Product description

Review

'A single handsome hardback edition – one of the finest multi-author collections in a long time' The Sunday Herald.

'What treats you have in store! All these stories show their authors to be masters of their craft' Ian Rankin.

'A treasure chest of bloodthirsty bibliophilia ... a delightful, ingenious, specially commissioned anthology, both hair-raising and playful, packed with baffling plots, unlikely characters, literary references and bookish conundrums' The Good Book Guide.

'We tend to imagine book loves, librarians and bibliophiles of all stripes as quiet, gentle folk. In Death Sentences, however, book lovers are bludgeoned to death by their precious tomes, crushed by falling bookshelves, shoved down library stairs, or blown to death by a bomb smuggled into their private library. Some of the authors play the concept for wry comedy. Others take a more serious approach' Irish Examiner.

About the Author

Otto Penzler is the proprietor of The Mysterious Bookshop in New York City and an Edgar-award winning anthologist. Ian Rankin is the bestselling author of the Rebus series.
