    Told like a creepy-anecdote style ghost story.

    Unless you're in to cult fiction, Seabrook is a little known author of the early 20th century. Apparently he was into esoteric travel, voodooism, the occult, cannibalism, and ultimately aligned himself with Satanism. An all around fun guy and someone you could take home to mom, I'm sure. Regardless of his dinner tastes, Seabrook is one of the earliest to describe the Haitian zombie, which he does in this short tale set in the 1920's.

Apparently he was into esoteric travel, voodooism, the occult, cannibalism, and ultimately aligned himself with Satanism. An all around fun guy and someone you could take home to mom, I'm sure. Regardless of his dinner tastes, Seabrook is one of the earliest to describe the Haitian zombie, which he does in this short tale set in the 1920's. In it, the author is speaking a Haitian acquaintance, Polynice, who discusses with him local tales of the walking dead, or zombies, who are basically used as unpaid manual labor in the can fields. Mindless automatons, they can work all day, require no sustenance or pay, and are locally sourced, apparently. The only issue happens to be if the relatives of the dead person happen to notice that you are using their dearly departed as slave labor. Then things can get ugly. There's also included a second tale of a young, light skinned woman who is married to a much older, darker Haitian who lives in a villa in the mountains, his riches made of the coffee trade. Apparently, the husband's got a few side projects to go along with the java. Both stories are very interesting. Apparently Seabrook wrote this as non-fiction. I certainly hope not!
