Blood Upon The Rose creator Gerry Hunt is on the verge of returning to the shelves with his new book Draugr In Dublin City. It tells the tale of a couple of young Dublin ne’er-do-wells who disturb a Viking grave. The Viking comes back to life as a Draugr – a sort of vengeful zombie with superhuman powers – to claim back what is rightfully his.
Speaking about Draugr’s rampage through modern Dublin in an interview about the book with the Irish Independent, Gerry said, “I just thought The Spire, that has to go; and I’ve hated the top of Liberty Hall for years. It’s like a bloody accordion you would squeeze in and out. The new Conference Centre isn’t big enough either, with too much contrast between the stone and the glass.”
