"The novel’s plot makes "Twin Peaks" look straightforward: Expect ghosts, aliens, detectives and leaps in space and time. The images are very Stephen King meets heavy metal. But the overall experience is oddly hypnotic. Everybody agrees that DeadBooks is ahead of its time—maybe even a glimpse at the future of a struggling print culture." —Seven Days, Margot Harrison

"... I admit I had some pretty strong eerie moments that caused chills to run up my back, something I wouldn’t otherwise feel if the story was a simple novel."
Harry Markov, Temple Library Reviews

“Wuerslin may be a pioneer in creating a novel experience… Read The DeadBooks and decide for yourself. As for me, I highly recommend it.”

“... the end product is strangely hypnotic and a bit creepy. It's certainly something unique and innovative.”
Mark's Horror & Suspense Blog (

"Hasso has been influenced by guys like Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft… Hasso’s novel is on a (PC/Mac) DVD, acted out like an elaborate audio book or radio play, with a visual element of still photos, accompanied by the music of 40 bands from around the world and acted out by over 30 actors… is played out in a 10 hour serialization. And that’s just the first part of the series!"Cinema Suicide

Watched a Good Book Lately?
Mark H. Harris - Monday August 25, 2008 - Excerped

"I came across an interesting site last week: It calls itself a "hyper-serialization," and I can't think of a better term for it. Basically, it's the Internet version of a book on tape, involving not only a vocal reading of books (in this case, the Deadbooks series by Hasso Wuerslin), but also sound effects, music, interactive elements and visuals that are like a living scrapbook—not quite moving video, not quite static photos, but a hybrid.

Wuerslin has dedicated eight years of his life to animating the chapters, utilizing over 30 actors and 40 musical groups from around the world. The story itself seems to be a horror-sci fi hybrid about a man on a mining ship that discovers a lifeless Earth. As the man explores, he's possessed by a ghost trying to get him to see the last days of its life. . . . the end product is strangely hypnotic and a bit creepy. It's certainly something unique and innovative."
