Fellow Ripper enthusiasts and scholars....for those of you who may not know, there's another Ripper website out here in the ether... now in its 11th year. JTRForums ( Jack The Ripper Forums). com features some of the leading Ripperologists of this and of all time, who generously share their research with the community and world. Almost all the books Loretta sells are listed and many have been discussed thoroughly. Researchers such as Debra Arif, Robert Clack, Wolf Vanderlinden, Paul Begg, Martin Fido, Neil Bell, and Tom Wescott appear regularly, sharing their finds with one and all. Permit me to extend this invitation to you hoping you'll stop in and give the Forums a look. To register, simply email me at Thanks for your time. Howard

I have received the following inquiry from Jim Woodard (Maryland, USA) : I have searched the internet trying to find The Criminologist magazine of November 1970 containing the article "Jack the Ripper- A Solution by Thomas Stowell. Having had no luck at all in locating this magazine, I was wondering if you knew if a reprint of this article is available from a different source. > Thanks, Jim Woodard. If anyone is able to help Jim please contact me either via the website, or at : Thank you. Loretta

My definitive scholarly 502-page True Crime book 'Various Matters Forensic: The Thames Torso Murders' is currently listed as a Creative Project on the Crowd-funding platform website 'Pozible', in order to raise money via pledges to get me to London to engage a True crime agent and a True Crime publisher. Anyone who is interested in True Crime in general, or these cases in particular, may care to view the project page, and an accompanying video, at: or by 'googling' the words 'Various Matters Forensic' or my nom de plume 'Stephen Gouriet Ryan'. If you know anyone else who might be interested, I'd be grateful if you would be kind enough to tell them about its existence...

FROM COTTON TO CHAPMAN The author of a popular book on Victorian poisoner Mary Ann Cotton has turned his hand to an even more infamous murderer - Jack the Ripper. Simon Webb, 50, has written Severin: A Tale of Jack the Ripper, a page-turning novel that points the finger at George Chapman as a possible Ripper suspect. 'Chapman was hanged in 1903 for murdering a girl called Maud Marsh,' says Simon, who lives near Durham. 'Maud went to live with Chapman above his pub in London. There he poisoned her, but he'd already got away with two other poisonings.' During Chapman's trial, Frederick Abberline, an important detective on the Ripper case, became convinced that Chapman was the man he had been hunting back in 1888. 'The novel recounts what happens when Chapman confesses his crimes to a priest - it isn't for the faint-hearted,' says Simon. Severin: A Tale of Jack the Ripper is available as a Kindle download, price 1.96.

Following on from the popularity of my Jack the Ripper talks and walks, I have spent the summer researching a number of new talks and walks in London. I now have a portfolio of 17 walks most of which can be delivered as a talk. There's also one talk, about The Titanic, which doesn't really lend itself to being a walk! Here's a list of my talk subjects. Let me know if you would like to book a talk.
