  3. Happy Day! It will be a pleasure to read of Genevieve again, although the overwhelming sensation of Anno Dracula – for me, at least – is one of sadness and loss (cheery I know). Perhaps as the series continues and the years fall away for the characters, the jokes/references seem a little hollower, haunted even (tho’ they are integrated with customary brilliance) because those people who do not pass on must adapt until all they do is survive and is that worth it? Can they retain the worthwhile, the *good* aspects of humanity. Interesting that AD is set in a word where vampires thrive and those who are not nosferatu often don’t or go mad, was that metaphor or *prophecy*, Mr Newman?! Enough blithering, well done on completing your mostly excellent AD works. It is a pity I think that you have never used Holmes on-page (rather employing substitutes or metafictive parodies) though understandable in AD’s case, I suppose it would be too obvious for you still it’s a shame nonetheless, and of course by Holmes I don’t mean that ponce Sherlock (uhm, I should imagine you like the BBC thing but it’s not to my taste, obvious *I* may be but Stephens, Cushing, Rathbone, and Jeremy Brett above all tower over the Cumberbatch variant for me! I’m picky I know)
    P.S. Apropos of nothing, I would say that my favourite reference in Anno Dracula is the simple one to Jim Rockford in one of the novellas. Although, watching the Granada Sign of Four today it’s a pity Tonga didn’t appear anywhere, just because… (tho’ perhaps he was in the Moriarty book which I haven’t finished)
