Publisher's Summary

A chilling, lavishly illustrated who's who of the most despicable people ever to walk the earth, featuring both rare and best loved stories from the hit podcast Lore, now an online streaming series.

Here are the incredible true stories of some of the mortals who achieved notoriety in history and folklore through horrible means.

Monsters of this sort - serial killers, desperate criminals and socially mobile people with much darker double lives - are, in fact, quite real...including H. H. Holmes, the infamous Chicago serial killer; William Brodie, the Edinburgh criminal mastermind who inspired The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; and Bela Kiss, a Hungarian tinsmith with a most disturbing hobby: collecting women in gasoline drums. As Aaron Mahnke reminds us, sometimes the truth is even scarier than the lore.

It's good, but

It's good but covers a lot of the same ground as the podcast. Either or?

Nice but...

If you listen to the podcast there will be few surprises in the book. Not really worth it almost exactly same to the book
