Publisher's Summary

Beware...this book is cursed! These strange but true stories of the world's most infamous items will appeal to true believers as well as history buffs, horror fans, and anyone who loves a good spine-tingling tale.

They're lurking in museums, graveyards, and private homes. Their often tragic and always bizarre stories have inspired countless horror movies, reality TV shows, novels, and campfire tales. They're cursed objects, and all they need to unleash a wave of misfortune is...you.

Many of these unfortunate items have intersected with some of the most notable events and people in history, leaving death and destruction in their wake. But never before have the true stories of these eerie oddities been compiled into a fascinating and chilling volume.

Good information!

Fantastic book. Well written and well read. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered a hardcover copy so I could go back and reference different objects. 10/10 would recommend.

Hokey but not bad

Interesting. I didn’t return it but it’s a little amateurish and goofy with obvious humor, etc.

Wonderful overview of interesting stories

This is exactly what I was looking for. The items selected are interesting and are explored in an open-minded yet still critical way. I highly recommend this book.

More funny then scary

I'm a huge fan of macabe, tabu, and general odd/spookiness. This book had all of that but was more humerous by the general nature of the delivery and one-off side comments by the author.

While I was never really scared, I did find it entertaining.

Worth the listen!

Very informative with a comedic, sarcastic flare. Never thought I’d laugh at a book about curses. Loved it!

Great Narration

Interesting subject and the narrator had a calming, intelligent voice. Pronunciation and accents was exact. I really enjoyed this.
