  • WENN -- Former child star Corey Feldman has vowed to write a book, one that will name the people he says abused him.

    He tells Britain's The Sun, "When I was 14 and 15,things were happening to me. These older men were leching around like vultures. It was basically me laying there pretending I was asleep and them going about their business."

    Feldman says he hopes the book will spare others abuse. "I will write a book -- I will put all the information forward. There are people who have got away with it for so long they think they are above the law -- that's got to stop."

    That's not to say that Feldman is unaware of the dangers he could put himself -- or his family -- in by writing such an exposée. It's a risk he took when he first broached the subject during an interview on ABC last year, in which he discussed the death of his longtime friend and fellow child star Corey Haim. "I stood up and said there is a bigger problem, that I'd lost Corey and that I didn't want to see any more kids lost to these sick perverts," he told the Daily Mail.

    Feldman was thrust into the limelight at 3 years old, when he starred in a McDonald's commercial, and he appeared in a string of television shows and films before his teenage years.
