Horrible Annuals Pair

For the strong-of-stomach only – a double dose of putrid peril, bubbling with nasty bits to make you groan with glee! Steer well clear unless you can handle a whole year of grim, gruesome, fantastically foul facts! Horrible human sacrifices. Rotten royal habits. Brutal bear-baiting and vile Victorian mills. The ocean’s ugliest fish, most poisonous insects, most distressing diseases, and hottest and coldest extremes. You ought to need a licence to learn about so very many terrible things – but which will be the nastiest of all? Only you can decide!
