Genre: heroic
Annotation:'Kim Newman's Anno Dracula is back in print, and we must celebrate. It was the first mash-up of literature, history and vampires, and now, in a world in which vampires are everywhere, it's still the best, and its bite is just as sharp. Compulsory reading, commentary, and mindgame: glorious.' -Neil Gaiman

'Politics, horror, and romance are woven together in this brilliantly imagined and realized novel. Newman's prose is a delight, his attention to detail is spellbinding.' -Time Out

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 themAnno Draculais the definitive account of that post-modern species, the self-obsessed undead. -New York Times

Anno Draculawill leave you breathless... one of the most creative novels of the year. -Seattle Times

Powerful... compelling entertainment... a fiendishly clever banquet of dark treats. -San Francisco Chronicle

'A ripping yarn, an adventure romp of the best blood, and a satisfying read' -Washington Post Book World

'The most comprehensive, brilliant, dazzlingly audacious vampire novel to date. 'Ultimate' seems an apt description...Anno Dracula is at once playful, horrific, intelligent, and revelatory.' -Locus

'A marvelous marriage of political satire, melodramatic intrigue, gothic horror, and alternative history. Not to be missed.' -The Independent

'Once you start reading this Victorian-era thriller, you will not besatiated until you reach the end.' -Ain't It Cool

'Anno Dracula is the smart, hip Year Zero of the vampire genre's ongoingrevolution.' -Paul McAuley

'Kim Newman brings Dracula back home in the granddaddy of all vampire adventures. Anno Dracula couldn't be more fun if Bram Stoker had scripted it for Hammer. It's a beautifully constructed Gothic epic that knocks almost every other vampire novel out for the count.' -Christopher Fowler
'The most interesting take on the Dracula story... to date. Recommending this one to all those that love Dracula and historical fiction!' -RexRobotReviews
