Top Ten Bizarre Literary Deaths

I ran into this great post over at Alternative Reel today.

It profiles the ten most bizarre literary deaths, including Ambrose Bierce and Leo Tolstoy.

From The Page:

Ambrose Bierce disappeared in Mexico while reporting on Pancho Villa’s rebellion. May have been murdered by bandits.

The list is great, but fails to mention Ernest Hemingway’s final act of cowardice, and Sylvia Plath’s quasi-successful attempt at head casserole.

Your cocktail party conversations just got way mo’ better.
