like to review her book, I was honored! I'm really glad that I agreed because reading Wanted Undead or Alive made for a perfect afternoon. The interviews with some of today's hottest authors were amazing and the illustrations were magnificent. Overall, this is one of my favorite books ever. Go get a copy and then tell me what you think.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A practical primer on how to deal with things that go bump in the night
What is paranormal evil and who are the good fighting against these abominations? Those are the questions that Jonathan Maberry and Janice Gable Bashman analyze in this self help tome that looks at books, movies and TV to provide advice to readers on when to use holy water, silver bullets, or a garlic necklace worn to the school prom. Readers will learn when to join the arson mob chasing a vampire or to run faster than Bolt (the Olympic champ not the Marvel character). With interviews of some of the masters like Marvel's Stan Lee and director John Carpenter, fans learn how to be a superhero or a super runner as the "Root of Good and Evil" is explored. Set up like an encyclopedia, horror fans will learn the evil can track back several millennia before that Stone Age practitioner Lovecraft. This is a fun tongue in cheek reference guide worth reading over several weeks and this work is made stronger with illustrations and pictures that bring out the ancient war of good and evil. Simply put a superhero needs a supervillain (what is Superman without Lex? mild mannered Clark or Ali and Frazier); and you will no longer be afraid of ghosts or need the busters charging an exorbitant fee to rid you of these apparitions as you now can do it yourself.Was this review helpful?
