A brand-new edition with an additional novella, this critically-acclaimed, best-selling sequel to Anno Dracula will keep you mesmerised from beginning to end.
It is 1918 and Dracula is commander-in-chief of the armies of Germany and Austria-Hungary. The war of the great powers in Europe is also a war between the living and the dead. As ever, the Diogenes Club is at the heart of British Intelligence and Charles Beauregard and his protégé Edwin Winthrop go head-to-head with the lethal vampire flying machine that is The Bloody Red Baron...
Written by popular novelist and movie critic Kim Newman, The Bloody Red Baron takes the story forward into the 20th century.
"Stephen King assumes we hate vampires; Anne Rice makes it safe to love them, because they hate themselves. Kim Newman suspects that most of us live with them… Anno Dracula is the definitive account of that post-modern species, the self-obsessed undead.” -(New York Times)
“Powerful...compelling entertainment...a fiendishly clever banquet of dark treats.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Politics, horror, and romance are woven together in this brilliantly imagined and realized novel. Newman's prose is a delight, his attention to detail is spellbinding." (Time Out)

A Worthy Sequel
Better? No. But it is a great companion to the print version. The depth of the presented world forces me to constantly look things up if I'm using the print copy, but the audio version allows me to just enjoy the story for what it is.
The only thing I could compare this too is the rest of Anno Dracula line and other works that toe the Wold Newton line such as Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
This performance is easily as good as the one he offered for Anno Dracula. I was happy to have him back for this one. It makes the experience that much better when you have a quality narrator across an entire series.
Like Anno Dracula before it, this book is a lot of fun. The more you know about classic literature and World War I history, the better it gets as there's a lot of geekery to be had. If you don't know any of it, don't let that scare you away. This book is so much fun, it'll make you want to learn more to see how it fits together. When you get in that mood for "something different," this series fits the bill perfectly.
