it was amazing
bookshelves: 19th-century, british-isles, fantasy, fiction, horror, mythology, supernatural, cthulhu-mythos, humor, werewolves, vampires
Read from October 24 to 29, 2015

A humorous, sometimes heartwarming,story of a man and his dog - a man who happens to be Jack the Ripper - which features Otherworldly horrors from beyond time and space, human sacrifice, vivisectionists, and grave robbing. It also has tea with the vicar (the EVIL vicar), carriage rides through the English countryside, Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, a mad Russian monk, a Welsh Druid, and the Wolfman. Obviously, Gahan Wilson is the only man to illustrate it. One of my favorite Halloween books.
