Halloween is here, and my “Haunted Los Angeles” self-guided audio tour to downtown Los Angeles is yours to listen to via Los Angeles Magazine, plus I have just blogged about Jack The Ripper, who it seems prowled the streets here in 1892 https://gourmetghosts.com/2020/10/11/extra-jack-the-ripper-in-l-a/ – or did he? You decide!
The next True Crime Book Club via Zoom is on November 19 at 7.30pm PST when we’ll discuss Butcher, Baker: The True Account of an Alaskan Serial Killer by Walter Gilmour and Leland E. Hale, which was made into a John Cusack/Nicholas Cage movie.
I’ll be hosting the Last Bookstore, where you can buy the book and get the join up code: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/true-crime-tuesdays-with-james-t-bartlett-tickets103469586318
Otherwise, wash your hands, wear your mask, and buy Gourmet Ghosts – Los Angeles AND Gourmet Ghosts 2 so you can plan which bar or restaurant you’re going to go to! Also, The Journal interviews me about the Gourmet Ghosts, and here’s a link to my LA Weekly article about Jack The Ripper and the Dead & Buried podcast I guested on in Melbourne, Australia, when I went to investigate. Here too is a link to a piece I wrote on the infamous murder of the Black Dahlia. Other articles I have written recently include one about LA’s Natural History Museum museum taxidermist Tom Bovard for ALTA California, my latest for the LA Times about the aquarium at Union Station (there’s a diver in there every week!) and the whole Saturday section I got about A Beginner’s Guide to Griffith Park. Finally, keep up-to-date with news and “Daily Deaths” on Facebook Instagram and Twitter – but also check out the “Extra! Extra!” section here; lots of extra stories!
