Not Safe For Work, At All
Admit it — you’re sick.
You laugh at dead baby jokes, you like the goriest horror flicks, and you rubberneck at accident sites. How do I know this? Well, you did click on this link. And while you might be too embarrassed to indulge your gruesome nature out in the harsh real world, you can certainly get your kicks from a little digital rubbernecking. That’s what I do.
- The Asylum Eclectica
Horrors, oddities, and the infamous “Morbid Fact du Jour!” mailing list.
- Dark Side of the Net
A bulging coffin of links to every grim and Gothic site on the Web.
Just as horrid (and unsafe for work) as the name implies.
Crime & Punishment
- Crime Library
Detailed articles and stories on infamous crimes, both past and present—my go-to source when I need to look up a specific crime.
A daily case study of a historical execution.
- The Casebook of Jack the Ripper
All Saucy Jack, all the time. Truly a site from Hell (sorry, couldn’t resist).
- The Official Site of the Villisca Axe Murders
A resource devoted to the still-unsolved 1912 crime that wiped out eight people—six of them children—in a single night. One of Midwestern America’s most haunting and mysterious crimes.
Law Enforcement Databases
- The Doe Network
A database of unsolved disappearances and unidentified bodies that brings out the inner investigator. Spend some time here, and you might even solve a mystery.
Shipwrecks (and Titanica)
- Encyclopedia Titanica
Everything you ever wanted to know about the Titanic disaster, plus a lively message board.
- Titanic Inquiry Project
All—yes, all—of the transcripts from both British and American disaster inquiries, available online for free. (And I’m not just plugging it because I made the layout!)
