  • Ripperologist Offer

    Hello all

    Ripperologist is looking for new subscribers, and I am willing to send a sample copy to anyone who is interested. The journal after publishing for a decade as a print magazine has switched solely to electronic publishing. Once a month we email a full color copy of the issue to subscribers. Rip 74 came out on Christmas Eve and I would like to send a copy to anyone who would like one. It is a large PDF file of 89 pages of text and pictures so you have to have a mailbox large enough to receive. Most of our issues are about this size. Anyone interested, feel free to PM your email address to me.

    For more information on our current and past issues go to:

              I second Tim's motion....and if the nice folks at The Rip decide to follow Tim's idea....may I suggest that any issue from August up to December be sent?

              No special reason other than some of the articles should be kept "afloat"....because they are "fresh" in the minds of people on all of the sites....

              Thank you.

                Hi Chris

                Thanks for the offer

                I spoke to Adam just yesterday about subscription info since my wife has given me the for both this and Ripper Notes for Xmas.(Not that she has an iron hand, but we've got a 5 month old son) Long time coming.

                Now all I got to do is figure out this PayPal thing...

                Happy New Year Everybody!

                  Hi JM

                  Received your request for the free copy and I have now sent it. I hope you enjoy it. Glad to know you are becoming a subscriber as well. I think you will find Paypal easy enough to use.

                  Happy New Year to you and everyone.

                      Hi all

                      Even better than my earlier offer to email a free, sample issue of Ripperologist to anyone who is interested, I am pleased to say that my colleague, Ripper author and East End expert Adam Wood, the technical genius behind the Rip, has redesigned our website and is offering three recent issues for you to download, free, gratis, and with the blessings of the staff of Ripperologist. Judge our magazine for yourself. I am sure many of you will wish to subscribe. Just go to http://www.ripperologist.info to peruse sample articles or download an issue or two.

                      As an aside, I have been having a behind the scenes battle with Mr. Dan Norder, whom as many you will know is editor of the rival magazine Ripper Notes. Mr. Norder insists on calling our publication a "newsletter" on his website, and I asked him to correct that mischaracterization, which he was unwilling to do. We will let our current subscribers and those who wish to download one, two, or three of the recent issues whether we are a "newsletter" as Mr. Norder says or a fully fledged monthly magazine sent by email PDF file. We are a journal with footnoted articles examining all aspects of the Ripper case plus news and reviews of books, movies, and websites that have a bearing on the Whitechapel murders, other true crime, and East End history.

                      Best regards

                        Chris,

                        More hatin' on Dan Norder. Ugh. And during a promo! Anyway, I'm glad to see the site is up. I just got done flipping through it. A couple of thoughts/observations/questions:

                        You have Eduardo Zinna as an editor. Didn't he retire from Rip? Also, on the Casebook page you link to, Eduardo is listed as 'Executive Editor' and the 'Subscribe Now!' function did not work, at least for me, and I tried it twice. You'll want to check that out. Also, it says your page count per issue averages 60-80. Isn't it more than that now?
                        On your back issue info page you intimate that there's no back issues from the print era (1-61) available to purchase. Is that correct? I realized recently that, somehow, I'm one issue short of a complete collection. I believe I HAD the issue, but it's nowhere to be found now. It's possible I only THOUGHT I had it. I can't think of the number offhand, but it has a black and white photo of a woman's face on the cover. I think it's Louise Brooks. I need to find me a copy of that issue!

                        Yours truly,

                        Tom Wescott

                          A newsletter?? Hmmm... to me a newsletter would be at most, 9-10 pages tops. The issues of Ripperologist I've seen have had 75-85+pages and is in a magazine format. Looks like an e-magazine or e-journal to me. The articles I've been able to read have been of good quality and informative. It's definitely worth a try for anyone who is not a subscriber.

                          It's just a different way of doing things.

                            Hi Debbie

                            Thank you for your opinion on the matter, that our publication is "an e-magazine or e-journal" rather than a newsletter as Mr. Norder asserts.

                              Hi Tom

                              Tom, I could have told you some time ago that you were one issue short of a full collection.

                              Thanks for pointing out the glitches on the website. Actually, Eduardo has been doing some work for us but I don't know if he will be coming back on board in an official capacity. He does still have involvement with the mag and we are grateful for what he is doing for us, behind the scenes.

                              Adam can confirm whether we can supply print issues and if so which ones. The Louise Brooks issue that you mention you might be missing was Ripperologist No. 30, August 2000. I might have an extra copy of it if Adam cannot come up with it for you. I'll let you know.
