Those are something I invented for this book called 'typos'. Since topography is so damn interesting, I knew this one small section of the book would be everybody's favorite and that everybody would want to spend hours following each word back to source. I mean, what's more crucial and interesting than how much dirt might have been on Sanders Street in 1888 vs a decade later? My only mistake was padding the book with hundreds of pages of significant Ripper-related research and ideas. If i had it to do over again, it would be 350 pages of nothing but street names and numbers and dirt and stuff. I'd count out each individual foot step so everyone could go count them and tell me where I was three steps short or off by a yard. Because that's EXACTLY what this book is about.

Yours truly,
