Fun loving co-authors and first cousins Suzen Fromstein and Mike Nemiroff are known for their tenacity and "never say die" attitudes (except when the Toronto Maple Leafs play). The co-authors have now unveiled their deliciously gruesome little handbook on death and dying they have appropriately called, "The Grin Reaper – A Humorous Look at Death & Dying (with a few jokes thrown in)."

Our subject is death, in its various shapes and complexions, from somberly scary to facetiously funny. Now, before you scream, turn, and run, consider this: where else are you going to gain some insight, some solace, even some laughs, from confronting this one inevitable fact of life?

The Grin Reaper shines a light on hundreds of thrilling topics like yellow fever, recreational cannibalism, answers to cancers, and many other morbid morsels so ghoulishly delightful you'll want to taste them all before they taste you. ''When we can laugh at diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's and AIDS, conditions like sepsis and anorexia, natural disasters and even murder, the concepts are less threatening and easier to contemplate – unless you happen to be one of the victims," Fromstein says.

From the authors' trademark Putrefacts (humorous encapsulations of the ways in which our bodies and our minds break down), to the informative, mildly alarming top-seven lists, Fromstein and Nemiroff's little tongue-in-cheek textbook is a lifesaver thrown from the Titanic of Life for those who still believe that their ship will never sink.

Buyer Beware/Adult Content-Not appropriate for children: "If you hate comedy, are easily offended or think it is unseemly to laugh at death and disease, don't buy the book! But, before you turn and run, consider this. Where else are you going to gain some insight, some solace, even some laughs, from confronting this one inevitable fact of life? From Fromstein & Nemiroff's trademark Putrefacts (humorous encapsulations of the ways in which our bodies and our minds break down), to the informative, mildly alarming top-seven lists, this little tongue-in-cheek textbook is a lifesaver thrown from the Titanic of Life for those who still believe that their ship will never sink." (The Reaper)
