  • I'll be appearing at Waterstone's Piccadilly on October 31st, with comics artists Paul McCaffrey and Bambos Georgiou, discussing my new Anno Dracula novel One Thousand Monsters and the comic book collection Seven Days in Mayhem.  Booking now open.     An evening with Kim Newman in conversation with Paul McCaffrey and Bambos Georgiou Tuesday 31st October 19:00 - 20:30 at London - Piccadilly Anno Dracula - One Thousand Monsters (Paperback) Kim Newman Anno Dracula (Paperback) Kim Newman Anno Dracula - 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem (Paperback) Kim NewmanPaul McCaffrey A night of Halloween delights as Kim Newman discusses the latest instalments to the bestselling Anno Dracula series, with a brand-new novel Anno Dracula: One Thousand Monsters and the release of the first collection of the Anno Dracula comics, Anno Dracula - 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem. Anno Dracula: One Thousand Monsters sees the return of fan favourite character Genevieve:   In 1899 a group of vampires, exiled from a Great Britain ruled by Prince Dracula, arrive in Japan. They are welcomed in Yokai Town: the district of Tokyo set aside for Japan’s own vampires – an altogether strange and less human-seeming breed than the nosferatu of Europe. Genevieve and her undead comrades are forced to face new enemies and the horrors hidden within the Temple of One Thousand Monsters…   The author will also be joined by artists Paul McCaffrey and Bambos Georgiou, two of the creative team behind the art of the Anno Dracula comics, to discuss bringing the world of Anno Dracula to a new medium.   Prince Dracula has ruled Great Britain for ten years, spreading vampirism through every level of society. On the eve of Dracula’s Jubilee, radical forces gather to oppose the tyrant. Kate Reed, vampire journalist and free-thinker, takes a seat on the revolutionary Council of Seven Days, though she learns that the anarchist group harbors a traitor in its midst. The Grey Men, Dracula’s dreaded secret police, have been ordered to quash all resistance to the rule of the arch-vampire.   Anno Dracula - 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem will be available as an exclusive early bookstore release at the event. Tickets for this event cost £8/£6 with a waterstones card and include a glass of wine/soft drink and £3 off the price of the authors books on the evening.
