Meet the strangest people who ever lived!
Read all about:
- the notorious love affairs of midgets
- the strange sex lives of Siamese twins
- the dwarf clown's wife whose feet grew directly from her body
- the mule-faced woman whose son became her manager
- the unusual amours of Jolly Daisy, the fat woman
- the famous pinhead who inspired Verdi's Rigoletto
- the tragedy of Betty Lou Williams and her parasitic twin
- the midget, only 34 inches tall, who was happily married to a 264-pound wife
- the human torso who could sew, crochet, and type
- and bizarre accounts of normal humans turned into freaks--either voluntarily or by evil design!
Originally printed in a small edition and withdrawn by the publisher after one month, this book (out of print for nearly 20 years), is brought back to eye-popping life with many new photos. Daniel P. Mannix, now enjoying a cult revival, is the author of noir classics such as Those About to Die, The History of Torture, The Hell-fire Club, Memoirs of a Sword Swallower, The Beast (the first biography of Aleister Crowley to enjoy wide readership), and many others. A former sword-swallower, fire-eater, fakir and world traveler, Mr. Mannix still lives on the family farm with his falcon, miniature horses and reptile collection.

Read information about the authorDaniel Pratt Mannix IV was best known as an American author and journalist. His life was remarkably different from other writers of his generation. His career included times as a side show performer, magician, trainer of eagles and film maker.
The Grest Zadma was a stage name Mannix used as a magician. He also entertained as a sword swallower and fire eater in a traveling carnival sideshow. Magazine articles about these experiences, co-written with his wife, became very popular in 1944 and 1945.
As an author Mannix covered a wide variety of subject matter. His more than 25 books ranged from fictional animal stories for children, the natural history of animals, and adventurous accounts about hunting big game to sensational adult non-fiction topics such as a biography of the occultist Aleister Crowley, sympathetic accounts of carnival performers and sideshow freaks, and works describing, among other things, the Hellfire Club, the Atlantic slave trade, the history of torture, and the Roman games. His output of essays and articles was extensive.
