- ON THIS DAY January 15, 1900, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “’Dracula’ by Bram Stoker is the name of a book from the pen of the accomplished manager of the Lyceum Theater, London, and of the dramatic companies headed by Sir Henry Irving and Ellen Terry. The publishers are the Doubleday & McClure Company, New York, and the chaste and attractive work of the printer and binder is a worthy setting of the clear thought, the weird imagination and the reverential spirit of a volume of originality, interest and power. The story has been issued both in Great Britain and America for several weeks, but more than acknowledgement of its appearance has not yet been made in many quarters, for it requires, while it rewards, very careful reading, since its point of view or of treatment is novel, profound and startling.” #Dracula #BramStoker #OTD #novels @brooklyndailyeagle

BQ ✒ - "He should pity the short lived warmkind; they could never know what it was to master the skies, to taste the blood of a foe, to drink the light of the moon"
Summary 📚 - It's 1918 and Graf von Dracula is commander in chief of the armies of Germany and Austria-Hungary. Caught up in the conflict, Charles Beauregard, his protegè Edwin Winthrop and vampire reporter Kate Reed go head to head with Dracula's lethal flying machine - The Bloody Red Baron
I read Anno Dracula last year for the first time and fell in love with Kim Newman's world 🧛♂️ This was the follow up and it did not dissapoint!
1.✔I primarily fell in love with Newman's blend of fictional and historic characters within a notable historic period (history being bended to accommodate the reign of Dracula). This is a very different setting to the first book. Before it was set during Jack the Ripper's London. This book was set during WW1 specifically focussing on the war in the sky 🛩 Kim Newman has really done his research on the time period to an outstanding degree, mixing successfully history with fantastical elements
2.✔I loved the return of favourite characters such as Charles Beauregard amongst new introductions such as Edgar Allen Poe. Newman always has a large amount of characters simultaously moving through his writing, but he gives each the development they deserve to allow the reader to become attached and engrossed. Some authors find this difficult with so many characters, but not Newman!
3 ✔I enjoyed the novella at the end bringing back the much loved Genevieve into the world of Newman. The novella "Vampire Romance" was a lot more fun and lighthearted then the main book, which was a nice change from the heavy epic war tale just told
Overall, a fun read that I recommend for those that love historical/fantasy fiction blends !

- “Ognuna delle quaranta case, oltre alla collocazione geografica è svelata nei suoi più reconditi segreti abitativi, nella sua conformazione, nel suo essere teatro delle azioni orrende compiute al suo interno. Un atto d’amore incondizionato nei confronti della letteratura e del cinema d’orrore”

- Trilogía de "Hotel Transylvania (Hotel Transilvania)" de Genndy Tartakovsky (2012, 2015, 2018).
Trilogía en Blu-Ray de la saga de animación, presentada en un estuche amaray en tres discos repletos de extras, editada por @sonypicturesvideo
Los monstruos ya tienen un lugar para ir de vacaciones y descansar en paz. Este es el Hotel Transilvania, un terrorífico pero suntuoso lugar regentado por el mismísimo Conde Drácula.
En este enclave no solo podemos encontrar a seres tan famosos como el Hombre Invisible, Cuasimodo, Frankenstein, la Momia, o el Hombre Lobo, sino que aquí también vive Mavis, la hija de Drácula.
La joven adolescente ha estado siempre superprotegida por su padre, quien intenta frenar a toda costa su espíritu aventurero mediante extrañas historias. El cometido de Drácula se cumple a la perfeccción, hasta que Jonathan, un chico humano de veintiún años, aparece de pronto en el hotel. El chico se enamora perdidamente de Mavis y comenzará a cortejarla, algo que al Príncipe de las Tinieblas le pondrá de muy mal humor.
