Drawing on quite a few altered states of recognition I underwent, movies and novels at the undead, psychiatric case reviews and mystical reviews, the e-book offers with some of the definitely doubtful but in addition dubiously sure features of the undeath kingdom, for instance: over-turns that undo the dead's flip to respond to an interpellation; doubles; common unworldly freezings nonetheless, ones that display the occasional worldly immobilization of the dwelling as simply motion-less-ness, i.e., a number of circulation; the implicit indefinite fall of/in the cadaver; the turning of the metaphorical into the literal; and an unreality that usually behaves in a filmic demeanour (e.g., the lapses in hypnosis, schizophrenia, and undeath let enhancing in reality), inducing the undead to ask yourself: "Am I in a film?" whereas my first publication, Distracted, used to be written for the residing, (Vampires) used to be written approximately and in case you are "mortals to death" (the identify of a unique factor I edited for the magazine Discourse). It therefore belongs--somewhat edgily given my reservations concerning the validity of guidebooks for the dead--on a similar shelf because the Bardo Thödol and the Egyptian e-book of the Dead." -- Jalal Toufic
