Overview

Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924), a Vicar in the Church of England in Devon during the 19th century, was also an archaeologist, folklorist, historian and a chronicler of man’s darkest sides.

Somewhat of a contradiction himself, Baring-Gould was said to have taught classes with a pet bat on his shoulder. Yet, he is most remembered for writing the classic Christian hymn 'Onward Christian Soldiers.'

This concise little book is made up of excerpts from some of his best research based on true cases of pure evil lurking in the souls and actions of some so-called human beings that deny a rational explanation and cause horror in those who read them. All cases are real and documented.

What makes these accounts most chilling is the fact that many of these incidents tell of a total transformation or metamorphosis into evil – with some of perpetrators even swearing before they were executed that they turned into beasts and worshipped the devil when committing their ghastly atrocities.

While at times this book – illustrated with 12 original sketches -- is not a pleasant read, it is impossible to put down.

This book documents the horrific and even supernatural evil that lurks among mankind just read to pounce if given a chance. It was easy to read, but also very disturbing.

This book proved to me that serial murderers, devil worshipers, ghouls and werewolves have always been with us. These true accounts from history were shocking...
