    I used to talk to Ross fairly regularly but not for years. I heard that hed just lost interest in all things Jack the Ripper. I recall that he had two other loves...Punk Rock and Kilmarnock FC. Nice guy, very knowledgable on Ripper books. Ive got 2 copies of his guide for some reason. The last time that I spoke to him hed had bit of luck which involved buying a box of books cheaply which contained a William Stewart which he sold to someone in the USA for a hefty sum.

        hello guys,
        someone mentioned this thread to me so i thought i would register and say hello.
        yes i am 100% fully retired from all things jack the ripper.it must be coming up for 20 years since i sold my collection of books and ephemera and sorry to say i no longer follow the case or the literature any longer.
        the only book i own is the brilliant "jack the ripper:the definitive casebook" by richard whittington egan,a truely great work on the case.
        since i published my handbook i'm certain a mass of material has been unearthed and published and maybe someone has or is working on an updated bibliography.
        i did sell a william stewart a long time ago but i paid a few pounds for it also.
        the highlight of my collection was a book by susan mylechreest called the whitechapel murders published in the 70's which i believe had an incredibly small print run.i did not even include it in my bibliography as i was not even sure it was released to the general public and was possibly given to friends and family but my memory is hazy. i think i passed it on to a ripper author and collector.
        no plans to dip my toe into this field again,i kind of look at it as rightly or wrongly "been there done that"
        i met so many great people through the subject,but its all in the past.
        however some things never change and my love of kilmarnock fc and 70's punk band the sex pistols will never cease.
        all the best to everyone still interested in jack.
        cheers
