America may have had its fill of psychos for the last forty years, but no serial killer has inspired so many books and films (Pyscho, The Silence of the Lambs, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) as Wisconsin's cannibalistic handyman murderer, Ed Gein. None of them has been used as the ultimate ogre in countless children's stories and off-color jokes, and none of them has been found guilty of as many unspeakable atrocities as Ed Gein.

Ed Gein--Psycho! is his story. This is his legend.

From Our Editors

The weird, nightmarish tale of Ed Gein rocked America in the 1950s. His story is one of murder, grave robbing, mutilation, necrophilia and cannibalism. Gein, a Wisconsin woodsman, turned his lonely farmhouse into a slaughterhouse for humans. Woods not only documents the life and crimes of Ed Gein but also examines the psychology that drove him to commit his atrocities. Photos

Editorial Reviews

"On the kitchen table was a cup. The cup held four noses. Human. With horror, the sheriff opened Gein's icebox and found various human organs-livers, hearts, lungs-wrapped in butcher's paper. He was, by definition, a ghoul." -Milwaukee Journal
