We've just had 2 days at the DV8 festival in York, a couple of new sites i need to point you all at from people we met there... First is a UK Wine just starting up called Bats Blood - cant tell you how nice the packaging on this looks, comes in a handmade, purple lined coffin.

Second one... everyone i know who has been to Bats and Broomsticks Bed and Breakfast in Whitby is a big fan, just found out that there's another place nearby in Scarboro that is well worth checking out - Chiroptera Gothic Guest House. (Check out the gallery!)

NEW FILM NEWS - spotted by BD, Sword of Wood - details are here.

"Sword of Wood," is a previously unpublished work that "tells the story of a landed baron and knight who battles in the Holy Lands at the time of the First Crusade, then returns home to learn that his manor and holdings have been raided by an army of vampires and his wife and children carried off. This begins his new crusade, going alone against an army of the damned."

More NEW FILM NEWS, again spotted by BD - Last Blood, details are here.

First announced way back in 2008, Simon Hunter has been set to direct Last Blood, a live action adaptation of the Keenspot graphic novel that takes place after a zombie apocalypse, when vampires must battle to protect the last surviving humans to keep alive the necessary blood supply.

More NEW FILM NEWS - and big news at that.  Warner Bros have picked up the film rights for Deborah Harkness' Discovery of Witches series.

When historian Diana Bishop opens a bewitched alchemical manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library it represents an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordinary life. Though descended from a long line of witches, she is determined to remain untouched by her family’s legacy. She banishes the manuscript to the stacks, but Diana finds it impossible to hold the world of magic at bay any longer.

For witches are not the only otherworldly creatures living alongside humans. There are also creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires who become interested in the witch’s discovery. They believe that the manuscript contains important clues about the past and the future, and want to know how Diana Bishop has been able to get her hands on the elusive volume.

Chief among the creatures who gather around Diana is vampire Matthew Clairmont, a geneticist with a passion for Darwin. Together, Diana and Matthew embark on a journey to understand the manuscript’s secrets. But the relationship that develops between the ages-old vampire and the spellbound witch threatens to unravel the fragile peace that has long existed between creatures and humans—and will certainly transform Diana’s world as well.
