This is the perfectly preserved head of Diogo Alves, a serial killer from the 18th century. Alves would throw people off the Águas Livres Aqueduct in Lisbon, Portugal. Due to the area being a popular suicide jump site, nobody is sure how many people he truly killed.
During my signing today I overheard a guy start asking everyone if he could cut them in line without really waiting for their approval. “He must REALLY like me” I thought as I readied my hand around the pepper spray I keep holstered to my hip. As he rushed to the front of the line I noticed he bought four books. So naturally I married him. Thanks @CMPunk for being my biggest fan/supporter/sexy roommate for life. And thank you @XChadballX and @AnthonyAmor for being our officiant and witness respectively. - AJ
