Bram Stoker.

Slainté ("good health," to those who don't speak Gaelic; despite my incredibly British surname, I had maternal Irish grandparents), and Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Valancourt Books has reprinted The Mystery of the Sea (1902), a neglected novel of Dublin-born novelist Bram Stoker. The firm also plans to reissue Stoker's Scotland-set smuggler tale The Watter's Mou (1894), which was praised by Arthur Conan Doyle on its publication.
