The terror and mystery created by “Jack The Ripper” has been the subject of countless books, magazine articles as well as movies and TV documentaries. Ask anyone if they have ever heard... More > of Jack The Ripper and it is doubtful anyone would respond with a “no idea.” By that same token, ask people who “Spring-heeled Jack” was and you would be lucky to find anyone who had ever heard of him. Spring-heeled Jack was the subject (loosely) of a film The Curse of the Wraydons (1946) and Dominic Keating also appeared as Spring Heeled Jack in the 2010 film Sherlock Holmes by The Asylum film company. The character has also featured in both American and British comic books and a number of books, for both children and adults. But the fact that the Springald held the country –not just London– in a grip of terror much longer that the Ripper did is all but forgotten except for some half-truths and fanciful theories. Now be prepared to read the full story of Spring Heeled Jack< Less
Out of Space By David Barnby
Paperback: $9.99

Former Brexit minister and MP, David Jones, has criticised the EU for threatening to kick Britain off the Galileo satellite programme after Brexit, in spite its £1bn contribution.... More > Notwithstanding advanced plans for a rocket by new company, Skyrora, to launch a satellite, this will effectively leave the UK ‘out of space’. In 1960 the Conservative government cancelled the mid-range Blue Streak rocket, and in 1971 cancelled the smaller Black Arrow rocket although it had successfully launched Prospero, a 100kg satellite, into orbit. It had been ‘kept alive’ by PM Wilson through the 1960s in the expectation of becoming a big contender for space work in the future. The demise of Black Arrow has been shrouded in mystery, but this booklet resulting from exhaustive research, reveals the truth – for PM Edward Heath, Black Arrow was a bargaining chip to get President Pompidou to remove France’s veto over joining the Common Market and leaving the French Ariane programme without its British rival.< Less
