"The Last Pentacle of the Sun is the first collection of writings in support of the West Memphis Three. Collected in the book are dark fiction by some of the world's best, case-related essays by observers and participants, lyrics by Metallica, and illustrations by Clive Barker."--Jacket.
"On May 5, 1993, in West Memphis, Arkansas, three eight-year-old boys were brutally murdered. They were found bound ankle to wrist with their own shoelaces, severely beaten, and dumped in a nearby stream." "A month later, detectives finally made three arrests: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley Jr - teenagers who just didn't fit in: they wore black, listened to heavy metal music, and read horror novels. Despite the lack of evidence, the three young misfits were convicted. Jessie Misskelley Jr and Jason Baldwin are in prison for life, while Damien Echols, considered the "ring leader," is on death row, awaiting lethal injection."
