1. Name the short-lived (I believe) Australian magazine on the Whitechapel murders edited by the late Julian Rosenfeld and a copy of the inaugural issue of this Down Under mag will shortly be winging its way to you. Australians are exempted from entering. Take that, Cobber.

Here's a clue for you all: It isn't a dump from a kangaroo.

2. What is the connection between the War of 1812 between Britain and the U.S. and the Jack the Ripper case? I wrote about it some years ago for Ripperologist magazine. Think water, think letters, knock twice and pray to Jesus. Good luck.

You could win a nice War of 1812 something. Stay tuned.

P.S. drstrange aka Dusty Miller, send me your snail mail address and I will send you the copy of I'm All Right, Jack by Alan Hackney.
Jackie Murphy on Facebook correctly replied to trivia question no. 1 that the Aussie Ripper mag was Ripperoo.

Swag going to her imminently. Meanwhile another poser for y'all:

"The Battle of Stepney" is usually known by another name. What is it?

First to get the answer wins this antique postcard mailed in 1911 plus another vintage card of my choosing.

Previous winners of RipperCon swag not eligible.

You know your thinking is upside down, GUT. Surely it was the Battle of the East End?

Jarvis Benson on the RipperCon Facebook page came up with the correct answer. The event is usually known as the Siege of Sidney Street.

Still need an answer to this one:

What is the connection between the War of 1812 between Britain and the U.S. and the Jack the Ripper case? I wrote about it some years ago for Ripperologist magazine. Think water, think letters, knock twice and pray to Jesus. Good luck.

Those who have previously won loot from RipperCon not allowed to enter.

Chris, re the marker of the inventor of the Ouija Board-- turns out the largest collection of "talking boards" is out here in a Denver home, AND the woman who named the Ouija Board is buried in Colorado.
