Bad Clowns Investigated at Page One
Press Release [ Wed Apr 20 2016 1:00 PM ]
Benjamin Radford, writer and skeptical investigator, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, April 23, to talk about and sign his non-fiction effort, Bad Clowns.
The book is described as such: "Bad clowns—those malicious misfits of the midway who terrorize, haunt, and threaten us—have long been a cultural icon. This book describes the history of bad clowns, why clowns go bad and why many people fear them. Going beyond familiar clowns such as the Joker, Krusty, John Wayne Gacy and Stephen King's Pennywise, it also features bizarre, lesser-known stories of weird clown antics including Bozo obscenity, Ronald McDonald haters, killer clowns, phantom-clown abductors, evil-clown panics, sex clowns, carnival clowns, troll clowns and much more. Bad Clowns blends humor, investigation and scholarship to reveal what is behind the clown's dark smile."
Radford is a writer, investigator and columnist for Discovery News. He is the author of eight books, most recently Mysterious New Mexico: Miracles, Magic, and Monsters in the Land of Enchantment and Tracking the Chupacabra: The Vampire Beast in Fact, Fiction, and Folklore, both published by the University of New Mexico Press. Radford lives in Corrales.

Ed Gein's Haus
By Geoffrey Anjou [ Tue Mar 2 2010 4:27 PM ]
I was perusing BoingBoing, instead of working and came across one of the top ten serial killers: Ed Gein. He was the inspiration for Psycho, Leatherface, and Jame Gumb.
I haven't read the book David Pescovitz recommends, True Crime: An American Anthology, but it does seem like good bedtime reading. Check out the pictures from LIFE magazine, don't worry nothing gruesome.
