How many have you killed in your beloved wars? And you call ME the “Grim Reaper?” What do you know of me? Nothing! Read on – you may never see me the same way again.
The Letter From Death A startling take on Death, Fear, War and Love… This provocative work casts a bright light on how our unexamined fear of death has been reinforced and manipulated throughout history, resulting in the misdirection of our energies – away from the real and immediate challenges of this world and towards unnecessary war, injustice and self-destruction. Death’s philosophical letter, addressed to the whole of humanity, is as poignant as it is polemical. Moats’ latest work will challenge even the most open-minded readers to re-examine the basis of their beliefs about death, life and “human nature”.

“Moats uses death not as a threat, but as a prism through which to examine the most profound questions that confront the human race today.” ~ from the foreword by Howard Zinn
