What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the counter and under the scanner? Well, this week's offering came from a newsletter.......
Beware of .... Bites of Terror: 10 Frightfully Delicious Tales by Liz Reed and Jimmy Reed.
From Quirk Books:
"Tuck into these darkly funny horror stories served as an utterly unforgettable graphic novel of hand-sculpted dioramas.
The Cake Creeper cordially invites you to a delicious and diabolical feast . . . where he’ll serve you a slice of tasty terror. Enter the world of Bites of Terror, a gleefully macabre anthology of cautionary tales. Meet an ice-cream cone who regrets a wish granted by a sinister salesman, a quarantined strawberry trying to escape a deathly mold outbreak, and a widowed watermelon dying to regrow her husband from a seed. In the tradition of Tales from the Crypt and other classic horror comics, Bites of Terror presents a tasty combination of horror and humor that reflects the human condition."
(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over the counter at the library. But...I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
