  • 15:11 @puritybrown: me too, but I hate the anti-piracy ads even more. If a shop was in my face like that about stealing, I'd leave. It's insulting #
  • 15:14 sitting in the sun, on a swinging chair, with green hills and a book (Dark Side of the Moon - not really sunshine reading) #
  • 15:55 I have sudden urge to read vampire stories set in Dublin. Anyone know of any? Or want to write some? #

Can't help you with Dublin, but if you find New York to be a decent substitute, I'd recommend Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt novels (vampire pulp noir).

I was reading one set in Seattle, where she was mentioning place that I suppose are familiar to people from there. I want a taste of that.

But I'll keep an eye out for those anyway.

BTW, it was good to meet you too. Slow reply to your previous comment is due to me not having read the Ellen Kushner link yet.

Your icon reminds me of you.

Not set in Dublin, but by a Dublin author - Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. "Carmilla" predates Dracula by 20 or so years. The full text can be found here:

Bram Stoker is from Dublin too! Thanks for the links.

I know! What was it with Victorian Dublin Protestants and vampires?

They alone knew the truth?

Maybe, maybe...

I'm not sure we could stop you. BTW, don't you owe me a story? How about vampires in Dublin with no milking machines, weevils, or speshul saddles? Or would that limit you too much?

Ok then, you can have weevils.

I'd also like if they went out a little bit. Otherwise there's no point in it being set in Dublin.

Perhaps Wingnut and Alphonse have been turned.
