A gleefully gruesome look at the actual science behind the most outlandish, cartoonish, and impossible deaths you can imagine What would happen if you took a swim outside a deep-sea submarine wearing only a swimsuit? How long could you last if you stood on the surface of the sun? How far could you actually get in digging a hole to China? Paul Doherty, senior staff scientist at San Francisco’s famed Exploratorium Museum, and writer Cody Cassidy explore the real science behind these and other fantastical scenarios, offering insights into physics, astronomy, anatomy, and more along the way. Is slipping on a banana peel really as hazardous to your health as the cartoons imply? Answer: Yes. Banana peels ooze a gel that turns out to be extremely slippery. Your foot and body weight provide the pressure. The gel provides the humor (and resulting head trauma). Can you die by shaking someone’s hand? Answer: Yes. That’s because, due to atomic repulsion, you’ve never actually touched another person’s hand. If you could, the results would be as disastrous as a medium-sized hydrogen bomb. If you were Cookie Monster, just how many cookies could you actually eat in one sitting? Answer: Most stomachs can hold up to sixty cookies, or around four liters. If you eat or drink more than that, you’re approaching the point at which the cookies would break through the lesser curvature of your stomach, and then you’d better call an ambulance to Sesame Street.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead by Patricia Eimer Not Even Death Can Keep a Good Demoness Down There's never an end to the crazy when you're demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt's complaining. She's been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit, one soul at a time. Life is good. Or at least it is until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she's taking lives instead of saving them. This is kind of a problem when you're a nurse. As if that weren't bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all–Matt's ex is back, and she's brought the Apocalypse with her. Faith's not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what's a girl to do but take matters in her own hands, consequences be damned?

In Repeat This and You’re Dead, celebrated dramatist Lawrence Russell ventures for the first time into fiction. With gritty and unforgiving realism, these "short short stories" cast a harsh eye on the Ireland of the last half of this century, a country brutally divided while fiercely loyal to an ambiguous past and an even more turbulent future. With Russell’s characteristic black humour and gleeful sarcasm, the characters act out their fated lives on the public stage, stories narrated as repeated gossip, told with the casual nonchalance of a wanderer passing from room to room at a party to which he has not been invited. Russell’s unflinching mastery of irony refuses to allow his voice to slip into sentimentality or charitable fondness. These are the stories of untamed bullies, hapless farmers, unsteady veterans, greedy nephews, stuffy uncles, grubby urchins, haunted scavengers, ruthless money grubbers, clumsy terrorists, disenchanted lovers, desperate mothers, estranged sons and exiled eccentrics of every stripe–tales of the outcast and outraged. Russell’s style recalls the influences of Irish forefathers–the precision of Joyce, the absurdity of Beckett, and the mysticism of Yeats. Russell’s Ireland is not only fist fights and fanaticism, it is also the unimagined peace which occasionally resides in the hearts of the hopeful.

Who Wants Flowers When You're Dead? is the memoir of a woman who questions her choices while searching for meaning and purpose in her life. Kathleen Walker used to place flowers on her parents' graves. One day she realizes that practicing kindness in her life might be a better tribute to her parents than placing a bouquet on their headstones.

She eventually finds happiness in her roles as wife, mother, and teacher, but she still feels as though there's something missing. During her husband's four cancer surgeries, she draws on her faith, but at times, she questions the existence of God and feels disappointed in her support system. It is during this traumatic time that Kathleen has an epiphany-that life is really about making a choice to do what's important now. Through this truth, she begins to heal. Kathleen's determination to find ways that will make a difference today in her life, as well as the lives of others, is an inspiration to anyone.
