Phineas Gage: A Gruesome but True Story About Brain Science
Beware the tamping spike!
This book has been out for a few years, but deserves to be mentioned anew. It is written for middle school readers, and will please those who want something exciting, not too long, and not mushy. Phineas Gage was working on the railroad in 1848 when an errant explosion sent a crow bar-sized tamping spike up through his neck, past his eye socket, and right out the top of his head. Appropriately ...

To Have and To Kill: Nurse Melanie McGuire, an Illicit Affair, and the Gruesome Murder of Her Husband
St. Martin's True Crime
Gambling, Adultery and Murder
To Have and to Kill, John Glatt John Glatt wrote twelve other true crime books. I read this because the crime happened in the county; it is not politically important or of national importance. The 368 pages seemed a lot, but I wanted to learn what they wouldn't print in the local newspaper. The `Acknowledgments' said Glatt attended every day of the seven week trial. Glatt regularly spoke to ...

Barron's Educational Series
great resource for artists
If you can't work from a real model, this book is the next best thing. My older sister looks kind of like a zombie, but I can't look at her for very long without wanting to puke. So I just use this, and it's great.

Kilborn Strikes again!
I fell in love with Kilborn's writing in the book "AFRAID". I have been waiting ever since for him to follow that master up. Now, I've got it. I became "friends" on FB with J. A. Konrath after reading AFRAID. I don't know why I hadn't discovered him before then. I have kept up with his informational put outs and enjoy his interactions with his fans. I love his persona Jack Kilborn! He by far in ...

The third of a must read trilogy
Let me start out by giving my personal rating of this well written trilogy. 1. 13 bullets ... Very good. 2. 99 Coffins ... Excellent. 3. Vampire Zero..

Good Horror fiction is hard to find. Good Horror in the short story form is even harder. I'm SO glad I came across this collection. The stories are alternately scary, suspenseful, funny, and totally gross, the author can write ridiculous scenarios in a way that lets you buy into them. Whether writing new twists on classic stories or under 500 word quickies, the stories are well developed and ...
Killer Gators and Crocs: Gruesome Encounters from Across the Globe
The Lyons Press
Don't read this book outside ...
If human death is not your cup of tea, forget "Killer Gators and Crocs". The carnage here is resplendant. As many as five or six people die per page. After a couple chapters of redeeming scientific value (boring) the killing begins with "Chapter Three - Contact with People, Not a Good Idea". This book may actually save some lives. While reading, I often said "Note to self: Don't do ...

America's Most Hated Woman: The Life And Gruesome Death of Madalyn Murray O'hair
Ann Rowe Seaman
Goes the Distance
There aren't many who live their last days in more sensational and mysterious circumstances than Madalyn Murray O'Hair and her family. It is amazing that there hasn't been more attention, although the reason is probably due to the length of time between their disappearance and the discovery of the bodies (as well as the criminal trials). The publicity was victimized by the drawn-out nature of ...

Glatt's Book Rules
Having read both John Glatt's and Ann Rule's books, I was truthfully surprised to find that I much preferred Glatt's version. I found it to be more brutally honest, less biased, and much more compelling a read. He also goes into much more depth in many areas than Ann Rule did. Rule's reputation may be excellent, but I feel her earlier works such as "Small Sacrifices" and "Every Breath You ...

The short story is a dying art but here is a huge collection of them. In fact there must be close to 40 in all. Future zombies, past zombies, weird zombies. Anbd best of all, shamling zombies. Now zombie's are on ...
