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)
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.
