Crime Library: Criminal Minds and Methods

Albert Fish


This feature story is taken primarily from the following sources: the New York Daily News, the New York Times, Harold Schechter's (Pocket Books, 1990) and Dr. Fredric Wertham's The Show of Violence (Doubleday, 1949) and Mel Heimer's (Pinnacle Books, 1971).

Other sources used were:

Martingale, Moira, St. Martin's Paperbacks. 1993.

Schechter, Harold, and David Everitt, The A-Z Encyclopedia of Serial Killers. Pocket Books. 1996.

The Crime Library particularly recommends Schecher's Deranged as the most comprehensive book on the subject of Albert Fish.
