You Might Want to See a Doctor About That

"Mentioned in whispers for decades; burned in Manchuria; worshipped in Peru; the only book to be listed on the Vatican's Index Librorum Prohibitorum twice, for emphasis; available again at last, in this definitive edition. Welcome to the Lambshead Guide. Disease-mongers, shudder." -- Dr. China Miaville

Dr. Miaville is speaking, of course, about The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric and Discredited Diseases, edited by Jeff VanderMeer and Mark Roberts.

Afraid you might have contracted "Motile Snarcoma," "Extreme Exostosis," or "Bone Leprosy"? You might want to go here and consult with a physician.

Or, if youĂ­re up for a little self diagnosis, you can aquire the guide here.
