Default Yet Another Grateful Greenhorn

Hello fine people of the Jack Ripper Forums,

I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a member. I am looking forward to discussing anything that's old and mysterious.

Upfront, I will say, I love old suspenseful radio and tv. I fall asleep every night to Suspense or Inner Sanctum or something similar. I love everything about it. I'm also a huge fan of golden age mystery fiction and I love hearing or seeing adaptations of those stories. Dickson Carr, especially, but Christie and Berkeley and Marsh and Hare and Conan Doyle... the list goes on.

I'm also a writer of fiction and I find a lot of inspiration from the old stories. I discovered all of this directly and indirectly from my grandfather. He got me into Sherlock Holmes (former) and when he died I "inherited" his old "too hot for radio" and "too scary for radio" cassettes (latter.) (By inherited, I mean, nobody else wanted them.)

Anyway, I can't wait to dig in!

Yes, welcome Dave, I'm sure you'll enjoy the forum! One of my hobbies is collecting detective fiction of between the wars, (I like Sherlock Holmes too) so I do understand your obsession!
