Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A lost Sherlock Holmes manuscript leads Ellery Queen to his own investigation of the Jack the Ripper murders in ``A Study in Terror,'' the longest contribution to this anthology of eight horror stories revolving around the world's most notorious unsolved murders. From Harlan Ellison's surreal ``The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World'' to Ramsey Campbell's macabre ``Jack's Little Friend,'' this selection spans more than 70 years of ``Ripper'' tales. Since 1988 is the 100th anniversary of the murders, and two PBS-TV specials on the Ripper aired this fall, libraries may expect some interest. JC
