I love it when I'm just doing a quick check for something, and accidentally happen on, say, the Wikipedia entry about book curses. I especially liked this tidbit:
Most curses were written in the book's colophon by the medieval scribe. This was the one place in a medieval manuscript where a scribe was free to write what he wished so book curses tend to be unique to each book.
So many possibilities.

“Curses in the Colophon” – Oh, yes, I feel a poem coming in….
Or an anthology!
