How do you get a book to go flying off the shelves? You could put a provocative cover on it, or try old-fashioned reverse psychology - warning readers to beware. The books we're about to mention don't need help with marketing. According to cursed owners they literally throw themselves off the shelves. 

Join Adrienne and Leo in Part 1 of Cursed Books as they discuss the creepiest manuscripts in the Western canon.

41: Organism 46-B

June 9th, 2021

Ghouls love cryptids, an animal claimed to exist but never proven. Adrienne and guest, Leo Buckley of San Francisco Bay Area band, Hazzard's Cure objectively debate about a giant squid attributed to have murdered a few Russian scientist upon its discovery. Sticking to the tropes of a really good (or really bad) B movie it can hypnotize, shape shift and shoot deadly venom. Don't forget the part where Putin has designs to use it for military purposes.
