Editorial Reviews

Factsheet Five
"While I'm not obessed with serial killers and mass murderers, it's impossible not to be drawn into this immensely fascinating book....This is a very disturbing book, but one that you won't be able to put down."
Headpress U.K.
"Brian King has adopted a fascinating criteria for inclusion: these are 'pleasure-killers' who have sought to decipher, compliment or embellish their misdeeds with artwork or writings....And while a number of these scribes can conduct--ahem--a 'decent' story, many more can barely string a sentence together. Ironically, it is with the latter --in a R.D. Laing child-like innocence kind of way --that some of the choicest nuggests are to be had....'Lustmord' is fuelled by obsessives who are out of control, trying desperately to grab the handrail of life before they fall off the ride....a mightly hefty read that doesn't fail to deliver on a regular basis."
Village Voice
"King has gathered together a superstar roster of evil creative types... Contextualized here, their drawings, suicide notes, short stories, and so on, become a kind of Outsider literature, transgressive beyond A.M. Homes's wildest dreams."
