What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Excellent"

    Along with Anno Dracula (and Dracula Cha Cha Cha) this is irresistible work from Kim Newman. I had only read his seminal Nightmare Movies and had no idea he is such a good novelist.

    Full of every vampire character you have ever though of, and humorous moments (as when Simon Templar appears briefly raising a quizzical eyebrow..)

    Great fun all round and impossible to stop listening to.

    "Well read but........."

    the story is well read by William Gaminara but the story is confusing!! I have started listening to the story twice and now its just something that i'm listening to but not taking in. I thought that this was just my sort of story but you have to try and fill in the gaps with regard to how things came about in the story and only then do you get a sense of what your listening to. I wouldnt listen to anything else by Kim Newman.

    "A Worthy Sequel"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Bloody Red Baron to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Bloody Red Baron to and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of William Gaminara’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good but..."

    As much as I thoroughly enjoyed Anno Dracula, and was prepared for this sequel, something was lacking. I think overall it's hard to keep up the standards in series due in part to the fact that whatever newness made the original stand out, isn't new anymore. I still like the historical allusions and all the blending of real and imaginary/fictional characters, but I think the first one had it, and don't know if I'll go on if more show up in this set. I am looking forward to the Sherlock blend Newman has in Hound of D'Urbervilles and will try it.
