Thanks to AC for the heads up about the release of the updated version of "The Manson File" by Nikolas Schreck under a new title "The Manson File-Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman."
Here are a few tidbits from the new book which I found interesting.
"An analysis of Manson’s musical career shows that he was never the spurned wanna-be Beatle of Bugliosi’s ”Helter Skelter” fantasy but a widely admired darling of such rock industry mentors as his close friends Terry Melcher and Dennis Wilson. Wilson’s crucial role in the events leading up to the Hinman-Tate-LaBianca murders is exposed, as are the exact circumstances which led to Manson’s sudden fall from grace in the Summer of ’69 - just when he was poised for Beach Boys-backed superstardom."
"The drug robbery spree instigated by Charles ”Tex” Watson against his criminal rivals is seen to differ radically from the hippie horror story of random murder and race war presented in court and peddled to the public ever since.
Schreck draws on police evidence and interrogations suppressed during Manson’s trial to unmask the ”Helter Skelter” legend as one of the twentieth century’s most successful cover-ups."
"Jay Sebring’s ”hairdresser to the stars” celebrity is uncovered as a front for organized crime activity rooted in JFK’s White House, Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack, and the Mafia’s brutal grip on American show business."
Below is the link to Shreck's website. The book appears to be in another language. There is no mention of where to purchase it either. There is a "shop" button at his site which does not work.
I checked Amazon but found nothing about the re-released version.
