Hi Simon,

Some friends on Facebook let me know about your book. I bought the kindle edition and I have read it. You have written a good book. I am happy to see a new one that discusses the possibility that Thompson was the Ripper. Your book shows original research and it is very well written. Your knowledge of the poetic influences upon Thompson is very strong. Well done and I wish you well with it all. I was happy to give it four stars, (I would have given it five but, you are the competition. If you are on Facebook, I recommend you join, Ripperology books and more. It a great group for promoting new books on the Ripper and the Admin is very nice.

All the best,
Richard

Thanks Richard - that's very gracious. As T.S. Eliot said, 'there is no competition'. There's a link to my Facebook from my website: http://tinyurl.com/lpdirect. Are you working on anything at the moment?
