Summary

The disturbing Central Florida cult murder case is revealed in full shocking detail in this true crime by the reporter who covered the case for decades.   Central Florida residents were horrified when sixteen-year-old vampire cult leader Rod Ferrell was arrested for bludgeoning a cult member's parents to death. When investigators realized the couple's fifteen-year-old daughter was missing, they feared she was another victim.   Detectives and journalists across three states soon uncovered a web of blood-drinking occult rituals, illicit sex, dysfunctional families, and spiritual warfare. And when police officers captured the teens, they discovered that the murdered couple's daughter was among them. But was she a victim or a participant?   Ferrell faced the death penalty, sparking Constitutional battles over capital punishment and juveniles in the court system. Psychologists working to save him were locked in opposition with prosecutors who wanted him dead. Decades later, the court battles continue. Is Ferrell a changed man deserving freedom? Or is he still gaming the system?

    This diary is the fourth book written by me, a collection of twenty compositions representing the thought and certainties of our modern age. Tales about a not very distant past that could be identified with today`s reality, the present not reviewed journalistically, people who do not have common public representations, too busy in a certain sense to think what they could never do, until what was taken away from them to not understand a contemporary good or evil. You also tell autobiographical stories like personal experiences with others or possessions, peace and pain, miracles, love and friendships. Do you declare yourself and the world as a hobby or sport or? You need to declare yourself and the world according to your own experiences in concrete human and material relationships. It is a diary written in a simple way, a phenotype of Christian and present feelings, it wants to represent a door to the future, a new party. The period of letters reaches from August 2010 to May 2013.

    The first, authorised biography of the anarchic comic genius, much cherished for his performances on stage and screen.
    Ken Campbell (1941–2008) was a one-man whirlwind who tore through the British theatre establishment using well-rehearsed anarchy and a genius for surreal comedy. Starting out in rep at Stoke-on-Trent, he founded the Ken Campbell Road Show, whose members included the then-unknown Bob Hoskins and Sylvester McCoy, and which toured pubs and clubs with dramatised urban myths and shaggy-dog stories.
    His later shows included Illuminatus! – the first show at the National Theatre's studio – and the 22-hour The Warp, the longest play in the world. On television he played corrupt lawyer Alex Gladwell in the 1970s series Law and Order, and was Alf Garnett's neighbour Fred Johnson in the sitcom In Sickness and in Health. He later found a devoted audience with his mesmerising one-man shows, which he toured worldwide.
    Ken Campbell 'became a grand old man of the fringe, though without ever discarding his inner enfant terrible' - Independent
    Theatre critic Michael Coveney was given unrestricted access to Campbell's letters, notebooks and original scripts. From these and from interviews with Campbell's many devoted/bemused collaborators, he has chronicled the life of the anarchic and uncompromising genius that was Ken Campbell. Alternately inspiring and jaw-dropping, The Great Caper is the story of a unique and inimitable talent in British theatre.
    'Delightful... brings Campbell affectionately, hilariously yet not uncritically, to life... top marks' - The Times - Book of the Week
    'Terrific' - Daily Mail
    'A delightful romp' - Fortean Times
    'A long-serving dramatic critic, Coveney fully understands the theatrical traditions that sometimes produce uniqueness, and he brings knowledge and discernment as well as great affection to his subject.' - John Stokes, TLS

    By 1987, David Bowie was at a creative, critical, and commercial low. His most recent album was dismissed by the music press, his latest tour written off as a disaster. Fifteen years after becoming the most colourfully controversial superstar in recent rock history, Bowie was seen as a spent force.Almost twenty years later, Bowie has re-established himself at the very peak of his profession in one of the most extraordinary comebacks in rock history. His 1995 release of the critically-astonishing 1:Outside album has been followed by equally groundbreaking efforts. He is a content family man, married to super-model Iman, and one of the richest musicians in the world.While most biographies on Bowie still focus on his early years, Hallo Spaceboy: The Rebirth of David Bowie is the first to chronicle the comeback in detail. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with fans, colleagues and associates, it is also the long-gestating follow-up to Dave Thompson’s Moonage Daydream (1987), widely hailed among the best David Bowie biographies.
