The Green Book

There's a new journal in town - Dublin town. The Green Book is published by Brian Showers at Swan River Press, who describes it as offering 'Writings on Irish Gothic, Supernatural and Fantastic Literature'. The contents are non-fiction, in other words, and the line-up of essayists and reviewers in Green Book 1 is truly impressive. And, to add some degree of intellectual balance, there's a bit by me as well...
