Wild Bill Hickok & Calamity Jane: Deadwood Legends by James D. McLairdMclaird does a good job of separating the facts from the legends that have been built around these two people. Although the story of their lives is a lot different than the popular myths about them they are still very interesting people in their own right and the author gives you a chance to see how they really were. Mclaird also explored the fantastic stories that were circulating about them and it was interesting to see how the legends and the stories started and grew even long after both had passed on and how those legends affected them during their lifetimes. The book is in two parts, first looking at Wild Bill and then Calamity Jane. It is very well documented and you feel that it is very well researched. I loved all the quotes from contemporary sources like newspapers and diaries. Mclaird carefully stays away from embellishing the stories but the writing doesn’t get dry or dull. I learned a lot of things that I never knew before about both of them and had a good time doing it.

Since the heyday of the big four — Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Chucky — slasher movie fans have continually searched for the next great villain. Even when it was a supernatural-style slasher, the modern settings were fresh, as opposed to the haunted houses, castles, and other locations of previous generations. After Peeping Tom , Psycho , Black Christmas , and a few other choice movies shaped the modern slasher, once the s ended and the s were well underway, media coverage of serial killers dominated cultural interest in the West. By the time the s rolled around, more murderers were turned into household names worldwide, and horror lovers were busy drinking from a seemingly endless cup of slasher movies. True crime has become a huge interest, from documentary shows on tv and Netflix to podcasts and talk radio.
