Stephen Ryder may still have 'A Cast Of Thousands' on Casebook...it was in CD format....plus Chris's two paperback books, 'Will The Real Mary Kelly.....?" and "The Ripper In Ramsgate"....might still be available. A nice way of remembering him would be to get a copy of one or all.

Listened to a couple of podcasts featuring Chris yesterday, including the one about non-suspect based Ripperology.
Indispensable.
Godspeed, Chris Scott.

A solid candidate for the Mount Rushmore of Ripperology.

R.I.P. Chris Scott.

RIP the late great Chris Scott.

Chris wrote the guest article "The Apotheosis of Mary Kelly" for Madame Guillotine's blog --

Also see the comments that accompany the article, written by Chris himself, Howard, and by me, among others.

Here again is the link to Chris Scott giving research advice in case anyone missed it on my 5 Questions thread. There's bound to be some members here who have never heard him before.
