This week’s Irish Fiction Friday offering comes to us from Brian J Showers. While today’s selection isn’t strictly speaking fiction, it does nicely tie together our piece on Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu on Friday the 13th and our new regular feature of Touring Tuesdays.
Today’s reading is an account of Showers’ reading WJ McCormack’s biography of Sheridan Le Fanu and Showers own quest to locate Le Fanu’s final resting place. “Mix-Up at the Boneyard: On the Burial Vault of J.S. Le Fanu” was first published in Le Fanu Studies Volume 1, Issue #2, but an expanded version later appeared in Literary Walking Tours of Gothic Dublin, thus linking us to necro-tourism!
Brian J Showers was born in Madison, Wisconsin but now resides in Ireland, writing short stories, comics, articles, and reviews as well as running The Swan River Press.
