PATRICK McCRAY is a crazy man. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
McCRAY is in the process of watching and writing about the "core" Barnabas Collins arc of DARK SHADOWS. But he's put a novel spin in the latest phase of his "Dark Shadows Experiment." Dubbed THE COLLECTED JOURNALS OF BARNABAS COLLINS, he's spending the summer retelling these familiar tales from the points of view of the show's leading characters. Here's what he has to say about the project:
"The television program, DARK SHADOWS, portrays his trials and triumphs. Here, you will find the diary entries for each of the episodes in which he appeared, as well as letters and associated documents from his loved ones, associates, and rivals. His story, and the story of his true love, Angelique Bouchard, is as undying as his curse. Now, read the secret and private testimonies that were lost until now. The chapters will begin publication in on May 26 and will be finished on August 3."You can find the first entry of these journals HERE, which begins with a memorandum to Collins Cannery employees from their new public relations manager, Jason McGuire. Chapter links for the other available entries are at the top of the page. Enjoy!
