The case of Jack the Ripper, the notorious serial killer and prostitute-butcher who terrorized Whitechapel in 1888, soon inspired various works of pulp fiction; amongst the first of these was the short gothic novel "The Curse Upon Mitre Square" by John Francis Brewer, published in October that year. Using the murder of Catherine Eddowes in Mitre Square as a key plot inspiration, Brewer's lurid classic starts with the disembowelling of a woman by a perverted priest in old London, before moving to the modern day where the "curse" of the priest's crimes is manifested in ghostly apparitions and bloody slaughter. This special ebook edition of "The Curse Upon Mitre Square" is augmented by the inclusion of "The Lodger" by Marie Belloc Lowndes, another Ripper classic which first appeared in 1911 and would later inspire Alfred Hitchcock's 1927 film of the same name.
