Mike Hudson is founding editor of the Niagara Falls Reporter, a feisty independent weekly now entering its tenth year of publication. He is the author of DIARY OF A PUNK, about his youth as lead singer of legendary Cleveland punk band the Pagans, and MOB BOSS, the first full-length biography of Stefano Magaddino, who ruled the Buffalo mob from his fortress-like funeral parlor in Niagara Falls. A collection of Hudson's spoken word recordings was released in 1998 on the Overground label as ALL THE WRONG PEOPLE ARE DYING. Hudson's upcoming collection of fiction and nonfiction is titled JETSAM.Review:
A true-crime collection of yarns about mobsters, murder and mayhem that's a hellish postcard from the honeymoon capital. --John Petkovic, Cleveland Plain Dealer
The most shocking, scary and sinister episodes in the history of the cataract city. It's like reading a localized version of Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon. We get to meet Billy Shrubsall, the class valedictorian who bludgeoned his mother to death with a baseball bat on the eve of graduation in 1988. It turns out that act was just one example of a violent nature that would eventually put him behind bars in Canada. --Artvoice, Buffalo
Mike Hudson had some different stories to tell. The one about the dashing lawyer beaten to a bloody mess with, among other things, a can opener. The one about a mob boss who conveniently owned a funeral parlor. The one about the school valedictorian who beat his mother to death with a baseball bat the night before his graduation, then took on a new identity as a serial rapist in Nova Scotia. --John Law, Niagara Falls (Ont.)
