      Perhaps the most disturbing book on earth is the COLOUR ATLAS OF FORENSIC PATHOLOGY (1975) You can view all the photos of suicides and murders and the scalpels cutting in, all fine. Then comes the pictures of mutilated and rotted children and babies. That really twists your stomach.

        I saw some stuff like that on Youtube when it first started before the flagging and removal of videos became common, horrible stuff.

        1975? Will it still be in print? Do you have a copy?

          I've just checked Amazon, there's what appears to be updated versions, one from 1999, but going for stupid prices. The 1975 one is "unavailable". I haven't checked ebay yet.
          Yeah, I've got a copy.

            Yeah, those Amazon prices are way too much, they don't even have any customer reviews. Luckily, there are other avenues to explore, and i'm aquiring my own copy as i type. To be honest with ya, i'm dreading looking at this; 780 pics! It's gonna be an endurance test.

                  I can't decide between the serial killer books and the rock biographies!

                    Yeah, i recently read You Are My Everything by Lee. Not his sickest, but well worth a look.

                      That magazine is nasty. I have the scans of them on my computer. There's an article on child murder which made me feel sick to my stomach. I remember the cover of one of them was a decomposing dick with sperm dripping off the end, and an article on Lucas and Toole that with sentences like 'they threw the dead bitch in the river' and 'he fucked the old cunt just before she died'. Nothing can shock me after reading those articles (and seeing those crime scene photos).

                        The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski - a vital piece of literature, a disturbing piece of literature. Whoever wrote it.

                        Bleeding The Orchid by Aidan Lord - castration, terrorism, public desecration of corpses - very fucking nuts.

                        The Menstruating Mall by Carlton Mellick III - didn't really like this, but it quite succinctly answers the question of the thread.

                          American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis is the only one that comes to mind...
                          I remember reading it in high school and grossing my classmates out by having them read certain parts.

                            Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk is by far the most disturbing book I have ever read. Especially the stories "Guts" and "Exodus." American Psycho was pretty nuts too.

                              I have a book on Arthur Shawcross that came with a tape of his police confession. That was pretty messed up what he did. I also have a book of short stories called Sex Crimes that a guy I know illustrated that's really sick.
