New Journal Launch: The Green Book

Posted by Matt Foley on May 09, 2013 in Blog, News tagged with

Swan River Press has announced recently that it is set to publish a new bi-annual journal: The Green Book: Writings on Irish Gothic, Supernatural and Fantastic Literature. The first edition is available to preorder now and, among other topics, it contains essays on Sheridan Le Fanu, Irish Gothic, and Conor McPherson. According to the Swan River Press website, the journal will be aimed at a general readership and will feature commentaries, articles, and reviews on Irish Gothic, Supernatural and Fantastic literature.” In terms of a further guide to its scholarly content, the publishers suggest that

favourites such as Bram Stoker and John Connolly will come to mind, but hopefully The Green Book also will serve as an introduction to Ireland’s other notable fantasists: like Fitz-James O’Brien, Lafcadio Hearn, William Allingham, Sheridan Le Fanu, Cherio, Mrs. Riddell, Harry Clarke, Lord Dunsany, Elizabeth Bowen, Mervyn Wall, Conor McPherson . . . this list is by no means exhaustive.
