    I wonder how much you can get a whole festival out of Bram stokers work. Dracula is a masterpiece but the rest is kind of eh

      The Snake’s Pass is very good. And it says some interesting things on the GAA.

    The Snake’s Pass is, in my humble opinion, a much better book than Dracula. Properly spooky, and set in Ireland.

    Stoker wasn’t even the first Irish man to write about vampires. Sheridan Le Fanu’s Carmilla (the inspiration for, among others, Lesbian Vampire Killers) was published 26 years earlier.

    That said, hooray for the Bram Stoker festival and hats off to those involved.

      I have just seen The Curse of Styria in the Screen cinema as part of the festival, based on Carmilla. Got to meet and do a Q&A with the directors after ‘n all. Brilliant film

    Goths on bouncy castles, Goths on bouncy castles!!! Only then will it be a proper festival.

    Bloomsday celebrates Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ and is celebrated all over the world and attracts thousands of people to Dublin in the middle of June each year!
