Letter from Castle Dracula
The newsbullettin of The Transylvanian Society of Dracula
The Transylvanian Society of Dracula Symposium
The disclosures expected of this particular symposium are understandably high, and the society strives to meet the expectations by securing the cooperation of the best minds of the Institute of Ethnography and Folklore (led by Prof. Dr. Sabina Ispas, founder-member of the TSD, who in the meantime has become a Fellow of the Academy); of Prof. Dr. Sorin Comorosan, Fellow of the Academy, who promised a long-awaited “Parallel Worlds in the light of modern quantum physics”; of Prof. Dr. Silviu Angelescu and his equally awaited “Typology of the Supernatural”; or the intriguing “A new theory on the vampire” by Sir Alan Murdie, chairman of the famous “Ghost Club”, England; “The findings of a forensic expert on After-life” by Dr. Mark Benecke, the World’s best forensic biologist. Two ethnographic and folkloric sanctuaries of Romania will send their representatives Prof. Dr. Mihai Fifor, director of The Ethnographic Museum of Oltenia (who can be questioned about the notorious Marotinu case villagers settling a “strigoi” by traditional means); and Prof. Dr. Mihai Dancus, director of the Ethnographic Museum of Maramures.
