NEW BOOKS

The newest book by HP Newquist is "This Will Kill You" is here now. Co-written with Rich Maloof and published by St. Martin's Press, "This Will Kill You" is a humorously dark look at the myriad ways in which we go. From unexpected encounters with alligators to getting struck by lightning on the 18th hole of your favorite golf course on to contracting the plague and public executions, there are hundreds of strange and even preferred ways in which we end up meeting our Maker.

"This Will Kill You" goes beyond the curiosity factor and describes exactly what happens to you when these events happen to you. It describes how the body reacts to these events and provides the kind of specifics that would make a medical school professor proud. It also contains unusual facts, bits or trivia, and enough detail to last you a lifetime. However long that might be.
