Portable Press 

Death comes in many forms—sometimes peaceful, sometimes tragic, sometimes dramatic . . . and at other times just plain weird. In History’s Weirdest Deaths, you’ll read the true stories of more than a hundred people who met their end in a bizarre fashion. Each cautionary tale is unique. Meet the victims of stunts that went horribly wrong, ordinary people who made boneheaded blunders, and famous figures who realized too late that celebrity isn’t a cure for stupidity. 

For grown-up readers, Portable Press offers two quirky, and engaging books about Hollywood and death. Strange Hollywood is a humorous and entertaining look at all things Hollywood: its people, its legends, its myths, and all the juicy, torrid details about them all. And History’s Weirdest Deaths is a darkly funny look at some of history’s oddest, dumbest, most unforgettable deaths.
