DRACULA COMES TO NEW YORK: Kim Newman returns to one of the great bestselling vampire tales of the modern era. Considered alongside I Am Legend and Interview with theVampire as one of the stand-out vampire stories of the last century - this brand-new novel is the first in over a decade from the remarkable and influential Anno Dracula series.

Newman's dark and impish tale begins with a single question: What if Dracula had survived his encounters with Bram Stoker's Dr. John Seward and enslaved Victorian England?

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.

Fourth installment of Newman's alternative "history" world where Dracula survived and vampires "came out". Supposedly killed off in the third novel, one of Dracula's gets is ambitious for power, comes to America and gets to meet all sorts of famous people from the late quarter of the 20th century. Real life celebrities, and fictionalized version of literary and movie vampires make cameo appearances, and it is fun trying to spot them. This book isn't a novel per se, but a series of short stories that were published in the past, and edited into tome, so it can feel a bit disjointed at times. It is also a good idea to read the previous novels first.
