Human Monsters

by Wolfgang Schwartz

They were the monsters under the bed and everyone was afraid to look. Anthony Hardy, a man who has been obsessed with Jack the Ripper for most of his life, took to the streets to emulate his hero. Hardy was eventually given the name ‘the Camden Ripper’, but this time, police are on to his game.Colin Pitchfork, also known as the Footpath Murderer and the Black Pad Killer was born 23 March 1961 in Bristol, England. Because Pitchfork’s two murders occurred in Leicestershire, the two murders have sometimes been referred to as the Enderby Murders or the Narborough Murders. The early 20-something Pitchfork—a local baker by trade who was married and had two small sons—was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life for the rape and murder of two 15-year-old girls, Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashwor...

VIOLENT REVENGE - True Crime Stories: True Crime Stories

by Roger Harrington

And if you wrong us, do we not revenge? –ShylockVengeance. It is a primal emotion, one borne from our innately human desires for justice and equality. For some it manifests as simple acts, a refused invitation or an ignored hand shake. Sometimes it gets bigger. Cars get keyed and houses vandalized. But sometimes the human desire for vengeance is so great, so overwhelming, that the only way for them to get satisfaction is through violence. Ever since Homer wrote about the vengeance of the heartbroken Agamemnon, artists and writers have been fascinated with revenge. Shakespeare wrote it into The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Othello, and finally and perhaps most graphically, Titus Andronicus. By the Victorian era, Robert Louis Stevenson had written The Black Arrow and Edgar Allen Poe had wri...

BRITISH CRIME: True Crime Stories

by Roger Harrington

Britain is known the world over for its beautiful scenery, rich culture, and often-romanticised history. As a British resident for the best part of my life, it feels a safe, welcoming place to live, with a soft pull that captures the imagination of people from across the world. But just beneath the surface, something is truly rotten in the state of the United Kingdom, and like most countries, it is no stranger to the evils and horrors of criminal deeds.Since its formation by the Act of Union in 1707, the United Kingdom of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland has endured more than its fair share of troubles. From sick child murders and abuse through to terrorist acts, political assassination and some down-right brazen armed robberies, the country has borne witness to some truly hor...

Henry VIII and His Court

by Herbert Tree

Holbein has drawn the character and written the history of Henry on the canvas of his great picture. Masterful, cruel, crafty, merciless, courageous, sensual, through-seeing, humorous, mean, matter of fact, worldly-wise, and of indomitable will, Henry the Eighth is perhaps the most outstanding figure in English history. The reason is not far to seek. The genial adventurer with sporting tendencies and large-hearted proclivities is always popular with the mob, and “Bluff King Hal,” as he was called, was of the eternal type adored by the people. He had a certain outward and inward affinity with Nero. Like Nero, he was corpulent; like Nero, he was red-haired; like Nero, he sang and poetised; like Nero, he was a lover of horsemanship, a master of the arts and the slave of his passions. If h...

Asperger’s Looking In From The Outside

by Sally Watson

I was twenty five years old when I was diagnosed with Asperger’s. Until then my parents just thought that I was difficult, lazy and perhaps a little shy.
I’m hoping that my story will help people to have a better insight in what it is like having to live with Asperger’s every day. I also hope that people who have Asperger’s will be encouraged to know that they are not on their own.
Below are some of the topics that my story includes;
Experiencing basic education at school; seeking Further Education qualifications at college; struggling to find suitable employment; the nightmare of the Job Centre expectations; coping with the complexities of the benefit system, and the mystery of socialising with people!

The REAL Roosevelts: An Omitted History: What PBS & Ken Burns Didn't Tell You

by King, M

In the pantheon of American heroes, few names are more revered than that of 'Roosevelt'. As the decades pass into the century mark, the recent works of "historians" such as Doris Kearns Goodwin and film producer Ken Burns have exalted the Holy Trinity of Roosevelt to demi-god status.

There was Theodore, hero of San Juan Hill, builder of the Panama Canal, scourge of the big bad "Robber Barons", and tireless champion of "the worker" whose manly image is immortalized in the stone of Mount Rushmore.

There was Franklin, the altruistic savior of America who turned against his own class to serve "the common man". FDR, we are told, saved America, and indeed, the world. For that, his own image is immortalized on every American dime.

And finally, there was E...

The British Mad Dog: Debunking the Myth of Winston Churchill

by King, M and David Dees

*250 Pages / 500 Images
Check any list of ‘great men’ of the 20th Century and you’re sure to find Winston Churchill ranked near the top. It was the courage, the strength, the indomitable will and the inspirational oratory of ‘The British Bull Dog’ - we are told - that saved Britain and the ‘free world’ from capitulating to Hitler.
For such noble attributes and deeds, statues of ‘Sir Winston’ stand all over England, and even in Canada, the USA and continental Europe. Countless schools bear his name, as do parks, towns, squares, highways, streets, tanks, submarines, ships, mountain ranges, trust funds and even cigars.
More than just a great statesman, Churchill was – the court-historians assure us – a literary giant as wel...

KLAN: Killing America ("The First-Draft of History" Book 1)

by Ken Rossignol and Andrew Barnes

The strife and horrors of the Civil War in America were raw with the wounds of the war lasting for decades; and affecting those who lived in both the North and the South. As the nation struggled to find unity, the forces of darkness and of those who wished to rule through intimidation and terror, spread their wicked ways under the cover of white sheets.
This is the story of the Ku Klux Klan and their chief brand: Lynchings, as told in the original newspaper stories from journals across the nation. Some are brief, telling only of a single attack while others are more comprehensive and detailed, telling the story with the inclusion of complex and emotional occurrences.
The attempt of the KKK to cloak the power of control over others with fear and violence is explained in some o...
