Trailer: The Resurrectionist

So many of you were interested in this book when I showed it in my TBR vlog for May, so since the trailer was released recently, I thought I'd share it with you.
Check it out:


The art! The atmosphere! Who else is intrigued?
But seriously, if you see this book in a shop or your library, pick it up and flip through. I defy you not to want to take it home with you...

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Resurrectionist by EB Hudspeth
Get It | Add It
208 pages
Expected publication: May 21st 2013 by Quirk Books
Philadelphia, the late 1870s. A city of gas lamps, cobblestone streets, and horse-drawn carriages—and home to the controversial surgeon Dr. Spencer Black. The son of a grave robber, young Dr. Black studies at Philadelphia’s esteemed Academy of Medicine, where he develops an unconventional hypothesis: What if the world’s most celebrated mythological beasts—mermaids, minotaurs, and satyrs—were in fact the evolutionary ancestors of humankind?

The Resurrectionist offers two extraordinary books in one. The first is a fictional biography of Dr. Spencer Black, from a childhood spent exhuming corpses through his medical training, his travels with carnivals, and the mysterious disappearance at the end of his life. The second book is Black’s magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia, a Gray’s Anatomy for mythological beasts—dragons, centaurs, Pegasus, Cerberus—all rendered in meticulously detailed anatomical illustrations. You need only look at these images to realize they are the work of a madman. The Resurrectionist tells his story
