          Richard Whittington Egan is becoming or has already become the J. D. Salinger of Ripperology.

            Except that millions of people bought Salinger's books and practically nobody bought RW-E's original book. And at 25 quid a pop I doubt that too many people will be buying its new incarnation.

              Hi Stephen

              You are correct about the numbers but then Ripperology is a "niche" market, isn't it, except perhaps for breakout authors such as Stephen Knight and Patricia Cornwell, the latter of course bringing a huge following with her before she wrote her book on Sickert. What I mean though is that RWE's much awaited book is becoming almost mythical just like Salinger's reputation became mythical.

              Best regards

                Tell you the truth Chris....I wonder how good the book will be if RWE is unaware of Message Board Ripperology and its perpetual improvement of case study.
                Mr. Rumbelow dropped the ball big time on D'Onston...and he's probably perused the boards from time to time....not sure about RWE, especially since it might not be how he depends on acquiring case data.

                  All the big players have dropped the ball big time but some still look on them as the untouchables and wont have a bad word said against them.

                      That's great, Lemon! I have my copy pre-ordered from amazon.com, but since I'm in the states I don't expect such luck. But I'm definitely looking forward to this book.

                      Yours truly,

                        The untouchables go to primary source material, rather than pilfer or get someone else to do it.

                        Their base understanding of the case far outweighs the new guard, whose errors are basic and repetitive.

                          Has Trevor already read W-E's new book? What balls has he dropped?

                          I will say that Don Rumbelow's latest book was a sad disappointment.

                            Well the untouchables make mistakes..plenty of them too.

                            And they dont have to rely on 2nd hand-me-down waiters to serve up their meals for them either, or polish their shoes, or scrape the *** off the heels, or defend them at every turn, or wax lyrically over their every word. Nor do they ask their minions to throw crap and pour scorn upon others constantly either....they know they dont have to.

                            Because they don't need all that back up.

                            What they need is revisiting from time to time.

                            And if some people don't like it..I recommend Richard Whittington Egan's other JTR book... with all the errors and wrong-uns in.

                            Or McCormick with his made up stories and fairytales

                            Or Farson and his made up rubbish too.

                            I'll willingly admit some of these people WERE giants... a long long time ago.

                            The truth is, they no longer are. Pioneers perhaps... giants and untouchables? No.

                            Comparison? Harold Larwood ISN'T the greatest fast bowler... he MAY HAVE BEEN at one time, but his efforts has been superceded by more in-depth, greater and more technically detailed bowlers. Thats just the way it is Monty.

                              Hello Tom,

                              Careful old chap... you'll get the back up of the field soldiers saying things like that.
