Signed by Author
SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR with a rather unusual and somewhat rude dedication (appropriate given the genre however). Some annotations on a few pages, edgewear and some corners turned, otherwise still a good solid copy - from the publisher:"For over seven years, William Burrill has been baring his soul (and any other damn thing he wants) in his 'Naked Eye' column in Toronto's 'eye Weekly'. It has been a rocky road, seeing the world through Bill's bloodshot eyes. The bumpy night usually starts in the late afternoon in some bar and ends -- well, who can remember? Now in this book, Burrill finally has chance to remember in this collection of very personal rants, ruminations and observations. Burrill's been everywhere, from Las Vegas (where he lost it at the casino) to Mexico (where he was simply lost for a while) and lived to tell at least some of his adventures along the way. Without fear, but often with a fair amount of loathing, he takes on the latest government policies (he has run for mayor of Toronto three times); life as a private Fairy Tale Detective (Humpty didn't fall, he was pushed), and religions both organised (If Jesus played Caesar's Palace) and disorganised (How to be a Zen Stooge-Master). He is staring back at Death (actually it was a killer migraine), followed Hemingway's trail to Cuba, and made thousands of readers laugh (or become really pissed off). Bill Burrill is funny, irreverent, charismatic and insightful. He is also dangerous, not only to himself, but also to those around him. BEWARE."

Hardcover 1st edition - BRAND NEW UNREAD COPY - just a hint of shopwear otherwise pristine. From the publisher:"Author Phil Cousineau is an adventure travel guide and mythographer whose mentor was scholar Joseph Campbell. He has collected riddles from every land, uncovering common threads in what he calls "ingenious questions in search of clever answers." Organized by country, Riddle Me This will educate as it entertains and intrigues readers. Although written with a sense of fun and a love of words, the book has a serious premise at its core -- to rescue riddles from obscurity and return them to their proper status as one of the earliest types of folk wisdom. Suitable fare for scholars or for family fun, Riddle Me This will tickle the funnybone and stimulate the brain."

Mass Market Paperback
As New





Appears NEW AND UNREAD! Just a hint of shopwear otherwise pristine. The PERFECT GIFT for the person who has every book! From the publisher:"The lure of the morbid. The fascination of really bad news. The strange thrill of things going spectacularly wrong. Tragic, sensational, spine-chilling, and addictively entertaining, itís The Darwin Awards meets The Stupidest Things Ever Said. In story after story we meet the star-crossed, the extremely unlucky, and the fatally foolish. Sureóitís grim, sometimes ghastly. But isnít it nice to know that someone, somewhere, had a worse day than you?"
