A morbidly grotesque tour through medical history. It's not difficult to ken where zombie lore comes from after peeping some of these horrifying specimens. Beyond that, the illustrations are beautiful, even if the subject is gruesome.

Flapping jowls! Flying hair! Contorted faces! Swirling drool!
Shaking dogs look like aliens. Or like someone forgot where all their
parts went. The dog photos range from the ludicrous (Dax) to the
glamorous (Zorro) with all sorts of fun in between.

The never-before-told story of the white women of the Harlem Renaissance. Derided and sensationalized, the history of the collective "Miss Anne"

This steampunk novel is an awesome foray into steamy Victorian London.
When society girls start being killed, clues point to an ancient Egyptian cult. There is
only one duo who can crack the case...the sister of Bram Stoker and the niece of Sherlock Holmes! Told you
it was awesome.
