Humpty Dumpty??


Hmm is it possible that the book i have is different to others ? "Humpty-Dumpty" is the name of a chapter in the book, mysterious :shock:

Not different from my copy. HUMPTY DUMPTY is the name of the first chapter of Part III of RIPPER.

Always wondered where Tautriadelta got the name that he uses here - it's the title of the first chapter of Part II.

Question guv'nor..
Will the discovery of who Jack the Ripper was, or may have been if the naysayers sabre rattle anymore, make a change to any parts of Ripper, to update it when you get around to going digital on the boys

d.t. No. I'll see where things are at when I return to that novel, but "the discovery" will never be certain, just the best so far. If the science holds up.

No wonder you are my favorite Sladist Mbwun, you are partially right, indeed it is a name of chapter, but Slade really got me invested in the Ripper crimes(back in 94) and started using it the more my main suspect (D'onston) seemed more and more viable( with all the books I had purchased...my favorite being The True face of Jack..by Melvin Harris), and since it was a pen-name he had used to writein an occult journal back then...well it's even my email ^^ Tautriadelta_88@hotmail.com, hahaha
because of Slade I had enrolled in criminology for school but quit to play music for 10 years, but now (still his fault haha) I have a big library of books on all real life serial killers...so many different ones it's insane, and yes..sometimes when I read on on the bus...well the person sitting next to me kinda changes places..it's sad..and funny)

but as Dreab stated, Slade's novels are outstanding and I can say I have read them many times over (Ripper my favorite..read like 20X)
and everytime I re-read one new things seem to pop up...
I'm still skeptical on this DNA, and as Slade mentionned it's still in a gray area...

I'm honoured!

I'm also skeptical of the DNA. Too much could have happened to the garment over the years to trust whatever 'evidence' might be on it.

I completely agree with you Mb, glad to see we're on the same page, even in today's laboratories, extreme care must be taken so samples are not cobtaminated...and in a 100 years my experience tells me that this item was handled by many hands....

Here's one of several recent articles that cast doubt on the "proof" of the Ripper's identity.

Question about Ripper... it's been years since I read this book, but was thinking about it recently, and hopefully one of y'all can help...

If I'm not mistaken (and there's definitely a distinct possibility that I am!) isn't there a discussion of the seven (I think) kinds of mysteries while they're on the island? I could be making this up, since it's been quite a few years, but does anyone remember this?

I've looked for copies of the book at the library and at used bookstores around, but can't find a copy.

Can anybody help?

It is in a locked room mystery by John Dickson Carr, but cannot remember which..
Would be on a post around the main forum somewhere..

Oh and hello
