About the Book:

These days you can-t swing an undead lycanthrope without hitting a Minion of Evil. They-re everywhere-TV, film, the basement-right behind you! It-s never been more important to know what you can do to keep them at bay. Garlic? silver bullets? holy water? torch-wielding mob?

From today-s foremost experts on nightmares-come-to-life, this indispensible guide identifies and describes mankind-s enemies-supernatural beasts, ghosts, vampires, serial killers, etc.-and unearths effective time-proven responses to each horrific threat.

Separate fact from fiction, the deadly from the merely creepy. Learn when to stand your ground and when to run screaming for your life. Determine which monster-specific heroes to call and their likelihood of success. Consider your own potential as a Champion for Good, Conqueror of the Damned.

Whether we-re talking ancient vampire hunters or modern-day FBI profilers, it-s good to know someone-s got your back in the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. And this book, with over fifty illustrations, as well as commentary from luminaries like filmmaker John Carpenter, author Peter Straub, and the legendary Stan Lee, provides all the information and reassurance you need to sleep soundly at night. 

My Review: 
Wanted Undead or Alive was hilarious and so much fun- definitely taught me some great facts about the supernatural! This would be a brilliant piece for any horror or supernatural author to keep on hand... if anything just for the amazing ideas.

I must say that I favored the part where the authors get into describing how to bury those you don't want coming back after you... if all else fails, bury them with their shoes on the wrong feet so that when they rise, they're confused and fall. Totally gave me the giggles.This is like a textbook on kicking evil's ass- complete with pictures. They cover every angle of evil and the heroes that conquer it.

The only thing that disappointed me about this book was that the evolution of our modern monsters was only lightly touched upon, I had dove into this book anticipating something more of that sort. Regardless, I loved this book and highly recommend it.
