The Anno Dracula Character Guide....

....compiled by myself and various diverse hands, gets a shout out in Leslie Klinger's The New Annotated Dracula.

Cool.

An updated version will appear as an addendum in Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World (MonkeyBrain Books, 2010).

Congrats, Win! Coincidentally, I was looking through my copy of JUDGMENT OF TEARS earlier this week. What a great series. Kim Newman's a terrific author (and one of my friends on Facebook :)

Laura was telling me about this book, and now I have an extra reason for wanting it. Very nice! At first I thought the title of the book you were talking about was "The New Anno Dracula." ;-)

Sean, thanks. :-) I'm not sure I've mentioned it before, but Kim very kindly contributed the Introduction to CROSSOVERS, for which I'm very grateful. The book will also have a foreword by another well-known crossover expert. :-)

Chris, if only there *was* a new Anno Dracula book on the way! There are several Johnny Alucard stories which Kim has said he means to combine and expand into a fourth novel, but it's been a long time... I still hold out hope, though.

Leslie Klinger is appearing next Monday at the 2008 annual meeting of the "Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections" at the University of Minnesota. I'll get him to sign his Dracula book.
