MEDIA REVIEWS

"Saying that, what is covered should be enough here for the 'Supernatural' fan to think about. Don't get spooked." (SFCrowsnest.org.uk, 1 December 2013)

"All in all, through reading this book, I realized philosophical and religious examinations are a lot more fun when they're done side by side with the adventures of Sam and Dean Winchester rather than traditional sources. The correlations make for a very good read. It will certainly change the way we fans see episodes both past and future. Thanks to pop culture, philosophy just isn't for scholars anymore." (The Winchester Family Business, 22 October 2013)
