Added DiffLines:

* In Creator/KimNewman's Literature/DiogenesClub story "Another Fish Story", Manson's attempt to summon the apocalypse is foiled by the VillainProtagonist Derek Leech (who is also planning to bring about an apocalypse and doesn't want anybody else getting in first).
* In ''Literature/TheArtOfArrowCutting'' by Creator/StephenDedman, one of the supporting characters is the son of a former Family member who claimed that Manson himself was his father.
* The short story "Amendment" by Creator/StephenDedman is set in an AlternateHistory where the cultural conversation surrounding "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms" is different, and shows how the difference affects the lives of several historical figures, including Manson.

** Manson also appears in the final two episodes of ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCult'' as a hallucination of the season's BigBad Kai Anderson (who is a cult leader himself). He explicitly denies being a SpiritAdvisor because he's still alive in the California State Prison. [[FunnyAneurysmMoment The real-world Manson died a five days after the finale aired.]]

* In the ''Literature/NewDealCoalitionRetained'' timeline, Manson never organizes his "family" and sends them on their killing spree. Instead, he tries (and fails) to personally assassinate Martin Luther King Jr., and ends up in prison for it.

'''Charles Milles Manson''' (né Maddox, November 12, 1934-November 19, 2017) was an American criminal who in 1968, after having spent half his life to date in prison and living in a hippie commune, befriended Music/DennisWilson and listened to Music/TheBeatles' ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum''. He [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory heard hidden messages]] on the album (or claimed to, at any rate) about a race war that would break out the following year, and got along with his mates, from then on known as the "Manson Family", to provoke said war - by inspiring the Family to commit (he never got his hands dirty himself) several brutal murders (including Creator/RomanPolanski's pregnant wife, Sharon Tate), and leaving the message "Helter Skelter" (the name of a song on ''The White Album'') [[CouldntFindAPen written in blood]] on the walls. He was arrested in December 1969, and three years later his death penalty was commuted [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People_v._Anderson for technical reasons unrelated to his case]] to a life sentence. He remained in prison since then (largely in solitary confinement, for his own safety) and died in 2017.
