After Life: True Tales of the Wandering Dead | Indiegogo
YOU ARE DEAD.
Not at this moment, of course, but in the grand scheme of things we are all mortal and our time is fleeting. Death is the ultimate price of life and that is why we feel the urge to make every moment count.
Kiss the girl. Take the risk. Explore the world. Discover the unknown. Earn a fortune. Seek world fame. These are experiences one can only achieve while blood is pumping and breath is being drawn.
Or, so one would assume.
Some individuals have actually accomplished their greatest deeds and participated in their most epic adventures long after their demise.
After Life: True Tales of the Wandering Dead is a thoughtful and well-researched compilation of these very real post -mortem adventures.

Unearth the very real role Body Snatchers and ‘Resurrectionists’ performed in the name of science.
