On ye olde 13 O’Clock Podcast this week, Tom and Jenny travel back to the dark days of cobblestone streets and flickering gas lamps to talk about some largely forgotten, horrific crimes from the 19th century. First we’ll discuss the case of the Thames Torso Murders, a grisly series of killings in London that began before the Ripper Murders and even continued a bit after them; then we’ll focus our attention on Austin, Texas, where in 1884 and 1885 the so-called “Servant Girl Annihilator” was axing people to death in their beds; and lastly, we’ll delve into the obscure entwined cases of the Denver Strangler, believed to have killed at least three women, and Alfred Knapp, executed for one of the tangential crimes that is sometimes linked to the Strangler. Put on your deerstalker hat and pop in your monocle, because we’re traipsing through some old timey crime on episode 165.
Send me your scary stories (either true or fictional, just not too long) and maybe we’ll read it on our special Halloween episode! Email them to me at email@example.com!

Some of you may remember my short story collection The Associated Villainies, which I published way back in 2011. Well, I have recently published a second edition, complete with four extra stories, a new cover design, tweaks and corrections to the stories, and a cooler interior layout. The print and ebook versions are available now, and an audio book version will be coming in a few weeks’ time.
