DRACULA COMES TO NEW YORK: Kim Newman returns to one of the great bestselling vampire tales of the modern era.

DRACULA COMES TO NEW YORK

Transylvania 1976 and the vampire Kate Reed is on the set of Francis Ford Coppola's troubled production of Dracula. Fallen from grace and driven from the British Empire, the Count himself seems long gone. A relic of the past. But when Kate helps a young vampire outcast begin a new life in America, a fresh monster is born. The boy reinvents himself as Johnny Pop and makes his name selling a dangerously addictive drug that confers vampire powers on its users. As Johnny stalks the streets of Manhattan and Hollywood, sinking his fangs ever deeper into the zeitgeist of 1980s America, it seems the past might not be dead after all...

Fourth installment of Newman's alternative "history" world where Dracula survived and vampires "came out". Supposedly killed off in the third novel, one of Dracula's gets is ambitious for power, comes to America and gets to meet all sorts of famous people from the late quarter of the 20th century. Real life celebrities, and fictionalized version of literary and movie vampires make cameo appearances, and it is fun trying to spot them. This book isn't a novel per se, but a series of short stories that were published in the past, and edited into tome, so it can feel a bit disjointed at times. It is also a good idea to read the previous novels first.
