Yea, PURE has been online for awhile. I scanned some copies of Parasite for someone I know privately but if someone here is looking for them I might upload them if you PM me, I won't post them for everyone though so don't bother asking.

Each issue of Parasite was 6 pages I think: 2 reg. 8.5x11 pages that was double the length (Paper that was 8.5x22) then folded in half plus one page inside. Each issue was a diff color. Lots of text; I liked his work more when he used books, docu's, etc to work from. I could careless about shit like conversations in coffeeshops or some friend hugging him on the streetcorner or that he eats his cum behind dumpsters on the way home from bars..

I have a copy of Dodd's diary & the book, WHEN A MONSTER COMES OUT OF THE CLOSET, haas Dodd in his own words (comparing cocksize on boys!). The diary was posted on a true crime forum years ago by the author of the other paperback book on Dodd. Gary King, I think?

No, Gary King wrote "Driven to Kill" which is an other book focusing on Dodd; the book you mentioned is written by John Rose & Lori Steinhorst (and in my humble opinion is much more entertaining than the King's book)

Just went over to Amazon to blow half of my check on a few more Sotos books and noticed that they had a pre-order choice for Tool in paperback, release date February of 2011 by Nine-Banded Books who is also releasing a cheaper paperback edition of Comfort and Critique which will be $12 and Tool is going for a nice $10.

I wonder is Best book would be text or collages? Or both?
His collages are just about ideas. Very little of visual pleasure. Simple cut & paste where technic and structure of work seems irrelevant. Just presentation of certain ideas/themes.

Haha, Sotos writes the perfect books for good parenting. Those reviews are all from Amazon though, I think the entire search engine for books just leads to the amazon database.

I am re-reading the whole Neil Gaiman's Sandman collection.
There is an episode where most notorious murderers gathers for a convention under the fake name of "The Cereal Convention".
One guy is murdered by the lot when they discover he is no real serial killer but the publisher of fanzine "PURE" that features the same subjects we know.
You may also see swastikas on the cover.

Shit, that's one of the best issues. Haven't read it in a while. Never noticed that "PURE" reference before.

In Italian it has been translated PURO, so I supposed in English sounds as Pure... but the whole thing is evidently referred to Sotos' work.
Let's remember that his problems sort of started from Uk and then reached America.

Andrew Vachss quoted that Sandman's issue, telling how great was seeing a serial killer groupie/aficionado ("freak" in the vacchsian language) dispatched by his own myths (the whole worthless interview appeared in a Chicago-based fanzine)

Does anyone own Kept? If so, what do you think about it?

the comparison with Comfort & Critique is quite obvious; massive use of collage-style, displaying dead/lost/kidnapped boys & girls' pictures in the very long first section of the book, a selection carefully planned and assembled of true crime articles (magazines, newspapers) directly from Sotos' collection,  then two sections of written rants about masturbation (where, how much, how long, how, why) mostly based about the personal chicagocentric Sotos' life. With the usual flashback focusing on the arrest...
In a sort of way, being the whole stuff a part of "Peter Sotos' pornography", knowing more (but i dont think the book gives a real insight about how relevant is masturbation for Sotos, we already knew a lot about this specific side of Sotos' ouvre with  Selfish Little and Comfort, and the style is the same) about the man's true obsession about (actual and metaphorical) handjobs could be relevant - but i think it's a nice idea for a fanzine (which was in a first place the real idea...a little magazine called SARAH, mostly featuring photos of dead girls), less interesting for a whole book

I don't have Comfort & Critique either. Out of Comfort & Critique, Kept and Show Adult which one did you personally like most, or at least which would you suggest first?
