The Tupelo-Memphis Murders

The Elvis International Network site mentions a new book titled “The Tupelo-Memphis Murders” which is scheduled for publication in September-October as a limited edition print available only through online auction houses and fan clubs. Here is the text from the E.I.N. site: 'The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Study of Self-Destruction and Murder!' was the subject of considerable discussion and debate on underground message boards last year and its release is being eagerly awaited by many fans. Anonymously written as a novel, the plot is cleverly composed with none of its characters named, yet because of the events described and their locale, you know exactly who they are. In addition, the story can be read (or interpreted) on two levels: as a straightforward tale or as a resonant, reflective narrative embedded with higher level symbolic representations. Unlike 'Fairytale', another anonymously written book from the Elvis Underground, 'The Tupelo-Memphis Murders' is well written and stylish. It also has much more substance within its pages than the 700 page 'Fairytale'. Apart from its titular themes, 'The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Study of Self-Destruction and Murder!' contains: quite graphic descriptions of incest, the impact of drug cocktails, an assassination attempt in Memphis, the Mob & FBI stings, sinister "Men In Black", and details of a raft of the colourful conspiracy theories that dominate the Elvis underground. While many of the themes are familiar to Elvis fans, others are not and will surprise many. Inclusions like a passage from 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' test the reader's ability to think laterally and view the story on a symbolic level. While the book is at times unsettling and not for the squeamish, its dark, menacing themes and highly symbolic prose make it a most unusual and testing entry in the world of Elvis literature.
