Anthology on medical fictions.

I've run across an anthology on works of medical fiction edited by Nickianne Moody (Liverpool John Moores University) and Julia Hallam (University of Liverpool), including essays such as "Sacrificial Corpses: The Therapeutic Corpses of Agatha Christie" by Clues editorial board member Gill Plain (University of St. Andrews) and "From Coma to Chaos: Notes on the Evolution of the Medical Thriller" by Susan Aldridge. Further details here.

Another possible book of interest: The Deadly Dinner Party by Jonathan A. Edlow, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, who examines some real-life medical mysteries. The Australian Broadcasting Co.'s Book Show interviews the author here.
