In what the Cleveland Plain Dealer is calling a “Battle of the Vamps” and “a strange feud between the authors of competing vampire tomes,” a new Dracula “memoir” is squaring off against the Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt “sequel” DRACULA: THE UNDEAD in a bloodthirsty battle to the death.
“I’m not sure I know what the Cleveland Plain Dealer is on about,” says R. H. Greene, credited as the “editor” of INCARNADINE: THE TRUE MEMOIRS OF COUNT DRACULA, a book whose conceit is that it was written byDracula himself. “I’ve got nothing against some guy with the Stoker surname trying to re-establish the family `brand,’ if that’s what this is.
“I guess it comes down to who you trust to expand the story of Dracula,” Greene adds wryly. “A distant relation of Bram Stoker? Or Dracula himself?”
The "Vampire Feud" was reported on in the Plain Dealer's October 8 "Pop Ten" of pop culture trends to watch, coming in at number 2. The entire "Pop Ten" list can be viewed here.
