Another book in the Anno Dracula series is on the way! An all new novel in Kim Newman’s popular Anno Dracula series, Anno Dracula: Johnny Alucard, brings the series Stateside to Andy Warhol’s New York and Orson Welles’ Hollywood. Coming out June 25, 2013, Johnny Alucard is the fourth book in this unique series. Check out the book’s cover and more details below!
“A brand-new novel in the Anno Dracula series, this instalment takes the series to the States and Andy Warhol’s New York and Orson Welles’ Hollywood. Written by acclaimed novelist and movie critic this long-awaited new book should not be missed.
It’s 1976 and vampire reporter Kate Reed is on the set of Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula. She helps a young vampire boy, Ion Popescu, who then leaves Transylvania for America. In the States, Popescu becomes Johnny Pop and attaches himself to Andy Warhol, inventing a new drug which confers vampire powers on its users…”
Definitely different, very different, which is always good (especially in vampire literature). I have yet to read the series myself (bad me!) but I hear nothing but amazing things about it. It’s a favorite of many readers. So if you haven’t already, check it out before the new book comes out.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
