Grim, Gross and Grisly

Grim, Gross and Grisly is published today and there will be a competition to win copies.

I'll post a gross, grim or grisly fact each day on twitter (follow @annerooney to see them) and then there will be a contest for the most yukky human fact posted as a comment here or with the tag #grimgrossgrisly on twitter. Not sure how many prizes yet - depends how many I can prise (ho ho) out of the lovely publishers. If you can't wait that long, it's £6.99 from Barrington Stoke (or Amazon, Foyles, Waterstones, of course).


  1. Is this how you know that cockroaches don't vomit but eels do? For which info I was very grateful. And BArrington Stoke are a lovely publisher. Well done and hooray!

  2. Thank you! But no - this one is all about humans. The eel/cockroach vomit research was from an older title, 1001 Horrible Facts (Arcturus, about 2006 or so).
