        Note This author also writes under the pseudonym of Jack Yeovil.An expert on horror and sci fi cinema his books of film criticism include Nightmare Movies and Millennium Movies , Kim Newman s novels draw promiscuously on the tropes of horror, sci fi and fantasy He is complexly and irreverently referential the Dracula sequence Anno Dracula, The Bloody Red Baron and Dracula,Cha Cha Cha not only portrays an alternate world in which the Count conquers Victorian Britain for a while, is the mastermind behind Germany s air aces in World War One and survives into a jetset 1950s of paparazzi and La Dolce Vita, but does so with endless throwaway references that range from Kipling to James Bond, from Edgar Allen Poe to Patricia Highsmith In horror novels such as Bad Dreams and Jago, reality turns out to be endlessly subverted by the powerfully malign His pseudonymous novels, as Jack Yeovil, play elegant games with genre cliche perhaps the best of these is the sword and sorcery novel Drachenfels which takes the prescribed formulae of the games company to whose bible it was written and make them over entirely into a Kim Newman novel Life s Lottery, his most mainstream novel, consists of multiple choice fragments which enable readers to choose the hero s fate and take him into horror, crime and sf storylines or into mundane reality.


    1. Graf Dracula is back! Having been thrown out of power in Britain at the end of Anno Dracula, the Transylvanian bloodsucker has now gained the good graces of Kaiser Wilhelm and launched the world into an all encompassing war. Now it’s 1918 and both sides are anxious to make a big push to end the combat, but this being the newly modern world, the true heroes are the ones who fight in the sky.Essentially this should be the dirt and grime of the Victorian age swapped for the dirt and grime and ter [...]

    2. I didn't enjoy this volume as much as the previous, primarily because of my specific anti-fascination for world wars I and II. Once I got past the first third of the book, and the story had developed beyond the bounds of aerial warfare, I found the story more interesting. The concept of the vampire shape-shifted flying squadron was well-executed, and made this more interesting than a typical WWI alternate history tale of the kind that typical doesn't interest me. The best horrific scene in the b [...]

    3. I read this when first came out in an American import in H/B long before did in the UK. It is a sequal to Anno Dracula but don't need to have read it.This set in WWI but it is 1918 & the Red Barron (not the Snoopy one) this brilliant,a what if.Dracula has moved on to taking over the rest of the world

    4. The second novel in this series sees us move on from the events of England in 1888 and Jack the Ripper.It is now 1914. The Great War is underway between Germany and the rest of Europe. Count von Dracula has fled England after The Terror (in Book One) and is now Graf von Dracula, commander in chief of Germany and Austria-Hungary. Fighting against England and his old enemies Charles Beauregard and the secret Diogenes Club, vampires and humans (‘warm bodies’) are dying in the trenches though th [...]

    5. After the events of Anno Dracula, Dracula has moved to Germany and is effectively running their Great War campaign. Although characters from the first book and indeed various parts of fiction and history do appear, this is a much more enclosed story. The main focus is on Edwin Winthrop, a member of the Diogenes Club instructed by Charles Beauregard, is sent to investigate the Red Baron. Meanwhile, the vampire Edgar Allan Poe has been employed as the biographer of the Red Baron himself and discov [...]

    6. Nos encontramos en una Europa que nunca fue, una Europa en la que Vlad Tepes, Drácula, ha extendido el vampirismo. Estamos ante una ucronía que empezó con ‘El año de Drácula’ (Anno Dracula), donde Drácula se casaba con la Reina Victoria, convirtiéndose el Londres victoriano en su refugio, y donde vampiros y cálidos llegaban a convivir. Se podía decir que el vampirismo era un factor social más, una opción. De esta manera, Kim Newman mezcla ficción y realidad, personajes histórico [...]

    7. I definitely liked it less than the first Anno Dracula book, but I'm still giving it four stars, mainly because the bonus novella at the end was a lot of fun.Regarding The Bloody Red Baron itself, I liked that Kate Reed and Edwin Winthrop, who can be said to take the place of Geneviève and Beauregard, are less stereotypical, more human and more flawed. I liked seeing how people of Beauregard's generation made the transition from the Victorian era to the 1910s (I believe in this AU they have a K [...]

    8. This is the second in Kim Newman’s imagining of a world where vampires are now a part of society and Dracula is a major political figure. He has brought the action forward to the tail end of World War 1 for this. The story revolves around a young spy in the Diogenes Club called Edwin Walthrop who does the bidding of Charles Beauregard, the main protagonist from the first Anno Dracula. He has to try to work out what Dracula, who is now a close consort of the Kaiser, is planning as it becomes ev [...]

    9. Reviewing for Hearts on Fire Reviews.Review: My great thanks to Titan Books, who have reprinted the “Anno Dracula” series by outstanding author Kim Newman. The title translates, of course, from Latin, as “Year of Dracula” (as in “Anno Domini,” or “Year of Our Lord,” the medieval Roman Catholic designation on the calendar). This series takes Dracula, that inimitable, ubiquitous, and arrogant former Eastern European tyrant, from Victorian England (where he was, temporarily, Prince [...]

    10. A ridiculously enjoyable book in a ridiculously enjoyable series. This is the sequel to Anno Dracula, which had Genevieve and Charles Beauregard chase Jack The Ripper through the fog-choked streets of Victorian London, as ruled by the Prince Regent, Dracula. Not to spoil it or anything, but at the end of the book revolution was kindled and Dracula ejected from Britain. Now he's in Germany, running the War for Kaiser Wilhelm. Warm and dead alike are chewed up in the muddy fields of France as the [...]

    11. Although I had read this book in its previous "Avatar", this edition, brought out by the good folks at Titan Books, really works much better. Since the core concept of this novel, set in the alternate universe which is so unlike ours (because Dracula had won there) and yet so similar (we have nearly everything of "this" universe, including Americanised pop-culture!) is rather well-known, I would confine myself simply in gushing about the new things that have been incorporated in this version by [...]

    12. Perhaps the best book in the series. It's got everything: vampires, revenge, sex, dogfights, Kafkaesque bureaucracy with Kafka himself, Edgar Poe as a proto-Nazi, goddamn Dracula, and references to like a hundred books and movies. Newman's writing is vivid and clear enough that I could understand and visualize the aerial battle scenes without knowing anything about plane fights. He also goes full pulp with this one, crafting a story of German mad scientists making the Red Baron and other pilots [...]

    13. Probably more 3.5 stars than a full four, but I enjoyed this; Newman's ability to mash in hundreds of references to various movies, books, and historical personages augments a strong, unsettling story about the possible realities of a vampire-dominated Great War. And he does a great job conveying the subtle, unsettling -wrongness- of a world infested with the nosferatu, without making vampirism a villainous quality in and of itself. Great, grim fun, and I look forward to the next in the series.

    14. The second volume in the Anno Dracula sequence, this lacks the depth of the first volume. What it lacks in that regard it makes up for in narrative drive and excitement. In a novel take on the Red Baron, Dracula has moved from The UK to supporting the German war effort for his own ends.An intense and fun addtion to the corpus of vampire fiction.

    15. He writes rather slowly - I mean, it takes forever for things to happen. The descriptions are overly long. And the last part of the book - it was just tacked on to the end - nothing to do with the main story. But interesting.

    16. One thing I really liked about this was the way in which its retelling of the First World War in the vampiric alternative of our actual history is remade in the image of the Second World War in many ways a kind of telescoping that was very effective.

    17. Nice idea and world-building, but Newman's not the best writer in the world, by any stretch. The bonus novella's fun, though.

    18. Move him out of the sunThe horror of the first World War matches well with the horror of vampires in Newman's blood slick thriller. A cunningly crafted entertainment.

    19. There are actually two books in here, so although I haven't finished the entire volume, I have read the main book here28/01/2018 - The Bloody Red Baron. The follow up to the first Anno Dracula set in the late 1800s, we're now at 1918 and world war one is in full swing. This being an alternative European history, this is a world war where vampires and humans live alongside, and Dracula, having been kicked out of the UK, is now in Germany bending the Kaiser's ear and getting himself high commissio [...]

    20. This book jumps Kim Newman's alternate history forward by 30 years - from 1888 to 1918 - and changes the primary location from Whitechapel to the skies above the Western Front. Unlike many alternate histories, Newman hasn't really attempted to change history in any major way - vampires becoming part of society doesn't stop the First World War, or even change any of the participants.Excluding Dracula, only two characters from the first book play any significant part in this story and, just as in [...]

    21. To me The Bloody Red Baron would be the test on how well the awesome ideas brought fourth in the first Anno Dracula could be used in a series. You see, now I will admit I had my doubts when I stared and I bought the first three books together more on a whim than thinking reasonably. But again my scepticism was proved unfounded. In fact, now that I've read this book I actually think it might be even better than the first on a few aspects, because while the first novel was an original concept and [...]

    22. Kim Newman may not have invented the mash-up genre (but then, he possibly may) but he is undoubtedly its premier virtuoso: In his seminal novel Anno Dracula he presents readers with an appropriately grimy and realistic Victorian London, and then fills it with vampires and a whole host of literary characters. I hesitated quite a while before reading the novel, because even though the concept seemed like fun, I was not sure whether the execution would live up to it. As it turned out, it did, and t [...]

    23. A blistering sequel to Anno Dracula's colourful Victorian mayhem, The Bloody Red Baron is a more brutal and serious-minded work. Still huge amounts of fun, of course, particularly for the inter-meta-textual pulp/vampire fiction aficionados (like me), but the conflation of vampirism with the gung-ho, leading-from-the-rear, bloody-minded idiocy of Haig, Churchill et al is genius. There's a chapter near the end where they're all pushing coloured blocks around on a gigantic map, revelling in the sla [...]

    24. Definitely not as good as the first book in the series. The real great thing about reading the first Anno Dracula novel was that it had so many literary characters and figures that I knew, coming together to defeat a common enemy. Sort of like a "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"; in this book, I knew hardly any of the characters/references from other novels. So that was disappointing. That being said, it is a very interesting re-inventing of WWI, and really picks up after the first third of th [...]

    25. Excellent addition to the Anno Dracula series. This time, it's World War I and vampires are fighting on both sides of the conflict.As per usual, the cost of drop in characters is high and fairly funny.An excellent read. I sat down and read it all the way through.

    26. In realtà per questo libro non c'è niente di diverso da dire rispetto al commento che ho fatto per il primo libro della serie, stessi pregi e stessi difetti. Anche qui quindi una buona riuscita nel creare questa realtà alternativa, nonostante il periodo storico scelto stavolta non fosse dei più facili, ma c'è sempre la sensazione di un lavoro frettoloso. Mi sembra di avere notato stavolta un numero minore di citazioni storiche e letterarie, ma è anche possibile che alcune mi siano sfuggite [...]

    27. Continua la historia alterna de Anno Dracula. Europa, 1918. El príncipe Drácula, después de escapar de la prisión en Inglaterra, ahora se encuentra al mando de los ejércitos del Káiser en la Gran Guerra. Una de sus principales armas de terror y dominio es la legendaria unidad áerea Jagdgeschwader 1, en especial su imbatible lider Manfred von Richthofen, el Barón Rojo. Alemania se encuentra a la vanguardia en la ciencia de aprovechar las habilidades vampíricas para ganar la guerra. Y que [...]

    28. Fantastic sequelExtremely entertaining sequel to Anno Dracula set during World War 1. The references to many contemporary characters and other vampire fiction are extremely clever and well placed.
