  1. This sounds like a fascinating talk on Jack the Ripper which I would attend except for living in Australia.

    However, I am the author of a book on the subject which may be of interest to readers of your blog and perhaps to those attending this talk.

    'Jack the Ripper and Black Magic: Victorian Conspiracy Theories, Secret Societies and the Supernatural Mystique of the Whitechapel Murders', is the first comprehensive study made of this aspect of the unsolved Ripper case. It is due for release in July 2011 and features a foreword by British author Stewart P. Evans.

    Further details can be found at my publisher's site for those interested.


    With my very best wishes to Ms. Scholz and Mr. Warwick for an enjoyable and informative evening on Jack the Ripper and the far reaching historical events of East End London during 1888.
