The Mysterious Bookshop

In anticipation of Otto's newest Big Book, The Big Book of Jack the Ripper, the folks
at Ripperologist Magazine asked the editor a few questions about his forthcoming anthology.


The book, which will be published in October, includes archival accounts of the murders as well as highlights from the long tradition of fictional stories that they inspired. It also contains several stories, never before published, by authors such as Lyndsay Faye, Anne Perry, and Stephen Hunter.

Check out the interview here to learn more (it starts on page 95).

Note: Ripperologist is a magazine dedicated entirely to the study of Jack the Ripper. It is published every two months, and is free to read online. You can sign up for their mailing list at
