My daughter wants to know what to get me for Christmas. I already get Ripperana, I might enjoy Ripperologist. How much does it cost and how do you get it?

Good choice!! I started subscribing earlier this year and am very pleased.
If you have any other requests for gift ideas, let me suggest Ripper Notes.Getting both is not at all reundant.

I subscribe to both Ripperologist and Ripper Notes. And as Mags has stated Getting both is not at all redundant. They would both make great Christmas gifts.

Dear Diana....In my opinion,as a consumer and subscriber to both,I offer this...
If possible,subscribe to both. It will cost you,as it does me,a fellow American,$ 90.00, for both. Thats 10 issues...6 Rip's and 4 Rip Notes.
Not only are both periodicals great reads,but from a consumer's and Ripperological p.o.v.,its good to at least subscribe to one of them...
Because like everything and anything else,competition improves quality. If there was only one periodical,the advancement and encouragement of future investigation would suffer...Only one brand of soda would be awful !
It also provides a forum for writers,like Mr. Zinna,as an example,to expand our knowledge of the atmosphere of Victorian society...or Tom Wescott's connections of a Cornish legend to the possible origin of the moniker,Jack The Ripper....to the great insight into the machinations of Samuel Montagu,by Chris George..
No crime is covered by a cadre of international and dedicated people like the WM...Does the Zodiac have three and at one time,four magazines,devoted to it?
Besides,Diana....You worked so hard this year...cutting expenses to be able to provide for others...non selba sed anther!!
Its time to treat yourself,my good woman. You deserve it !!!!

Since you've already been provided with Ripperologist's URL, let me also encourage you to check out www.rippernotes.com. My condolences on your subscription to Ripperana. No doubt, 2005 will be a MUCH better year for you, literarily. And I agree with Howard, Jack the Ripper clearly is the Elvis of serial killers, and it's a shame there's so few fan clubs and periodicals devoted to sadistic women killers, but as society becomes more enlightened, I'm sure that will change. One day Zodiac will have his day in the sun; once the "investigators" into his crimes (www.zodiackiller.com) are collectively literate enough to publish and maintain a magazine. In the meantime, they gather to drink beer at the murder sites and call it a 'conference'. Lizzie Borden has her own bi-monthly online journal, which is quite handsomely produced, though a bit fluffy. If you'd like to read some samples from the various Ripper mags, they have them available at their respected websites, and others appear right here at the Casebook under 'Dissertations'.
