I would like to add Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte to the list, but be aware that the films, especially the classic one with Olivier, only cover part of the book. Would any of the following fit your list as well?

Jane Eyre¬  by Charlotte Bronte

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (I think he also wrote "The Canterville Ghost", or is he post-Gothic)

Here's a great site to check out

My apologies on not acknowledging your milestone earlier. Many congratulations and I hope you had a marvelous time. Now next New York convention you can check out Le Bar Bat and see where the sounds went down. I wish you many more happy birthdays.

Michael

Barnabas: So, it is agreed. You will join Captain Ahab on his quest for the great white whale, and as far as the family history is concerned, none of this will have ever happened.
Nathan: Okay, so call me Ishmael.   [silly]

I don't really know what's going on here, but it should be a word of warning about what happens when you use too many green light bulbs. Perhaps Barnabas is just jealous of Nathan's khaki Dockers slacks. ???

Hello All,
        The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly mentions Dark Shadows in its cover story on "Lost." I dont' have the exact article here, both it states "Lost" is on the same "parallel" as "Dark Shadows", "Twin Peaks" and "The Prisoner." Good company if you ask me, I love all of these series. Plus, its a positive mention.
       The second is a magazine called "Where Are They Now?", with the subtitle "Amazing stories on what happened to your favorite celebs." Two of DS casts members are profiled, along with the usual array of old sitcom cast members, and they are Kate Jackson and John Karlen. The Kate Jackson profile neglects to mention DS at all, implying she began on TV movies, while the John Karlen article is titled "From Dark Shadows to Detectives." The one page articles tend to have both the requisite then and now photos. John's look just like he stepped off of the panel on 1840, but you can't tell whether he's wearing his usual shorts or even pants at all. The article actually mentions John is a regular at the DS conventions where his shorts are legendary.
        Others featured with DS connections include Julia Duffy from "Newhart" who is married to Jerry Lacey, Gary Sandy of "WKRP" who did "Arsenic and Old Lace" onstage with Jonathan, and Peter Ostrum, Charlie in "Willy Wonka." Perhaps the magazine's greatest blooper is that is states Ostrum graduated Veterinary College in 1964! Wow, he was a doctor for over 6 years when he sang his way into our hearts in Wonka. Maybe they mean 1984.  Kind of a fun, light reading magazine. Still I wonder how Linda Ronstadt, Jeane Garafalo or even Debra Winger feel like being linked with the likes of Antonio Fargas, Robby Benson and Molly Ringwald? Some careers fall more quickly than others...  Now when is someone going to tell us where  Wes Stern, Lisa Gerritsen and our own Michael Maitland are? ::)

David: (trying to speak in a more adult voice): Hello Mutual of Omaha, my name is Roger Collins and I want a big accidental death policy, and can I meet Marlin Perkins and go on safari with Jim if I open one for $1,000,000.00?

Hey Prof,
      Several writers have noted the similarities in NODS and "Haunted Palace," such as in Video Watchdog and I think a book I have on Horror Directors. Considering how popular the Price/Poe series was at the time DS was being developed, I would think the writers and Dan would have been very familiar with them along with everyone else at the time. I enjoy the "Haunted Palace" , and it was nice to have Chaney Jr. guest in the series, although the Poe title is a misnomer, its actually an adaption of Lovecraft's "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward." The new DVD is even better than previous releases with the proper letterboxing. I once put both on the same VHS for a friend who also acknowledged the similarities.
      I should have thought if Dan had ever sprung for a big name guest star on DS during its original run, Vincent Price would have been perfect. I once did a DS sim character of Vincent Collins, and my favorite moment was when he was being questioned by a jailer, he turned and said only, "You must try our Collins fishcakes, they're very good really." Of course we did get "Pit and the Pendulum"'s Barbara Steele in the '91 series.
