Scott Ian, famous for cofounding legendary thrash metal band Anthrax and only slightly less so for his iconic beard, has done and seen a lot in his decades of touring. Those of you who have heard Scott's memoir I'm the Man may know the history of the band, but Access All Areas divulges all the zany, bizarre, funny, and captivating tales of what went on when the band wasn't busy crafting chart-topping albums.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It's a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real. They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made 28 years ago calls them to reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city's children.

In May of 2007, in a small, quiet town in the South Moravia region of the Czech Republic, a technical glitch - a simple, accidental crossing of signals - revealed a terrible case of child abuse, and an entire nation watched transfixed with horror as the grisly extent of the perversion of the maternal instinct was revealed. Two small brothers named Jakub and Ondrej, nine and seven years old respectively, were revealed to have suffered confinement, mutilation, psychological brutality, and cannibalism at the hands of several people.

This
book was all over the place and very misleading, in the beginning the narrator lets you know that if you are sensitive to this subject matter, which obviously you're not or you wouldn't seek it out like us serial killer aficionados tend to do, then you need to stay away from this book. The Girl Next Door" A good Jack Ketchum read and it's non-fictional counterpart are much more satisfying than this drivel, the price of the book alone should tell you all you need to know, and I knew better but it was a bargain so... if you like subpar less than brilliant writing then I recommend this book. If you like to be entertained and actually know what the hell the narrator is talking about then I would not recommend this one. I wish I had something positive to say but I really can't find one redeeming quality in this book. I've never given such a vicious review of a book in my life but I felt I really needed to know, or let you people know rather, what you were in for.

James Hetfield, with whom many years ago Mustaine founded a band known as Metallica, once observed, with some incredulity, that Mustaine must have been born with a horseshoe up his ass. That's how lucky he's been, how fortunate he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. And Hetfield is right. Mustaine has been lucky. He has been blessed. But here's the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget it's there.

some of the most intense stories you're likely to hear from a drug addict, and somehow, someway, he made it to this point. His career is amazing and it should be heard by everyone.

I'm the Man is the fast-paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from the man who cofounded Anthrax, the band that proved to the masses that brutality and fun didn't have to be mutually exclusive. Through various lineup shifts, label snafus, rock 'n' roll mayhem, and unforeseen circumstances galore, Scott Ian has approached life and music with a smile, viewing the band with deadly seriousness while recognizing the ridiculousness of the entertainment industry.

Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip - a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfre. The boys are a tight-knit crew. There’s Kent, one of the most popular kids in school; Ephraim and Max, also well-liked and easygoing; then there’s Newt the nerd and Shelley the odd duck. For the most part, they all get along and are happy to be there - which makes Scoutmaster Tim’s job a little easier.

I feel like this book would better be served as a horror movie, if you like those contagion breakout type of movies which I do not care for generally speaking, it is not a terrible read but I wouldn't listen to it twice.

September. A beautiful New York editor retreats to a lonely cabin on a hill in the quiet Maine beach town of Dead River - off season - awaiting her sister and friends. Nearby, a savage human family with a taste for flesh lurks in the darkening woods, watching, waiting for the moon to rise and night to fall.

I like my horror like I like my spaghetti, really messy. I would rather see this on screen than listen to it although it did paint a pretty gruesome narrative which is ultimately what I was seeking and found. the narrator is fabulous on this one, every other character sounds like the old man in Pet Sematary.

Hollywood's make-believe maniacs like Jason, Freddy, and Hannibal Lecter can't hold a candle to real-life monsters like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and scores of others who have terrorized, tortured, and terminated their way across civilization throughout the ages. Now, from the much-acclaimed author of Deviant, Deranged, and Depraved, comes the ultimate resource on the serial killer phenomenon.

while I've enjoyed all of the Harold Schechter books that I've read, this one just tends to repeat itself and I understand why he does that but he's covered a lot of this in earlier works. And for those who are not familiar with some of these fiends, their deeds are mentioned & a roundabout of their crimes but no real gritty detail is given for the most part. I give it a 3 though because I listened to it all the way through it and it was not terrible.

After a bizarre and disturbing incident at the funeral of matriarch Marian Savage, the McCray and Savage families look forward to a restful and relaxing summer at Beldame, on Alabama's Gulf Coast, where three Victorian houses loom over the shimmering beach. Two of the houses are habitable, while the third is slowly and mysteriously being buried beneath an enormous dune of blindingly white sand. But though long uninhabited, the third house is not empty. Inside, something deadly lies in wait.

After reading "Cold Moon Over Babylon", I was expecting a punch in the gut type of Thriller but this one like the title suggests, Falls a little flat for me. I found the premise someone exciting but too much time was spent in the three houses. don't get me wrong, this is a good book, I just felt like the pace was like walking through quicksand. all in all, a solid 3 out of 5 isn't bad.
