Back cover copy

Revelling in revolting fact, positively dripping with deadly deeds, first there was A Macabre Miscellany; now, with a further dose of spine chilling, stomach turning grotesquery, there is More Macabre Miscellany. A foul mix of modern murder and ancient atrocity, More Macabre Miscellany is the blood and guts of world history spattered with the most monstrous of contemporary carnage. JUST FOR TASTERS: * In 2003, a Bangladeshi woman was killed and swallowed headfirst up to her waist by a 10ft python as she collected fruit. * St Valentine is regarded as the patron saint of lovers, he is also the patron saint of people suffering from other, even more devastating afflictions: those of epilepsy and the plague. * Romanian Prince Vlad the Impaler (1431 -1476) not only cannabalised the flesh of his enemies, but rather than waste the blood he spread it on bread and ate it.show more
