Haitian zombies?

How did Jell get involved in a project about zombies? When we met cardiologist Reynold Ducasse, he was working on a new book, The Haitian Zombie Secret, a novel with a healthy dose of nonfiction. The book explores Haiti’s fixation with zombification. Delving into a bit of cultural psychoanalysis, Ducasse sheds some much-needed light on the undying myths and their origins. With his scientific perspective and research, the author hopes to set future generations free from the superstitions that have kept Haiti mired in fear and injustice.

Ducasse’s book is now available through Amazon, Abebooks, and Alibris. Jell created the companion Web site — an author’s blog — that offers interesting news, articles, and links on the subject.
