If the dead could talk, what would they say? According to mediums during the height of Spiritualism, a lot.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, psychics were busy delivering a cornucopia of messages from beyond the veil, including many from some of world's greatest luminaries. Hear all about the afterlife straight from William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, and other spirits living it up in death in this most unusual collection of writing.

Editor Marc Hartzman guides readers through these post-mortem communications across three main sections:

  • Spirit Teachings - What is the afterlife like? What is God like? Do we have to eat? Drink? Where do we live? The answers to these questions, and many more, await the living.
  • Afterlives of the Rich and Famous - How are the world's greatest writers enjoying life on the Other Side? What new works have they had time to author? And what advice did our most beloved presidents have for America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century?
  • Heaven on Mars - Forget Heaven on Earth, according to one medium, Heaven is on Mars. Read all about it in one very thorough description from a spirit living on the Red Planet.
