I loved this little book--it's chock full of the shortest of short stories by everyone from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Joe Lansdale and John Lennon. Interspersed through out are these great little true facts about cannibals and odd suicide/murder attempts as well as amazing illustrations from Edward Gorey, Gahan Wilson and Aubrey Beardsley. A bit hard to find but well worth the read.
