Anno Dracula is an alternate history novel by British writer Kim Newman. Set in London during 1888, Queen Victoria has remarried, taking Vlad Tapes – better known as Count Dracula – as her new consort. England is fast becoming a police state, with vampires advancing both socially and politically whilst humans – “the warm” – face the grim decision of whether to “turn”, or brave an existence as a human being living outnumbered amongst the un-dead.
