Cool News
I bought a book today off EBay. It was London Correspondence: Jack the Ripper and the Irish Press. Little did I know that I was buying it from the author Alan Sharp! Actually, it's through the company Ash Press. Anyway, I'm getting my very own signed copy from a Ripper author. Ahhh. What a good day. Be sure to check out the link to his site for his book and more Ripper merchandise through Amazon, as well as information on the Ripper including a timeline and other Victorian murders. I'm looking into the general idea of examining contemporary Victorian fiction for allusions to Jack, instead of just starting with Lowndes' The Lodger as most do. Also, contemporary newspapers give a good flavor for where public sentiment stood regarding Jack the Ripper, so Mr. Sharp's book will prove invaluable. It's been a good week. Getting in touch with Dr. Winn who is a Jack the Ripper buff and getting a signed book on Saucy Jack. Excuse me while I gloat.
