There’s a genial review of my book ‘Zombies From History’ on The Spooky Isles site. “Holder’s humour and writing style is very engaging,” apparently. The book serves as “an excellent and entertaining introduction to famous
historical figures” as “he hammers home facts which you may not forget in a hurry.” Oh, and “The illustrations are also rather amusing and really well done.”
And the reviewer, a former sociology student, appreciated the joke about a resurrected Karl Marx leading the
Living Dead faction of the anti-capitalism movement with the slogan “Zombies of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your brains”.
The full review is here. And ‘Zombies from History: A Hunter’s Guide’, the definitive work on what do do when the
historic dead return during the zombie apocalypse, can be purchased on that there Amazon for ready money here.
The estimable Tom Ruffles of the Society for Psychical Research has just posted a fine review of Poltergeist over Scotlandon the SPR’s website. You can find it here or in the reviewssection of this very website. Here’s a taste:
“It seems odd that nobody had thought of the idea before, but surprisingly Geoff Holder is the first person to compile a history of Scottish poltergeists…. This is an excellent package relevant to anybody interested in poltergeists, not only those which occurred in Scotland. Holder employs his trademark humour and takes an open-minded, sympathetic, but critical view of the phenomena he describes, making this a useful, and long overdue, collection.
My thanks to Tom and the SPR for permission to reproduce the review.
