Marilyn: Don't Even Dream About Tomorrow

Elizabeth Taylor

Sex, Lies, Her Murder, And The Great Cover-Up

Darwin Porter

Blood Moon proudly announces the immediate availability of a revised new edition of its widely reviewed, award-winning classic about the murder of Marilyn Monroe.

As stated by its publisher, Danforth Prince, “This is an improved version of the most successful and notorious book we ever published. Intensely controversial, it’s the personal statement of a devoted and deeply respected Marilyn expert whom the media defined after its publication as “The Master of Guilty Pleasures, the Proust of Pop Culture, and the Goethe of Gossip,” Darwin Porter.”

“We were awakened to the fact that original, first-edition copies of this “hysterically controversial” classic were selling as collectors’ oddities for three or four times their original retail price. And despite the passage of time (the suppresion of evidence associated with her murder began almost 60 years ago), her associations with The Kennedys and the Mob are still hot and still shocking. Perhaps as a distraction from more recent scandals associated with Covid and election politics, we wanted new generations of classic movie fans to realize, perhaps for the first time, just how murky “the swamp” associated with her death really is.”

About the Author:

“Darwin Porter is the master of guilty pleasures. There is nothing like reading him for passing the hours. He is the Nietzsche of Naughtiness, the Goethe of Gossip, the Proust of Pop Culture. Porter knows all the nasty buzz anyone has ever heard whispered in dark bars, dim alleys, and confessional booths. And lovingly, precisely, and in as straightforward a manner as an oncoming train, his prose whacks you between the eyes with the greatest gossip since Kenneth Anger. Some would say better than Anger.” (as quoted from Alan W. Petrucelli’s THE ENTERTAINMENT REPORT at

Porter began his career writing about politics and the entertainment industry for Knight Newspapers and The Miami Herald. Today, he’s one of the most prolific biographers in the world. His portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, J. Edgar Hoover, Vivien Leigh, Laurence Olivier, Howard Hughes, John and Jackie Kennedy, Paul Newman, Merv Griffin, Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, and Michael Jackson have generated widespread reviews and animated radio and blogsite commentaries worldwide. Some of his biographies have been serialized to millions of readers in The Sunday Times of London and The Mail on Sunday.

Porter is also the well-known original author of many editions of The Frommer Guides, a respected travel guidebook series that’s among the most prominent and well-respected in the world.
