True Crime, Violence, & Intrigue




The Garbage People: Story of Charles Manson

John Gilmore, Ron Kenner (co-author/editing)Omega Press, & reprinted abroad, 1970 + (early hardbound, softcover, Spanish edition) out of print; 1995, Amuck Press, later editions.

Ron Kenner provided editing, rewriting, polishing for John Gilmore’s original manuscript; Ron worked in additional information from the trial transcripts, and provided some interview and other materials for the first edition. He has not been involved in later editions, though these rely heavily on the earlier material. All review comments that follow on this site are to the first edition, published in the U.S. and abroad.                 

“An insight readers will not find elsewhere…. a fine job…. Gilmore and Kenner have penetrated the mystery of how and why the nearly incomprehensible murder of Sharon Tate and six others came about.”

              William Farr, Los Angeles Times,
              President, Los Angeles Press Club

“I am overwhelmed by the material amassed, by the demonic powers it massively exposes, and by the sense of all the effort that went into its craftsmanlike synthesis.”

              Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, Dean of Humanities,
              Pennsylvania State University
