5.0 out of 5 stars Different and exciting reading experience based on intriguing idea, 8 Dec. 2013
"This Is How You Die" edited by Matthew Bennardo , David Malki and Ryan North is a collection of stories and comics about a world where machine with 100% certainty is able to predict how someone will die. It will need just a little drop of your blood and you will get paper with "Old Age" or "Cancer" written on it without any further details, most importantly when.

This is sequel of very successful "Machine of Death" anthology where the concept of the predicting machine was introduced. But this collection is even better than the last one, because all the writers interpret the idea differently making their worlds around this central idea but with more creativity and few surprises.

The stories are really diverse; some have literary style although for few you will not be sure how to categorize them - in one or more specific genre - as mystery, humor, romance, philosophy, SF... Also main characters are music stars, school kids, police officers, French aristocrats, even aliens.

Beside unusual and very interesting idea, this book is richly illustrated by some of the most famous names in comic world, Aaron Diaz, Braden Lamb. Lexxy Douglass, Carla Speed McNeil to name a few. As bonus, the book also contains exclusive comics made by Kris Straub, Ryan Pequin, Anthony Clark and KC Green. Those familiar with comics will recognize their names.

In the end it's interesting asking ourselves question if a machine could predict how we would die, would we really want to know?

If you want some different reading experience based on intriguing idea, be sure to read "This Is How You Die", you'll enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is massive!, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death (Paperback)
Machine of death was a fantastic read, but I am staggered by just how much more they have crammed into this book! I really can not wait to dive in and enjoy it.

Mr North, Mr Bennardo and Mr Malki thankyou for another great publication!
