It’s a 666 page account
... was this deliberate on the part of the author/publishers? o_O
This book sounds fascinating, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.

if the Jacobin movement could have persisted for decades based on a refusal to see the succession laws of the realm as legitimate,
I think you mean Jacobite; the Jacobins had a very different take on monarchical legitimism.
- Arthur B on Gull's From Hell and John's From Glasgow at 13:26 on 16-10-2018 - link (To be fair, it wasn't solely Gorman who got Sickert involved in Ripper stuff - apparently Sickert was known for sharing Ripper-related anecdotes and his own personal claims about who the killer was, though these don't feature in Gorman's story because he says that those were lies Sickert told to cover for his real knowledge of the crimes. Nonetheless, if you're going to actually allege that Sickert was involved, it kind of falls to you to at least look over Knight's book which is one of the major releases in Ripperology pushing the Sickert theory.)
- Arthur B on Gull's From Hell and John's From Glasgow at 12:33 on 16-10-2018 - link Odd that Cornwell doesn't mention Gorman at all - that suggests that either she'd wholly failed to research her own theory, or she knew full well Gorman existed but decided not to mention him because his cranky demeanour would hurt her theory.
