    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBII found myself randomly thinking about this book today as I’m wont to do though my random thoughts generally tend to trend in the direction of Ghostbusters quotes the deliciousness of Slurpees or marveling over how Weebles wobble BUT THEY DON’T FALL DOWN and what I was thinking was how frustrating it is that books don’t always find as big an audience as they deserve This is an exceedingly entertaining pastiche of all things horror supernatural mysterious and Victorian and if that’s your jam you’ll love itIf that’s not your jam and frankly I’m not entirely sure I’m using the word “jam” correctly as I’m about as hip as an octogenarian joint replacement procedure

    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBIGutted I had such high hopes for this one Unfortunately it is the problem with a lot of steampunk style novels in my experience it sacrifices plot characters any semblance dramatic tension in favour of Victoriana and corsetry This is clever dick writing and I don't like itThe broadest hand waviest of plots Harker Van Helsing Et Al fail to kill off Dracula who survives gets married to Queen Victoria and establishes his own autocracy Jack the Ripper is still a Thing only this time he's killing newly made vampire whores which means we get to have a bit of bodice ripping check that one off your list and our two broadly speaking heroes a Victorian Gentleman Of Some Distinction and a Vampire Lady Elder Who Even After Six Centuries Still Looks Sixteen can go about detecting I mean I assume that's what they do I didn't see that much of it The rest of the book and it's a bit of a whopper is of a mood piece There's no real progression There's very little conflict and only sketc

    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBIThe title kept niggling at me shouldn't it be Anno Draculae? Latin declensions aside though this counterfictional mash up is quite good fun if a little baggy The premise is that Dracula was not defeated by Van Helsing but instead succeeded in his plot to take over British society and ended up marrying – and turning – Queen Victoria As the Prince Consort he now rules over a British Empire where vampirism is a fashionable lifestyle choice and where historical figures like Joseph

    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBI Murder brought us together Murderers kept us apartNot the opening line but it would have been a good one it actually comes much laterThis is probably quite a good book if this is your thing but it's not mine so I abandoned it In this alternative history there's been a global ascendancy of vampires Dracula has married widowed Queen Victoria and he has expelled some from the country after a feud that I didn't quite follow The narrator is one such refugee on a ship to Japan The Emperor has decreed that there are no vampires in Japan so those they do have live in a secure town not unlike a leper colony There's espionage an evil ship's captain separated lovers and struggles to survive Sherlock Holmes' less famous brother Mycroft is a key character There is hi

    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBIThis book was recommended to me by the owners of a gaming store the Magic and Warhammer type and I was eager to read it based on the premise of “vampires are ‘out’ and taking over” I knew that Dracula would be a character and I didn’t mind that the rest of the Dracula cast appeared as well in this version Dracula’s invasion of England was successful and he has married and turned Queen Victoria What ended up bothering me was the ridiculous proliferation of spot the reference vampire appearances Lord Ruthven i

    PDF/EPUB Kim Newman ☆ ☆ Anno Dracula MOBI ¼ anno pdf, dracula pdf, Anno Dracula MOBII hadn't read any fiction by Kim Newman before though I've always enjoyed his film reviews for Empire magazine I'm pretty sure I haven't read Dracula either though I've seen plenty of film versions of itThe twin premise here is that Dracula was not defeated at the end of Bram Stoker's novel and that he existed in the same world as many other fictional charactersIt's hard to mention that second bit without thinking of Alan Moore's later League of Extraordinary Gentlemen There are other similarities too in that both authors have penned sequels taking their stories into the twentieth century Earlier books in a similar vein include Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton books credited here by Kim Newman and of course just about every comic published since the 1940sPart of me wishes that New
