Discover more from Dracula Daily
In which we discuss the Dracula offseason
Hello! Editor Matt here. Dracula ended on November 7, and so you won’t get further emails here… for a while. But today I’ve got some news and updates, and a mini-FAQ about how this email newsletter works in the off-season.
Thanks so much for reading along! I can’t stress enough how fun this is for me, and how delightful this entire experience is. You all are amazing.
In October I got to do some IRL events around the country at bookstores, libraries, and some other fun Drac-adjacent spaces. If you came out to one of those, thank you! These were super fun, and everybody I met was just uniformly nice and interesting. Some of you were in costume! It was so great.
When we had space for an AV setup, I did a talk about the Dracula Daily and its response - and we recorded one of them. You can watch it below. Please insert your own don’t-forget-to-like-and-subscribe joke here.
If you liked reading Dracula this way and want a keepsake of the experience, or if you want to tackle reading Dracula at your own pace but with some jokes from the internet, you can still get the book! It’s available lots of places, and you can get it from a local bookshop or an expedient online retailer.
If you want to stay up to date on other projects I’m doing, I send out VERY infrequent emails on a different list at studiokirkland.substack.com. If you sign up there you’ll get news on Drac-related things and other weird projects I’m involved in. I promise not to bother you very often.
OK, a quick FAQ about what happens next:
Q. Are you doing this again in 2024?
Q. How’s it going to work?
A. Exactly the same. If you’re signed up for this newsletter, you’ll get all of Dracula Daily, starting in May 2024. You won’t need to do anything further, it will just show up in your inbox in May. I’ll probably send out a few reminders before it starts.
Q. But what if I don’t want to read Dracula again?
A. Did you read with us in 2023, and now you’ve read enough Dracula? You should unsubscribe, probably! That’s no problem, nobody will get their feelings hurt.
Q. Sure, fine, but what am I supposed to do until May?
A. I don’t know man, go to the library? Here are some other things you might consider:
Utrecht University student Anna is doing a thesis on Dracula Daily and has this survey for you: https://forms.gle/FU416U5EKxB2a5eE9 - your response would be appreciated!
I love the other serialized newsletters of classic literature. There are a bunch you can subscribe to and read other classic books in your email. I’m still enjoying Whale Weekly!
The incredible Re:Dracula pod is doing Carmilla next year, you can tap your feet excitedly until then.
OK! That’s it - as always you can also email email@example.com if you’ve got a specific question.
