Diagram Prize Shortlist 2013: Weirdest Book Titles of the Year

The shortlist was just announced for the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year.

Horace Bent, who is in charge of the prize now, told The Telegraph, “It remains a great honor of mine to represent a prize that draws attention to authors not called Hilary Mantel that may need a little help in gaining column inches and subsequently entering public consciousness and bookshop bestseller bays."

The Diagram Prize was started at the Frankfurt Book Fair by Diagram Group founder Bruce Robertson. The first winner was in 1978: Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice.

The winner will be announced on March 22. The reader who nominated the winner will receive a bottle of “fairly passable” claret as a reward.

Voting can be done here.
