#SerialKiller Quarterly “Cruel Britannia” Fred and Rosemary West “Garden of Bones” @kimcresswell

Serial Killer Quarterly’s “Cruel Britannia” finishes off 2014 with a four-feature British bloodlust frenzy! Come take a trip with me into the dark heart of the British Isles, from the gritty northern industrial cities of Leeds, Bradford and Manchester to cosmopolitan London to the verdant countryside of Herefordshire!

SKQ_Vol1No4_Cover-1800x2700

Dr. Katherine Ramsland wades through the heavy fog surrounding the “Moors Murders”: a series of high-profile child killings committed in the Swinging Sixties by Scottish sadist Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, his English girlfriend and accomplice. To this day, they continue to be the most shocking and headline grabbing crimes in modern Britain! With Katherine’s background in psychology and philosophy, there is surely no one better suited to explore Brady’s “existentialist exercises” in murder, his psychopathic pedophilia, and folie-a-deux relationship with Hindley.

Where the “Moors Murders” remain Britain’s most notorious series of murders, the atrocities committed by Fred and Rosemary West are undoubtedly the most depraved. Kim Cresswell churns the stomach with her unbelievable account of incest, bestiality, rape, torture, murder, necrophilia and filicide, culminating in a “Garden of Bones” in Gloucester.

Carol Anne Davis looks at one of the greatest abuses of police power in English history: the entrapment of Colin Stagg for the 1992 ripper-style murder of blonde beauty Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common. Meanwhile, the real killer, Robert Napper, was already confined to Broadmoor asylum for the 1993 evisceration murder of Samantha Bisset and the rape and deadly suffocation of her infant daughter.

Edgar-Award winning author Burl Barer makes his Serial Killer Quarterly debut, lending his highly original voice to an intriguing re-examination of the murders ascribed to “Yorkshire Ripper” Peter Sutcliffe, and the phenomenon of homicidal fame.

Robert J. Hoshowsky, Aaron Elliott, and Kim Cresswell also look at three comparably notorious historical London slayers in their pieces on creepy old John Christie, “Acid Bath Vampire” John George Haigh, and Jack the Ripper suspect and bride poisoner George Chapman.

Warning: this issue contains an abundance of mutilation, necrophilia, and tea.

SERIAL KILLER QUARTERLY is now available in eBook format! #serialkillers #truecrime #kindle #itunes

SKQ_Vol1No1_Cover-1800x2700The debut issue of Serial Killer Quarterly, “21st Century Psychos”, explores seven of the new millennium’s most notorious multiple murder cases. In her feature story “Building a Mystery”, Dr. Katherine Ramsland examines the life and crimes of Israel Keyes – arguably the most organized and mobile serial murderer in American history. In direct contrast to Keyes’s secretive slayings, the Beltway Snipers, John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, murdered random civilians in broad daylight and openly taunted the authorities. Michael Newton – author of 265 books including the groundbreaking Encyclopedia of Serial Killers – details their three week reign of terror in his feature “Islam Will Explode”. Lee Mellor‘s “Web of Spiders” discusses the milestone case of “Slavemaster” John Edward Robinson: the Internet’s first serial killer. Other articles in “21st Century Psychos” include:

“Love in the Ashes” – Arthur Ellis-award nominee Robert J. Hoshowsky takes on Sheila Labarre – an aging nymphomaniac who seduced, slaughtered, and incinerated three male victims on her New Hampshire farm, challenging our views on the nature of female serial killers forever.

“The Interview” – Curtis Yateman’s impressionistic look at the 2009-2010 murders committed by Canadian Airforce base commander Col. Russell Williams.

“Checkmate” – The story of post-Soviet Russia’s most prolific serial slaughterer, “Chessboard Killer” Alexander Pichushkin, as recounted by Grinning Man Press co-founder Aaron Elliott.

“Canada’s Killer Countryboy?” – Kim Cresswell sheds light on clean-cut “country boy” Cody Legebokoff, who at the age of 21 was charged with the murders of four women in western Canada. Is his guilt a certainty, or is there more to this story than meets the eye?
