'Penzler has dug deep in producing Jack the Ripper, a carefully chosen 1000 pages of fascinating Ripperama ... Not meant for quick absorption, but dipping in and out is thoroughly recommended' * The Times * 'This is far more than a re-tread of the known facts ... Otto has assembled a truly stellar cast of contributors ... The perfect nugget nestling at the heart of this mammoth compendium, however, is the chance to read Marie Belloc Lowndes' influential The Lodger in both forms' * Shots Magazine * 'Fascinating and thought-provoking. Not a stone is left unturned in this vast exploration of all the horrors that Jack the Ripper committed' * The Bookbag *
