Tomorrow we return to the novel, and commence once more our blog progress through Stoker's masterpiece.
I really appreciate the enthusiasm of our readers, as well as the generous and thoughtful comments to the last post about the project and how to do this. Here's what I think we can get away with:
- The entire text, as before.
- Links to previous discussions.
I'd appreciate help with the images and maps, please. Feel free to post links in comments, and/or contact me directly. On my end, I'll be scanning Flickr and including images I've taken. I'm also hoping to do some minor site design - I kept things minimal when we began in order to focus on the text. Steve, would you be able to help with maps, as per your suggestion? Any Google Earth fans wanting to take a crack at setting up a .kml file for, say, Drac's route to Whitby?
Podcasting: a fabulous idea. Unfortunately my schedule is far, far too crazed for the next two months to really do this (including teaching a series of workshops on podcasting, ironically). Should we volunteer to read selections for the first part, as we can? I can set up an OurMedia account to hold content, if that's acceptable.
As an alternative, or an addition, Marty Busse suggests a podcast commentary. Again, my time is nonexistent through June. Elizabeth, perhaps one of us could interview you? I'd be happy to start commenting in July.
Tagging: I'd like to nominate "dracula2007" as a general tag for this year's run, unless someone has a better term. Agent Zelda, would you like us to do more?
If you're blogging on your own, please link to us when you can. Comments and reflections on your site would be appreciated.
