PICTURE STORY: Real horror show

 The Big Issue UK 25 October 2019

A liver riddled with metastatic melanoma. A two-headed calf caught forever with its twin chins raised to suckle. The hammer that serial killer John Robinson likely used to smash the skulls of eight women. These real horrors and more lurk in ordinary people’s homes. Paul Gambino’s book Morbid Curiosities lifts the lid on these unnerving collections. (508 Words) - By Laura Kelly
