Deadly Doses: A Writer's Guide to Poisons (Howdunit Writing)by Serita Debo Stevens
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)
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.
Describes the symptoms, forms, methods of administration, and reactions of various poisons, and briefly traces the history of poisioning.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 289-293) and index.
