In The Bosom Of The Red Flowers

by J. M. Demetrios, In The Bosom Of The Red Flowers Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download In The Bosom Of The Red Flowers book, In 14th century Scotland, strange disappearances are taking place in the countryside. Travelers venture to the coast and never return. Someone is out there, waiting, an enemy of great intelligence--and an insatiable craving for human flesh. This is the tale of Alexander Sawney Bean, the most notorious cannibal in Scottish history, told from the perspective of his twin brother, a well-educated member of civilized Christian society. Sawney's benevolent twin recounts his own youthful admiration for his charismatic brother, which turns to horror upon realization of Sawney's demonic deeds. Embarking on a journey to find and subdue Sawney and his feared wife, Black Agnes Douglas, a seductive and powerful witch, he arrives at an astonishing place where seaside cliffs yield horrific secrets and a familiar valley blossoms with strange red flowers that radiate a mysterious warmth. In a final confrontation between piety and misanthropy, the reader is led to a shattering discovery about the identity of the twins and the true meaning of the red flowers.

Sawney Bean

by Blaine L. Pardoe, Sawney Bean Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sawney Bean book, Sawney Bean: Dissecting the Legend of Scotland's Infamous Cannibal Killer Family is the first major non-fiction historical investigation to explore one of the most heinous crimes in 16th-century Scotland, the legend of Sawney Bean and his cannibal family. For centuries, the story of Bean and his clan are part of Scotland's folklore. According to the legend, the family lived in a cave and preyed on travellers. When a survivor allegedly escaped to tell the tale, James I sent an expedition to capture the cannibals. They were supposedly found in their cave with the pickled remains of their victims. But was the story of the Galloway cannibal killers true? Using a wide range of research material, this infamous legend of horror will be taken apart and how the myth became accepted as reality will be explored in detail. True crime author and historian Blaine Pardoe tackles this legend, peeling the truth out of the fable and detailing the influence of this myth on popular culture such as the infamous splatter movie The Hills Have Eyes.

Technologies Of The Gothic In Literature And Culture

by Justin D. Edwards, Technologies Of The Gothic In Literature And Culture Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Technologies Of The Gothic In Literature And Culture book, This volume, a collection with contributions from some of the major scholars of the Gothic in literature and culture, reflects on how recent Gothic studies have foregrounded a plethora of technologies associated with Gothic literary and cultural production. The engaging essays look into the links between technologies and the proliferation of the Gothic seen in an excess of Gothic texts and tropes: Frankensteinesque experiments, the manufacture of synthetic (true?) blood, Moreauesque hybrids, the power of the Borg, Dr Jekyll’s chemical experimentations, the machinery of Steampunk, or the corporeal modifications of Edward Scissorhands. Further, they explore how techno-science has contributed to the proliferation of the Gothic: Gothic in social media, digital technologies, the on-line gaming and virtual Goth/ic communities, the special effects of Gothic-horror cinema. Contributors address how Gothic technologies have, in a general sense, produced and perpetuated ideologies and influenced the politics of cultural practice, asking significant questions: How has the technology of the Gothic contributed to the writing of self and other? How have Gothic technologies been gendered, sexualized, encrypted, coded or de-coded? How has the Gothic manifested itself in new technologies across diverse geographical locations? This volume explores how Gothic technologies textualize identities and construct communities within a complex network of power relations in local, national, transnational, and global contexts. It will be of interest to scholars of the literary Gothic, extending beyond to include fascinating interventions into the areas of cultural studies, popular culture, science fiction, film, and TV.

Before being hung as a witch upon the branches of the Hairy Tree 'Black' Agnes tells of her savage inbred family, of base incest, of the daily extreme clan violence and of her beatings and abuse by her hideous mother. She tells of the hundreds of travellers and merchants who were kidnapped, butchered and eaten over decades of the Beans tyrannical reign. To a scribe she spills her heart - himself a victim of the fiends. Thomas Hume is a tortured soul. His own parents were murdered by vigilante mobs who were seeking out the monsters. His saga takes him to King James who, because of his fascination with the occult then led his army to put an end to the barbarians. To the censorship of his poets who had, on his command recorded the epic saga and then paid the price to save the Kings reputation.An eerie yet moving gothic horror story by Mathew Horton

To Feast On Us As Their Prey

by Rachel B. Herrmann, To Feast On Us As Their Prey Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download To Feast On Us As Their Prey book, Long before the founding of the Jamestown, Virginia, colony and its Starving Time of 1609-1610--one of the most famous cannibalism narratives in North American colonial history--cannibalism, and accusations of cannibalism, played an important role in the history of food, hunger, and moral outrage. Why did colonial invaders go out of their way to accuse women of cannibalism? What challenges did Spaniards face in trying to explain Eucharist rites to Native peoples? What roles did preconceived notions about non-Europeans play in inflating accounts of cannibalism in Christopher Columbus's reports as they moved through Italian merchant circles? Asking questions such as these and exploring what it meant to accuse someone of eating people as well as how cannibalism rumors facilitated slavery and the rise of empires, To Feast on Us as Their Prey posits that it is impossible to separate histories of cannibalism from the role food and hunger have played in the colonization efforts that shaped our modern world.
