isn't there some kind of book out there called the diary of jack the ripper by or about someone named Carnac? supposed to be non fiction?

my daughter picked it up a few years ago and I glanced at it briefly and saw there was a forward by Paul Begg (or maybe Rumbelow)? It seemed to be written in an old fashioned writing style. Anyway we lost it and I haven't been able to find it.

does anyone know anything about this?

There's 'The Diary Of Jack The Ripper' by Shirley Harrison, foreword by Prof David Canter. Chapter headings are printed in an old-fashioned cursive script. There is also a facsimile of the Diary itself, great if you've got 20/20 vision.

As for Soothsayer, I have a feeling he was banned on here.
For what ...I don't know, but he is sorely missed.

Yes, it has been discussed at this link, here on Casebook (forum Non-Fiction).

http://forum.casebook.org/showthread...ghlight=Carnac

Seems to be a fictional work from the 20th century. I remembered the name Carnac and did a search.

Doesn't look like he's banned on the member's list.

Maybe just tired of trying to defend the indefensible.

Hmmmm! strange.

Oh well let's hope he reappears in the not to distant future.

As an inveterate reader of this thread, I think it highly unlikely that he gave up. Circumstances must have played a part.

Oh well maybe he was banned for a period and when it was up he or she just couldn't be bothered to return.
