"The Meanest Man In America" The Life and Crimes of Serial Killer Donald Henry Gaskins: A True Story of Rape, Cannibalism, and Murder
This is a true crime short, meant to be read in one sitting.
It is plausible that Donald Henry Gaskins was born a psychopath, it may also be said that his life experiences helped turn him into a sociopath. The “meanest man in America” earned the title of the most prolific serial killer in South Carolina’s history. Although it was never confirmed, Gaskins claimed to have murdered over 100 people, with some reports as high as 181. He tortured, killed, and occasionally ate his victims until his final arrest in 1975 (yes, he had been arrested numerous times). Gaskins was ultimately executed, not for his many, many murders outside prison, but for killing a prisoner on death row while Gaskins himself was serving consecutive life sentences. In his autobiography, Final Truth: The Autobiography of a Serial Killer, which currently has less than 25 copies available on Amazon and none for less than $100, Gaskins said, “I have walked the same path as God, by taking lives and making others afraid, I became God's equal.” Whether you believe his side of the story or not, the tale of Donald Henry Gaskins is one that should not be forgotten.

I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
