Dracula Battles Hitler This October

Screenwriter Patrick Sheane Duncan (who penned Mr. Holland’s Opus, Courage Under Fire, and Nick of Time) is releasing his first novel this October; it’s an unlikely reimagining of Bram Stoker’s Dracula which finds the Dark Prince resurrected in order to battle Nazi troops on the fields of Transylvania. When Hitler here’s about Vlad’s exploits, he wants nothing more than to harness the vampire’s immortality for himself.

Dracula vs. Hitler is already available for pre-order on Amazon.


A review on Dread Central states:

The novel is written in an epistolary format like Stoker’s original tale — letters, journal entries, and newspaper clippings guide the reader through the most epic battle in centuries, revealing the hearts and minds of Van Helsing, Adolf Hitler, and Prince Dracula himself. As clever and well-researched as it is chilling and captivating, Dracula vs. Hitler is an enthralling yarn, drenched in authentic history, eerie intrigue, and of course, blood.

Dracula vs. Hitler isn’t the only unlikely literary mash-up hitting shelves in 2016. On July 12th, Paul Kane’s novel Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell will be available for purchase. Kane’s novel pits Arthur Conan Doyle’s seminal sleuth against Clive Barker’s Cenobites.


Official Synopsis: Sherlock Holmes faces his greatest challenge yet when he meets the Cenobites, the infamous servants of hell. Late 1895, and Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr John Watson are called upon to investigate a missing persons case. On the face of it, this seems like a mystery that Holmes might relish – as the person in question vanished from a locked room – and something to occupy him other than testing the limits of his mind and body. But this is just the start of an investigation that will draw the pair into contact with a shadowy organization talked about in whispers and known only as ‘The Order of the Gash’. As more and more people go missing in a similar fashion, the clues point to a sinister asylum in France and to the underworld of London. However, it is an altogether different underworld that Holmes will soon discover – as he finds himself face to face not only with those followers who do the Order’s bidding on Earth, but those who serve it in Hell: the Cenobites…
