The machine had been invented a few years ago a machine that could tell from just a sample of your blood how you were going to die It didn t give you the date and it didn t give you specifics It just spat out a sliver of paper upon which were printed in careful block letters the words DROWNED or CANCER or OLD AGE or CHOKED ON A HANDFUL OF POPCORN It let people know how they were going to die MACHINE OF DEATH tells thirty four different stories about people who know how they will die Prepare to have your tears jerked your spine tingled your funny bone tickled your mind blown your pulse quickened or your heart warmed Or better yet simply prepare to be surprised Because even when people do have perfect knowledge of the future there s no telling exactly how things will turn out Featuring stories by Randall Munroe Ben Yahtzee Croshaw Tom Francis Camille Alexa Erin McKean Jeff Stautz and many others Featuring illustrations by Kate Beaton Kazu Kibuishi Aaron Diaz Jeffrey Brown Scott C Roger Langridge Karl Kerschl Cameron Stewart and many others Machine of Death tells 34 stories about people who know how they will die The machine doesn t give the date or specifics using only a blood sample it just spits out a sliver of paper upon which are printed in careful block letters words such as drowned cancer old age or choked on a handful of popcorn The realization that we could now know how we are going to die changes the world people became at once less fearful and more afraid For every possibility the machine closes it seems to open several more with varying degrees of plausibility Over time the machine is reverse engineered and duplicated Eventually there are machines in every doctor s office and in booths at the mall People can pay someone or perhaps get it done for free but the results are the same no matter which machine is used they are at least consistent Machine of Death features stories by R
