Subject: What a trip!
I signed off for the summer, since I was going on a long trip to eastern
Canada. And what a trip! My itinerary included the Archives of Ontario
(just across Grenville Street from the Coroner's Building), Union
Station (loved seeing the city names chiseled in the walls), the CN
Tower (& its scary open-air observation area), Royal Ontario Museum
(seen in the pilot--it was pretty cool to picture Nick & Schanke's first
meeting), and a little side trip to the Loft, which apparently is no
longer slated for conversion into condos. Thanks again to Marg Yamanaka
for giving me the address for the Loft. I also got more familiar than I
wanted to be with the 401 freeway, and if they can find me to bill me
for the new 407 (electronic toll road), I just might pay! I took the
subway from Casa Loma to Union Station. Did an FK episode ever use the
subway for a setting (aside from Union Station)? I don't remember one...
I also spent some time in Montreal and Quebec City. While I was waiting
in a laundromat, I picked up some old Sept Jours magazines--a kind of
Quebecois version of People--and read about a new vampire movie, filmed
& set in Montreal. Karmina 2 (K2 for short) was a sequel to the wildly
successful comedy Karmina, done five years earlier. So naturally I
tracked it down on DVD (dubbed in English). It was hilarious, and it
included an FK reference: a brief shot of several signs for downtown
bars included The Loft, a real Montreal bar--I think I drove past it.
I'm pretty sure the Vampire Lounge, seen in the same montage, is
As I was leaving the big TO, I had one odd little lingering thought. We
all know Nick never told Nat he loved her--but what about the reverse?
Was she just waiting for him, or did she ever say "I love you, Nick"?
Your very humble & most obedient servant,
P.S. I'm also eagerly awaiting Fred Saberhagen's next Dracula Tapes
book, _A Coldness in the Blood_, in October.

Off the top of my tired little head, LK contains the line, "You just have to
love me as much as I love you." So she did tell him, albeit in a dependent
Thanks for the trip details--sounds like fun, Ligeia!

Oops, I'd better clarify in case people rush off to order the wrong DVD.
Karmina is dubbed in English on DVD, and that's the one with the FK
reference I described. K2 is also out on DVD, but it only has English
subtitles. I haven't had a chance yet to watch it for FK references.
