Features

30 The Haunted Landscape (Cover Story)
London in the 19th century was the haunt of monsters in search of helpless female victims, and Spring-heeled Jack was the most notorious of them all before Jack the Ripper arrived on the scene. But, asks Jacob Middleton, have Jack's celebrated supernatural qualities obscured the real context in which such attackers operated?

36 The True History of Guy Logan
Jan Bondeson looks at the career of Guy Logan, forgotten author of the first full-length fictional account in English of Jack the Ripper's crimes, and we reprint the opening chapter from the 1905 Illustrated Police News.

40 Blades in the Night
Scott Wood examines London's phantom slashers, from the Mohawks to Jack the Ripper, in the context of the capital's wealth of urban legend.

44 Speaking in Tongues
Ted Harrison asks whether the Anglican Church has been revitalised by evangelical modernisers of hijacked by fringe Charismatic Christian activities like glossolalia.
