Soon (I hope) I'll be posting a review of an EBook set during the Victorian Era. School, work, etc. have ramped up with a vengeance, so I'm barely treading water trying to keep up.

This is the season where a lot of exhibits are traveling (like Whistler here in Tulsa at the Philbrook). Another popular exhibit includes many other 19th Century painters, such as Walter Sickert. With the "popularity" of Cornwell's book, now everyone who writes about Sickert has to mention the "theory" of him being Jack. It's sad that this slander dogs an artist who would much rather be remembered as slightly eccentric and a worthy student of Whistler rather than as Cornwell's show-pony. And until she (or anyone else) puts a knife in his hand and proves he was the killer, all it does is smear the reputation of an important figure of Victorian Art.
