I don't know if this was covered in the 'exploding spellbook': "was drained of his life-force by strong magic" (death by reading a spellbook)
"was transformed into a shadow" (death by a Slow Shadow?)
Updated to now include the book-drain death (should have remembered that when the exploding book came up). "Transformed" has already been included, though I haven't listed all the enemies that can do so since there are many (even living walls, oddly enough).
Just found another one:

Bringing this back up - I've got a new one.
Outlaw lead, the orcish paladin, was killed by vile kobold shaman magic.

"You feel a burning pain around your neck. You die."
That's already there - #39.
EDIT: Hey Grey, there's still no update for vile kobold magic!

Extinguished by an exploding fluff ball.
Died of exhaustion on a bad day. (Start as a spellcaster with Toughness 1 on Monday, and see if RNG hates you that much)
