Review:

"Newman's fourth Anno Dracula book is a bracing, witty, allusive vampire tale revelling in the predatory decadence of 1970s New York and 1980s Hollywood. --Financial Times Books of the Year

A tour de force which succeeds brilliantly" --The Times

"A rich array of characters make Anno Dracula: Johnny Alucard. a compelling and hugely entertaining read, from identifying pop icons in unexpected guises to the intelligence and drama of this well crafted, witty and rousing book. --We Love This Book

"A rollicking ride through the pop culture of 1976-1991, as Kim Newman cleverly twists and turns the events of those fifteen years to fit his vampiric narrative.' --Criminal Element

"I entered a world which totally engulfed me." --Horror-Movies.ca

"Newman ties the old and the new together with a flourish...your enjoyment will be maximised if you have read the previous books, but... Johnny Alucard does stand alone as a commentary on the growth of vampires as a cultural icon in the past 50 or so years." --Herts Advertiser

"The qualities that make his [Newman s] writing such a pleasure are present in abundance the sharp, witty prose, the flights of fancy underpinned by enormous erudition." --Starburst Magazine

"Outrageously inventive vampire novels...Newman s often surrealist multiverse brings together a dizzying variety of ingredients." --The Independent

"Newman has crafted an exotic, scary, comic and utterly original novel." --Fantasy Book Review

"His depiction of a vampire-infested Hollywood is both authentic and imaginatively redrawn." --The Guardian

"Johnny Alucard is a great book written by a great writer." --Pop Mythology

"The sheer imagination, dark humor and masterful use of vampire lore makes Johnny Alucard another triumph for Newman and should make the book top-of-shelf for vampire lovers everywhere." --The Vampire Source

"Both gripping and horrific... and also slightly hilarious." CBR

"Stands above the rest of most of the vampire literature out on the shelves right now and for recent years." --Aint It Cool
