The Stranger or The Outsider (L’Étranger) is a novel by Albert Camus published in 1942. Its theme and outlook are often cited as examples of existentialism, though Camus did not consider himself an existentialist; in fact, its content explores various philosophical schools of thought, including (most prominently and specifically) absurdism, as well as determinism, nihilism, naturalism, and stoicism.

Ted Bundy Updates. This is the book that presented the "banality of evil" Ted Bundy, as we have learned wore a mask, was a chameleon. Ann Rule didn't see it, nor did others, immediately. We know now that many serial killers are like Bundy: sociopaths, they can mimic reality, but not feel it, and they fool many people over lengths of time. No one should ever say "Why, he's so nice, it couldn't be him!" Ann Rule's book told us why, clearly and completely.
