Serial Novels: Anno Dracula

Kim Newman has created a series of books which is part horror and part revisionist history. He bases the series on this premise: Dracula and the people in the Bram Stoker novel were real and what would happened if Dracula actual won their battle. From there he starts changing history as humans and vampires live side by side through the 1900's with each book taking a critical point in time (turn of the century 1900, WWI, and 1959).

I find these fascinating reads as Newman weaves facts and fiction to create a unique universe with credibility and ease. Great stuff.

1. Anno Dracula

2. The Bloody Red Baron

3. Judgement of Tears (AKA Dracula Cha Cha Cha)

Always meant to read these; glad to hear they're worthwhile. Newman's book on modern horror film, Nightmare Movies, is essential.
