Man, this book pushed all the right buttons when I was a kid. Gruesome and adult enough to delight a morbid child, but not so nasty as to be inappropriate or truly frightening. I still vividly remember the illustrations and explanations of torture methods, and the gleeful rogues' gallery of the wickedest people in history (Vlad the Impaler, Aleister Crowley, Countess Bathory, Lizzy Borden). Good, clean, wholesome--yet sick and depraved-- fun.
