What happens after death? Do we become spirits? What is the afterlife like?
Human beings have been asking these questions since ancient times and the answers have always led them down the same path: although inexplicable, there is something else out there. And somehow, this another dimension is related to ghosts.
As the origin of popular traditions and terrifying stories, and the tireless object of scientific and paranormal research, ghosts are a reflection of our beliefs, values, and fears. The History of the world, after reading this book, cannot be explained without them.
Bloody Mary, Popopawa, Hanako Sang, La Llorona... are some of the legends revisited through Berta Llonch’s gothic and dark style, and by María Leach’s narrative voice.
