By the author of "The Night Mayor" and "Jago", this horror novel, set in 1888, tells of the remarriage of the Widow of Windsor. Her new consort is Vlad Tepes, the Wallachian Prince infamously known as Count Dracula. In Whitechapel, a murderer known as Silver Knife is cutting down vampire girls.

Review:

As Nina Auerbach writes in the New York Times, " Stephen King assumes we hate vampires; Anne Rice makes it safe to love them, because they hate themselves. Kim Newman suspects that most of us live with them . . . . Anno Dracula is the definitive account of that post-modern species, the self-obsessed undead." In this first of what looks to be an excellent series, Victorian England has vampires at every level of society, especially the higher ones, and they engage in incessant intrigue, power games, and casual oppression of the weak--activities, as we know, that are all too human. Numerous characters from literature and from history appear in both major and cameo roles. Spectacular fight scenes, stormy politics, and a serial vampire killer keep the action lively. A scholarly bibliography is included.

About the Author:

Kim Newman has written numerous acclaimed and successful novels and short stories. He writes slightly more disreputable work as Jack Yeovil, has written for a wide variety of magazines and journals, is a contributing editor for both SIGHT AND SOUND and EMPIRE, and has appeared on (and scripted) a great many radio and television programs, ranging from high-end arts reviews to tacky quiz shows and horror host DR TERROR.
