Letters from the Afterlife
is a hopeful, inspiring after-death communication received by a woman almost a century ago. In the early part of the twentieth century, a woman began a process of "automatic writing" — as though she were an instrument for someone else's words. Days later she discovered that the "writer" — identified as attorney and author David Patterson Hatch — died thousands of miles away, and he was telling his story of life after death through her. The resulting book, originally published as Letters from a Living Dead Man
in 1914, gained widespread popularity and was hailed for helping remove the fear of dying. An eyewitness account of the afterlife, told while the storyteller was there, the book describes life after death in minute detail, including the consequences of suicide, how loved ones find each other, and the relationship with higher beings.
