So, it's finally happened. (S)He pushed you just once too often, and now (S)He's lying on the floor in a pool of blood.

What do you do next ?

We'll tell you. You reach for the BorgCo Crime Scene Kit. It's a prepacked case containing everything you need* to solve your problem; overalls, rubber gloves, special detergents, and a book on how to get rid of bloodstains; a tough Tyvek bodybag; where to check for hair and fibre deposits; sprays to denature DNA, and a guide to identifying likely dump sites. On the enclosed CD-ROM is software to allow you to print authentic-looking receipts, along with a self-destructing printer, so they're untraceable - just right for your alibi.

Why pay for a fancy lawyer to keep you out of jail ?

       I think you'll have to sell it to a decoy market in order to do it legally. Perhaps a "kill your cat" kit, 8th?

       Would the publisher be an accessory *before* or *after* the fact? Or would this be protected speech?

       All the components of the kit are freely and legally available ... even books on "How to commit the perfect murder".

       The availability of components isn't a very strong argument. The availability of "How to commit..." books is somewhat stronger, but I assume that any prosecution of the publisher would have to come after the commission of a crime which (provably) relied on the book. Since I've never heard of such a prosecution, I'm wondering what's the obvious defence that deters it? Free speech, or something else?   

       HB un^H^Hfortunately has more engineers than lawyers, so I don't know if I'll get an answer.

       You would only need a small disclaimer saying, "for entertainment purposes only."

       It's sold as a "novelty item for display only", so good luck with your lawsuit.
