Vampire tales offering a fictional history of the most memorable vampire of them all - Count Dracula.
How will the King of Vampires adapt to the social and technological changes brought by the twenty-first century? Could the Count’s condition be cured by modern medicine? How does the mythology perpetuated by literature and movies affect the existence of a real bloodsucker? What if Dracula found himself ruler of a world controlled by vampires? Or perhaps political and ecological catastrophe will result in the Count’s final destruction? This tribute to the world’s greatest vampire collects together more than 200,000 words of Dracula fiction by masters of dark fantasy such as: Hugh B. Cave, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Basil Copper, John Gordon, Brian Hodge, Nancy Holder, Nancy Kilpatrick, Roberta Lannes, Thomas Ligotti, Paul J. McAuley, Nicholas Royle, Guy N. Smith and many more.
It also includes a brand new story from Charlaine Harris.
