There I was, perambulating along a Tube platform, when I saw a most amazing poster for the novel Anno Dracula by Kim Newman.
Only a very few SFF writers gets posters on the Tube; and this one stood out because it’s one of my favourite vampire novels ever. Exquisitely written; lusciously vicious; witty; richly characterised; and steeped in period charm. It even features Queen Victoria as – no, I shan’t say more, that would be a spoiler. It’s a gem of a book although, or so it seems to me, it’s been somewhat neglected of late next to the Sookie Stackhouses and Bellas and the like.
Titan Books have re-released this volume and are clearly giving it a big splash. I have to say, the sequel The Bloody Red Baron is in my view even better. It’s the one I read fast, and I’ve raved about it on this site before.
