I must acknowledge some envy for Eoghan Kidney's genius for PR, though I'm skeptical whether his project will do any tiny thing for Ulysses readership, but I found this image of his highly suggestive:
Paddy Dignam's Wake
or Ulysses-Proteus and ZOMBIESIn an alternate universe, Paddy Dignam rises up from his funeral at 11:00am on Thursday June 16, 1904, and proceeds to infect all the mourners present as ZOMBIES, who lurch down to the beach where only Stephen Dedalus, armed with Haines' hunting rifle and his trusty ashplant, stands between civilisation and CHAOS.
Wave upon wave, sequential tides of zombie mourners, zombie schoolboys in uniform, zombie medical students, zombie Celtic revivalists, zombie prostitutes, zombie priests, and finally zombie-Dedalus-family-members led by their Boss, Zombie 'May' Dedalus herself, must be mown down ruthlessly: "Shoot them to bloody bits with a bang shotgun, bits man spattered walls all brass buttons. Bits all khrrrrklak in place clack back..."
Coming soon to an imagination near you...
