Review:

You don't need to have read Anno Dracula to enjoy this feisty sequel set amidst the airborne heroics and trench-warfare drudgery of World War I. As in the previous book, part of the fun is spotting all the names from history and literature who pop up in major and minor roles: a vampire named Edgar Poe is writing the Baron von Richthofen's biography; Mata Hari contributes her vampire bloodline to German breeding experiments; and characters from such sources as P. G. Wodehouse, J. K. Huysmans, D. H. Lawrence, Sinclair Lewis, Ernest Hemingway--as well from movies such as Nosferatu (1922), The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Jules et Jim--each impart their dollop of richness to this alternate universe. But the dogfights between Sopwith Camels and huge winged vampires are the real heart of the book: Kim Newman has done his research, so the air battles are vivid and thrilling. 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.
