The Mammoth Book of Jack the Ripper Stories, published by Little, Brown (Constable and Robinson imprint) has just been published in the UK.

https://www.littlebrown.co.uk/books/detail.page?isbn=9781472135841

The book features my story Sherlock Holmes and the Simple Procedure.

The Amazon listings are below:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mammoth-Book-Jack-Ripper-Stories-ebook/dp/B00X7UJ5AG/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

Here is the blurb. Even though I'm not mentioned by name, there's a nod to my story at the end.

"In this wonderful collection of brand-new stories, Jakubowski has compiled an extraordinary array of explorations into the identity of Jack the Ripper - this time unabashedly fictional, unrestrained by history and the known facts.

Contributors include Carol Anne Davis, Martin Edwards, Peter Guttridge, Barbara Nadel;Alvaro Zinos-Amaro and Sally Spedding.

'Jack the Ripper' has appeared in a number of novels, as the lead character in some, beginning with Marie Belloc Lowndes's The Lodger (1913), filmed by Hitchcock. Authors as diverse as Michael Dibdin, Lindsay Faye, Philip Jose Farmer, Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison, Alan Moore, Fredric Brown, Ramsey Campbell and Colin Wilson have all used poetic licence to 'revive' the notorious killer.

The varied stories in this fantastic new collection continue this tradition with many possible identities put forward, some already suggested by historians, others more speculative, including famous names from history and fiction. Even Sherlock Holmes is on the case!"

In the U.S. the book comes out in December, published by Running Press.

Oh, and what a cover!

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]
