I must admit that I do like to occasionally purchase Paranormal Magazine. The publication is currently on its 57th issue and covers a wide range of phenomena and mysteries. In the past we have been treated to a number of articles by believers and sceptics alike, and covering a wide range of topics from cryptozoology to ufology, ghost, haunting’s, myths, and legends. The articles are always well written, well presented, and feature stunning, often full page, glossy photos. Despite this it is not a magazine I get as often as I would like.
This issue featured “Jack the Ripper” written across the front cover, and it was enough to gain my attention and purchase the publication. Despite having a bag of shopping I tried in vain to read the article on the way home, but with the wind, and bag of treats pulling down my arms, I opted to wait until I got home.
I was quiet surprised when I finally arrived home to read that the article that I assumed was to be an overview and/or discussion regarding the identity of the Whitechapel Murderer, was instead, nothing more than a plug for a fictional book written by D Michelle Gent, entitled, Cruel and Unusual.
The four page spread, featuring 2 large full page images and a page and half of text, features a short introduction to Gent’s work, and brief snippet from her new release. Despite being disappointed by the feature, I will be looking at getting hold of Gent’s work to read and review. Watch this space.
