Psychos Serial Killers, Depraved Madmen, and the Criminally Insane (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
This collection of thirty-five terrifying tales of serial killers at large, written by the great masters of the genre, plumbs the horrifying depths of a deranged mind and the forces of evil that compel a human being to murder, gruesomely and methodically, over and over again.
From Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs) to Patrick Bateman (American Psycho), stories of serial killers and psychos loom large and menacing in our collective psyches. Tales of their grisly conquests have kept us cowering under the covers, but still turning the pages. Psychos is the first book to collect the scariest and most well-crafted fictional works about these deranged killers in a single volume. John Skipp provides fascinating insight, through two nonfiction essays, into our insatiable obsession with serial killers and how these madmen are portrayed in popular culture. Resources at the end of the book include lists of the genre's best long-form fiction, movies, websites, and writers.
