About the Author

Steven F. Scouller is a filmmaker, broadcaster, photographer and writer specializing in alternative culture and true crime, in particular serial killer culture within modern society.

“For ‘Murderabilia and True Crime Collecting’, I wanted to adopt a documentary film style approach to the production of the book. The book would only work with interviews from the people at the centre of the subject matter, the killers themselves as well as vendors and collectors of Murderabilia. It was important to me to make sure the book would be visually stimulating".

“I enjoy dealing with challenging and controversial issues that reflect upon society. It is important to me to get all aspects and views of a particular topic and present them to the reader in a logical fashion so they can make their own minds up, based on as much accurate information as possible”.
