The Panda Book of Horror was an anthology edited by Stuart Douglas and Paul Magrs, published by Obverse Books and featuring Iris Wildthyme, a series character with a complicated publishing history.

It also features Iris' companion Panda, a ten inch tall sentient toy panda. The book has a horror theme, and the title is a spoof on the series of paperback horror short story collections, The Pan Book of Horror.

Publisher's summary[]

Witness a slender neck being circled by rough hands... sharp metal violently stabbing and twisting... the emerging viscous dark red liquid being guzzled greedily, lingering on lips and teeth, followed by the laughter of madness. And that's just Iris and Panda at a wine tasting! "Pass me the bottle, woman! We might as well KILL it..."

The Panda Book of Horror will make your fur stand on end. Your blood AND your G&T will run ice cold.
