The Complete and Totally True Book of Urban Legends
Most of us have repeated them. Some of us have believed them. But none of us has actually played a part in them . . . have we?

What's that in your food!? What's that in your pipes!? What's underneath your bed!? Are you being betrayed by someone you love? Will evil be punished? Are there things you haven't even thought of that will harm you? Are people what they seem?

Are you safe? No.

Urban legends. They're the definitive tales of the 21st century, in all their grotesque and goofy glory. The ancient Greeks had their Iliad and their Odyssey. The northern tribes had their sagas and epics. The dainty Victorians had their fairy tales. Let 'em keep 'em. We've got The Microwaved Dog and The Girl Who Burnt to a Crisp in the Tanning Salon. They're a little paranoid, a litte creepy -- even a little ridiculous, sure -- but they're ours, and it's time they got some respect.

This book is filled with the legends you love, the legends you laugh at, and maybe even the legends you always thought really happened to your next door neighbor's best friend's youngest cousin. A treasury that cherishes the folklore of our time.
