9781939905000: Tales of Jack the Ripper
View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

1888: A killer stalks the streets of London's Whitechapel district, brutally--some would say ritualistically--murdering women. With each slaying, the killer grows bolder, his crimes more extreme. So far, there have been five victims (that we know of): Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly.

The story of Jack the Ripper captured lurid headlines and the public's imagination, and the first fictionalization of the Ripper killings, John Francis Brewer's The Curse Upon Mitre Square appeared in October of 1888, mere weeks after the discovery of Jack's first victim. Since then, hundreds of stories have been written about Bloody Jack, his victims, and his legacy. Authors ranging from Marie Belloc Lowndes to Robert Bloch; from Harlan Ellison to Maureen Johnson; from Roger Zelazny to Alan Moore have added their own tales to the Ripper myth. Now, as we arrive at the quasquicentennial of the murders, we bring you a few tales more.

From the editor who brought you The Book of Cthulhu comes Tales of Jack the Ripper, featuring new fiction by many of today's darkest dreamers, including Laird Barron, Walter Greatshell, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Ed Kurtz, Joseph S. Pulver Sr., Stanley C. Sargent, E. Catherine Tobler, and many more.

About the Author:

ROSS E. LOCKHART is an author, anthologist, and freelance editor. A lifelong fan of supernatural, fantastic, speculative, and weird fiction, Lockhart is a veteran of small-press publishing, having edited scores of well-regarded novels of horror, fantasy, and science fiction.

Lockhart edited the acclaimed Lovecraftian anthologies The Book of Cthulhu I and II and Tales of Jack the Ripper (Word Horde). He is the author of the rock-and-roll novel Chick Bassist (Lazy Fascist Press). Lockhart lives in an old church in Petaluma, California, with his wife Jennifer, hundreds of books, and Elinor Phantom, a Shih Tzu moonlighting as his editorial assistant.

Review:

"Tales of Jack the Ripper manages to walk that fine line between entertainment and exploitation with real finesse. It's a gripping group of stories about one of our most enduring mysteries, and well worth your time." -FEARnet.com

"There is a definite 'weird tale' edge to many of the stories (and poems) in the anthology, which in this reader's opinion is a GREAT thing. It might even be expected from Lockhart, who also brought you The Book of Cthulhu and its follow-up, The Book of Cthulhu 2. This doesn't mean you can pigeonhole Tales of Jack the Ripper. [...] You need to get up off your lazy duff and buy this collection." -Shock Totem

"...there are enough original and inventive approaches to this most bedeviling of true-crime mysteries to suggest that Jack the Ripper and the Whitechapel Murders of 1888 will continue to inspire imaginative speculations for some time to come." -Stefan Dziemianowicz, Locus

"Tales of Jack the Ripper marks a strong debut for Word Horde. Lockhart, in usual fashion, has managed to put together a strong, multifaceted anthology that explores the Ripper legend at length. If this book is indicative of what's to be expected from his new press, than readers have much to look forward to." -The Arkham Digest

"...there's enough variation of theme and style here to interest almost any crime or horror reader..." -The Big Click

"Readers interested in Jack the Ripper will love this anthology. Horror fans in general should be quite pleased." -Tangent
 
"The bottom line is these are all excellent stories, all about Jack." -Hellnotes
