Deadly Doses: A Writer's Guide to Poisons (Howdunit Writing) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Thorough, non-technical, well-organized guide for writers who need to know, for example, what poison will turn the victim yellow. Deals with acute poisoning, as opposed to chronic poisoning; most of the poisons described are lethal immediately or in short periods of time (so medical care cannot be sought).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Never before has such specialized information been so thoroughly compiled and easily accessible to writers! Each book is written by a professional in their respective field, providing the inside details that writers need to weave a credible — and salable — story.

Synopsis:

Describes the symptoms, forms, methods of administration, and reactions of various poisons, and briefly traces the history of poisioning.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 289-293) and index.
