When this best-selling autobiography was originally released, readers were shocked: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell was the darkest, funniest, most controversial, and best-selling rock book of its time—and it became the template, both visually and narratively, for almost every rock book since. Marilyn Manson is not just a music icon, it turned out, but one of the best storytellers of his generation. Written with bestselling author Neil Strauss, beautifully designed with dozens of exclusive photographs, and modeled on Dante's Inferno, this edition of The Long Hard Road Out of Hell features a bonus chapter not in the hardcover. In the shocking and candid memoir, Manson takes readers from backstage to emergency rooms to jail cells, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Along the way, you'll hear what happens to fans—and celebrities—who dare to venture backstage with the one of the world's most dangerous rock stars. In the words of Elle magazine, the book "makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome in comparison."

Religion has always played a special role in the life of the United States. This has been true at Puritan times and it is still true today. Apocalypse Soon? charts the sometimes open, sometimes hidden connections between US popular culture and religion. The book's essays offer a closer look on a wide variety of cultural phenomena that reach from Puritan millennialism to George Bush's appeal to the Christian right, from Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar to the Christian metal band Saviour Machine, and from TV series like Family First, Dead Like Me, and Lost, to Christian diet and chastity programs.

In Dissecting Marilyn Manson, author Gavin Baddeley performs a cultural autopsy upon Manson, examining the seminal influences and psychotic sources that have gone into making him the Frankenstein monster that he is today. With its heavily visual approach, the text and pictures create the impression of a pathological scrapbook, emphasising the idea of the performer being put under the knife, exploring the Manson mythos in an irreverent but authoritative manner. Each chapter exposes one gruesome angle after another, gradually revealing just what makes Marilyn Manson tick and why so many find him so compelling. Dissecting Marilyn Manson offers the legion of dedicated Manson fans an alternative look into his macabre and twisted world. This revised and updated edition continues dissecting up to the present day, analysing recent developments in Manson’s professional and private life, including his recent high-profile court case, marriage to fetish model Dita Von Teese, and creative forays into the worlds of art and film.

Spiritual fear is common place in mainstream religious thought. The fear of sin, hell, or even the Devil himself. But have you ever wondered, questioned, or doubted the very foundations upon which you stand? In this rapidly changing world, people are waking up from their spiritual slumber to find that much more lies beyond the borders of mainstream religious thought. Veiled in the guise of evil sin, and hoarded by the very opponents of darkness, knowledge and spiritual refinement lie just beyond the horizon of perception. As creatures of creation it is our birthright to question, to seek, and to recreate the world around us each day as we slowly remember who we truly are. The endless cycles of sin and forgiveness are holes in the hull of salvation that may sink a floundering ship. For many, as that ship sinks on one side of the fence, a flaming Phoenix will rise from the ashes on the other; we only need to face our fears of the unknown. This is the story of such a journey, and rebirth.

Music in Youth Culture examines the fantasies of post-Oedipal youth cultures as displayed on the landscape of popular music from a post-Lacanian perspective. Jan Jagodzinski, an expert on Lacan, psychoanalysis, and education's relationship to media, maintains that a new set of signifiers is required to grasp the sliding signification of contemporary 'youth'. He discusses topics such as the figurality of noise, the perversions of the music scene by boyz/bois/boys and the hysterization of it by gurlz/girls/grrrls. Music in Youth Culture also examines the postmodern 'fan (addict)', techno music, and pop music icons. Jagodzinski raises the Lacanian question of 'an ethics of the Real' and asks educators to re-examine 'youth' culture.

If he had one single clue that every single truth he held dear to his heart was about to be dismantled. In one single day, a belief system that took decades to refine would be mangled beyond any recognition. However, all was not lost as into his life comes a beautiful woman, far beyond his hopes and dreams, an FBI agent with an incredible secret. They join forces as they tumble down a rabbit hole filled with violence, insanity, and the ancient question of humanity, why are we here. Even in the middle of this tornado, two hearts find each other and ignite a powerful love that just might possibly keep them alive!
