9781783290994: Anno Dracula - Johnny Alucard

Fallen from grace and driven from the British Empire in previous instalments, Dracula seems long gone. A relic of the past. Yet, when vampire boy Johnny Alucard descends upon America, stalking the streets of New York and Hollywood, haunting the lives of the rich and famous, from Sid and Nancy to Andy Warhol, Orson Welles, and Francis Ford Coppola, sinking his fangs ever deeper into the zeitgeist of 1980s America, it seems the past might not be dead after all.

About the Author:

Kim Newman is a well known and respected author and movie critic. He writes regularly for Empire Magazine and contributes to The Guardian, The Times, Time Out and others. He makes frequent appearances on radio and TV. He has won the Bram Stoker, International Horror Guild, British Fantasy and British Science Fiction Awards and been nominated for the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards.

From Publishers Weekly:

The transformation in 1944 of a boy into a vampire launches the zany latest entry in Newman's Anno Dracula series of vampire stories, set in an alternate world where Dracula ruled England before dying in 1959. The boy, who goes first by John Popp and later by Johnny Alucard, heads for the bright lights of New York, where he's immersed in Manhattan celebrity culture, and Hollywood, where he's immersed in greed; Newman gleefully and capably skewers the inanities of life in both cities in the 1990s. As America embraces the cutting-edge vampire phenomenon, Alucard's intentions turn sinister and he contemplates revenge against vampire opponents. The exuberance of Newman's satire is overwhelming at times, but takeoffs such as a benefit concert for the Transylvania Movement (featuring the Free Transylvania anthem—John Lennon's ÇÿImagine,' the greatest song ever written by a vampire ) are undeniably funny. As vampire characters from previous books resist Alucard's domination, cash disbursements ensure his success in human society. The conclusion hints at further tales to come. Agent: James Lockhart, Antony Harwood Literary Agency. (Sept.)
