  • Victims Of Jack The Ripper Books * Pre-Rubenhold (Dusty Miller)

    By now, we should all be familiar with Rubernhold's claim that the victims haven't been covered, so I thought I'd start a list of pre Halle books on the subject.

    This one came out a whole year before Rubenhold's and seems to have slipped completely under the radar. looks worth tracking down.





    Ripper's Victims in Print : The Rhetoric of Portrayals Since 1929 - by Rebecca Frost (Paperback)















    The author explores various representations of five of the victims of Jack the Ripper (Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly), from Leonard Matters’ 1929 The Mystery of Jack the Ripper through books published in 2017, focusing on descriptions of the women as women rather than as victims. She discusses newspaper and inquest information about the crimes, then books chronologically: Matters’ book, Edwin T. Woodhall’s Jack the Ripper or When London Walked in Terror, William Stewart’s Jack the Ripper: A New Theory, Donald McCormick’s The Identity of Jack the Ripper, Tom Cullen’s Autumn of Terror, and Robin Odell’s Jack the Ripper in Fact and Fiction; the conspiracy theories of the 1970s in Michael Harrison’s Clarence: Was He Jack the Ripper?, Stephen Knight’s Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution, Frank Spiering’s Prince Jack: The True Story of Jack the Ripper, Dan Farson’s Jack the Ripper, and Richard Whittington-Eagan’s A Casebook on Jack the Ripper; and writing from the 1980s to the 21st century, including Martin Fido’s The Crimes, Death, and Detection of Jack the Ripper, Melvin Harris’ Jack the Ripper: The Bloody Truth, Martin Howells and Keith Skinner’s The Ripper Legacy: The Life and Death of Jack the Ripper, Terence Sharkey’s Jack the Ripper: 100 Years of Investigation, Peter Underwood’s Jack the Ripper: One Hundred Years of Mystery, Colin Wilson and Robin Odell’s Jack the Ripper: Summing Up and Verdict, Paul Begg’s Jack the Ripper: The Uncensored Facts, Jean Overton Fuller’s Sickert and the Ripper Crimes, Shirley Harrison’s The Diary of Jack the Ripper, Paul Harrison’s Jack the Ripper: The Mystery Solved, Bob Hinton’s Hell….The Jack the Ripper Mystery, John Wilding’s Jack the Ripper: Revealed, William Beade’s Jack the Ripper: Anatomy of a Myth, Philip Sugden’s The Complete History of Jack the Ripper, R. Michael Gordon’s Alias Jack the Ripper: Beyond the Usual Whitechapel Suspects, Paul Begg’s Jack the Ripper: The Facts and Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History, Paul Roland’s The Crimes of Jack the Ripper, M.J. Trow’s Jack the Ripper: Quest for a Killer, and Bruce Robinson’s They All Love Jack. She also describes texts that use modern technological approaches to the crimes, such as Patricia Cornwell’s Portrait of a Killer and Russell Edwards’ Naming the Ripper, which rely on DNA evidence, and more recent texts that go beyond the usual narrative, such as John Morris’ Jack the Ripper: The Hand of a Woman--The Compelling New Account, Dane Ladwig’s Dr. H.H. Holmes & the Whitechapel Ripper, and David Monaghan and Nigel Cawthorne’s Jack the Ripper’s Secret Confession: The Hidden Testimony of Britain’s First Ser

                    When I see words like 'rhetoric' and 'narrative' I know I'm not in Kansas any more.

                      I reviewed the book for Ripperologist. It's not so much about the victims as how the author sees them being represented by Ripper writers. My view was that the author looked for negative things to say and did not consider the information available to writers in different decades.

                        Here's the last work from Neal Shelden.
                        'Work' because it was only available on Kindle.

                          >>I reviewed the book for Ripperologist<<

                          I thought you had. Copies are going for as much as $100 U.S.. So I guess I won't be reading it.

                              The author created an online forum on the subject:

                              https://sistersoftheabyss.com

                              Sadly, apart from her own contributions and those of a few Ripperologists, it never really took off.
