It has the slightly spurious honour of being the only Dracula sequel approved of by a member of the Bram Stoker family, Dacre Stoker, but that’s a temporary thing. I reckon I could do my own sequel and get some four year old great great great Stoker neice, maybe Britney Stoker, to approve of mine if I gave her an Iggle Piggle in return.

The story is set six months on from the Count Dracula’s death, and six months before the birth of Jonathan and Mina’s son, Quincey, with the Countess Dracule arriving in London to avenge and save the Count’s spirit, as she arrives in London seeking vengeance.

The book has forewords from Dacre Stoker, Ian Holt and Leslie S Klinger and is published in November.
