Here are a few items of interest that passed through my virtual In Box this week:
HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA that has recently been released as an e-book from E-Reads (E-Reads previously released THE PALACE and BLOOD GAMES). Also Yarbro's HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (1978) was just nominated for the Horror Writer Association's Bram Stoker Vampire Novel of the Century Award. The winner will be announced in late March. News on all of the award nominees can be read at SFScope.
And finally here is a preview of the cover for the 25th, yes 25th novel in the series, Commedia Della Morte due for release March 12.
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's modern classic,Hotel Transylvania, introduced the Count Saint-Germain and his beloved, Madelaine de Montalia. The Count is one of the most critically acclaimed vampire characters ever created, with dedicated fans who have followed his adventures through more than twenty novels, dozens of short stories, and thousands of years of human history. But of all the women the Count has loved, the most popular is the beautiful, ever-youthful Madelaine.William B. Davis detailing the ups and downs of his career, and the incredible impact the X-Files world has had on his life. Find out more about the book here.
In Commedia della Morte, Saint-Germain learns that Madelaine—now a vampire—has been arrested by France's Revolutionary Tribunal and is soon to lose her head. Desperate to rescue her, the Count sneaks into France with a troupe of actors led by the glamorous Photine, who soon becomes Saint-Germain's mistress. Photine's teenage son, driven by jealousy and revolutionary fervor, betrays the Count. Now Saint-Germain's life, as well as Madelaine's, hangs in the balance, in this darkly romantic historical vampire novel.
C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp writing as Cat Adams provided a sneak preview of the cover for The Eldritch Conspiracy, the 5th book in the excellent Blood Singer series and the 4th book, The Isis Collar isn't even out until March! I have to say I like this cover. Blondes do have more fun.
