Conquering Darkness Book Excerpt:

Conquering Darkness, Memoir of the Serial Killer's Wife (Revised Edition) is a painfully candid account of the lives of two people who grew up together in West Oakland, California. Their story, would, in a few aspects, mirror the simple plot of "boy meets girl." Everybody knows that story-right? Boy meets girl; they fall in love and live happily ever after. However, the lives of Alice and William were woven together by threads of early parental abandonment and gross parental abuse that came creeping in from their pasts. Alice's father abandoned her at the delicate age of five. That early experience filled her with insecurity she could not shake; this, in turn, gave birth to a fragile and emotional state of mind, which made Alice desperate to find a man to replace her father and the love he had given to her. William on the other hand, grew up with both his parents in the home, but his mother verbally and physically abused him. He desperately struggled to love and please her-but to no avail. William's misguided search for love would take him on an ill-fated journey with all kinds of dark psychological twist and turns that ruptured his childhood and split his adult mind down the middle; one side was good, and one side was pure evil. This journey started, unbeknownst to Alice, long before she joined William in marriage. But how would the young Alice know whom she was really dealing with? It took decades for her to truly understand that question. More importantly, how would Alice ever understand who she was then or who she is now? This memoir, written by Alice Swafford and her daughter, Crystal Choyce-Lige, provides an up close and honest retrospective account of what life was like with a budding serial rapist and serial murderer, who flew under the radar of his family and law enforcement for decades. How? He was very, very clever and cunning, playing the part of husband and father, while luring and preying upon the most vulnerable people in our society. The essential questions asked and then answered are: How and why could this nightmare happen and then last for so long? Why couldn't Alice see what was right in front of her? The answers will enlighten as well as surprise those who embark upon the riveting adventure of reading this book.

The Serial Killer Files Book Excerpt:

There are many myths about serial killers: that they are all dysfunctional loners; all white males; only motivated by sex; that they all travel and operate across a wide area; cannot stop killing; are all insane, or evil geniuses; and that they all want to get caught. Of course, there are some serial killers who fit into these categories, but the married Green River Killer was not a dysfunctional loner; there are plenty of female and non-Caucasian serial killers; Dr Harold Shipman was certainly not motivated by sex; many serial killings (such as the Ipswich prostitute murders carried out by Steve Wright) happen within a confined area; the 'BTK Killer', Dennis Rader, stopped killing in 1991, but wasn't caught until fourteen years later. Many serial killers may have a low animal cunning, or be 'street smart', but few of them are Mensa-level geniuses. Each of the thirty cases covered here is unusual in some respect, perhaps in the way in which the killer carried out their crimes, the choice of victims, the way in which they were apprehended, or the method of their execution. The cases are presented alphabetically by country - from Australia via Colombia, Great Britain, Indonesia, Iran, South Africa and elsewhere to the United States - and then chronologically. They come from across history and from all over the world. The author has gone back as far as possible to contemporary source material - newspaper accounts, trial evidence, interviews with perpetrators or survivors - rather than rely on the increasingly blurred truth to be found online and in far too many collections.

This story takes place in Los Angeles. The serial killer commits his crimes in many of the parks in LA. At one time, he almost kills the detective who is in charge of catching him. The reason for the killer starting down his path of killing is a horrifying story in itself. The extent the killer plans on just how he will prepare himself for these killings and the way he does them is unbelievable. Some of the chances he takes shows his nerve and determination. This story shows what police work is about. There is some excitement, some danger, and some dullness. Above it all, it shows the dedication most police officers have.

Serial Killer Groupies Book Excerpt:

This book delves into the twisted psychology of women attracted to some of the most notorious monsters on the planet, giving true crime readers real insight into this phenomena One of the most common reasons given by women who date serial killers is the fact that they ‘see’ the little boy that the horrible man once used to be, and they believe that they can nurture that kid, hence removing the cruel and harmful nature of the killers and making them amicable again. Known as ‘serial killer groupies’ or even ‘prison groupies’ by some, a great number of these women have shown a surprising desire to get connected to the serial killer of their choice. A large number of these women have become directly aligned with these killers, and some have even married these hardened criminals. Groupies will do almost anything to get close to the prisoner that they are attracted to. They give up jobs, family, spend money on him, and even move across country to be in the same town as him. Some SKG's are attracted to the celebrity status they acquire. They go on talk shows to announce their undying love for the serial killer and proclaim that he was not capable of these killings. This book depicts several such cases and you'll meet some of these SKG's. "If you seek to understand or study the unexplainable, this book may be your key to some grasp of what is beyond imagining....why some women love serial killers!" -- (Bernard Lee DeLeo), bestselling author of over twenty-five novels "The obsessed groupies of predators such as Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker) are just as fascinating as the serial killers they love. Best-selling author RJ Parker offers powerful insights into the needs, motivations and dark desires of women who pursue and sometimes marry the most infamous killers in history. This powerful psychological examination of these women is not to be missed. Well researched, Parker sheds new light on the curious sub-culture of groupies in his new true crime book, SERIAL KILLER GROUPIES" -- (Scott Bonn, PhD) Professor, criminologist and author of Why We Love Serial Killers: The Curious Appeal of the World's Most Savage Murderers

British Serial Killers Book Excerpt:

The book is about British serial killers from the 19th century all the way to the present day. I have written the book to show the readers what a serial killer is and why he is so different from any other killers. In Britain it is estimated that there are between 70 and 80 known serial killers and the book will cover about 75% of them. Fortunately for us most serial killers are arrested and sentenced to very long prison sentences and of course the earlier serial killers were executed. But is also shows some serial killers who have remained unidentified and have never been arrested.

Draculas Vampires and Other Undead Forms Book Excerpt:

Since the publication of Dracula in 1897, Bram Stoker's original creation has been a source of inspiration for artists, writers, and filmmakers. From Universal's early black-and-white films and Hammer's Technicolor representations that followed, iterations of Dracula have been cemented in mainstream cinema. This anthology investigates and explores the far larger body of work coming from sources beyond mainstream cinema reinventing Dracula. Draculas, Vampires and Other Undead Forms assembles provocative essays that examine Dracula films and their movement across borders of nationality, sexuality, ethnicity, gender, and genre since the 1920s. The essays analyze the complexity Dracula embodies outside the conventional landscape of films with which the vampire is typically associated. Focusing on Dracula and Dracula-type characters in film, anime, and literature from predominantly non-Anglo markets, this anthology offers unique perspectives that seek to ground depictions and experiences of Dracula within a larger political, historical, and cultural framework.

Serial Killers Book Excerpt:

'To me it was like hunting. Hunting people down.' Anatoly Onoprienko From perverse acts of cannibalism and dark sexual fantasies to vicious acts motivated by greed and a simple lust for blood, this book reveals the methods and motivations of some of the world's most notorious serial killers, including Juan Corona, Ian Brady & Myra Hindley, Pee Wee Gaskins and Ivan Milat. Discover the true stories behind celebrity murderers whose names have become legend, including Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Leonard Lake and Charles Ng, as well as the chilling truth about psychopaths such as Anatoly Onoprienko, whose urge to murder whole families was suppressed by the USSR and has only recently come to light. Whatever the personal stories that emerge from this line-up of fifty twisted individuals, Serial Killers is a compelling testament, and warning, of the potential of human behaviour for true horror and pure evil.
