Sure to capture the imagination of devotees of true crime and the occultThis anthology of thirteen true crime stories includes the mysterious slaying of Charles Walton, who was found slashed and pierced to death in an area notorious for its associations with black magic; the murder of Eric Tombe, whose body was located because of a recurring dream in which his mother saw Eric down a well; the terrorizing of Hammersmith, London, in the early nineteenth century by the nocturnal appearance of a "ghost"; the Salem witchcraft trials; the murder of Rasputin, who was believed by some in Russia to be a miracle worker and by others to be a dangerous charlatan; a Scottish tale in which evidence given by the ghost of the victim was allowed at the murderer's trial; and the bizarre goings-on at 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, New York, where Ronnie DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family--the new occupants were subjected to all manner of sinister events, including the presence of poltergeists, or were they?

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the author as detective, each of Goodman's essays examines a particularly notorious murder and subsequent trial. He introduces the readers to the 1923 shooting at the Savoy Hotel in London of Prince Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey at the hands of his wife, Madame Marie-Marguerite Fahmy; he revisits the "Crime of the Century," the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby in March 1932 allegedly by Bruno Richard Hauptmann, and his subsequent execution for this crime, even though this case against Hauptmann has come under scrutiny; and he explores the 1980 serial killings committed by Michele de Marco Lupo, a gay man who coaxed other homosexuals to meet with him, then strangled and savagely bit them."--Jacket
Blood & ink : an international guide to fact-based crime literature by Albert Borowitz( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Borowitz provides a guide to fact-based crime literature focusing on two principal groups of works: nonfictional accounts of crimes and criminal trials, including essays, monographs, journalism, editions of court transcripts, prison histories, and criminal and police biographies and memoirs; and works of imaginative literature, such as novels, stories, or stage works, based on or inspired by actual crimes or criminals. The interplay between crime fact and fiction can be detected back to literature's earliest beginnings. True crime has long been the basis of many plots of memorable literature from Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter to Jean Genet's play The Maids, there has often been blood on the page. With entries as diverse as Bruce Springsteen's American Skin, a song about the killing of Amadou Diallo by four New York police officers, to Mark Twain's references to the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Roughing It To Death and the King's Horseman, Nobel Prize-winning Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka's account of the confrontation of British criminal laws and the ritual suicide mandated by Nigerian religion, Borowitz's work is truly comprehensive. Eminent historian Jacques Barzun agrees, stating that the variety of literary genres and languages is unique and should both instruct and entertain the large contingent of criminous minds. Blood and Ink, with forewords by Barzun and true-crime writer/historian Jonathan Goodman, will prove to be an invaluable resource to true-crime afficionados as well as to students and scholars of literature, cultural studies, and social history
