Dying, grief, and the afterlife

Home > Books and Resources > Animal-related death, grief, and the afterlife books

These books typically deal with topics related to coping with and grieving the passing of a beloved non-human family member. They frequently include extracts of conversations with animals who have passed over.

The following list shows all of the animal-related death, grieving, and afterlife books that I know about. Books with This book is available from Amazon's Kindle book store, This book is available from Barnes and Noble's Nook book store, or This book is available from the Kobo book store icons after their titles are available for purchase in digital form from those e-book providers — clicking those links will take you to the relevant catalog pages on those sites. Eventually each of the book titles will link to a separate page that will offer basic information about the book in question, including publishing details and where you can buy it. Books that have a little red star I have this book in front of them are books I own and their pages will include my personal reviews in addition to the standard basic information. It’s an ongoing project — book pages will be linked here as they are created.

Authors are listed alphabetically by their surnames; the books are listed under each author chronologically by publication date. [List of books last updated April 22, 2015]
