“Lustmord: The Writings and Artifacts of Murderers” is a compilation of essays, short stories, memoirs, confessions, letters, manifestoes, poetry, drawings, photographs and other works created by serial killers, mass murderers, cannibals, necrophiles, sexual sadists, psychopaths and assassins. These compelling documents are now available for the first time in one volume - an aesthetic testimony to the emotion and logic of a murderer's mind, a mind filled with terror and hatred, absurdity and horror, pathos and iniquity.

"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." — Dennis Cooper
