Dead Weird
Jim Hewitson

6 1/8” x 7 1/4” • 160 pages
ISBN 1845020251 • hardback • $15.00

Death is a pretty serious business – but it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. In Dead Weird, Jim Hewitson, fearless navigator of the muddy backwaters of Scottish history and pilot to the tartan realms of the obscure, is let loose on the ultimate taboo and finds that death can be fun for all the family, a guid day oot or the perfect excuse for a booze up or a fight. Executions, grizzly murders, raising the dead, battlefield carnage, clean-in-between-the-sheets death, traditions of death, proverbs, omens and anthems, premature burials—they’re all here to give us a new perspective on one of life’s great certainties: DEATH!

So let’s not ignore it and pretend it’ll happen to someone else. Let Jim Hewitson’s Dead Weird transport you on a journey that will celebrate life by looking at the weird and wonderful ways we have dealt with death through the ages. After all, it hasn’t always been a po-faced Victorian ritual that is no fun for anyone!
