He has released the series in two arcs, one that follows Dracula the man and the other following Dracula the vampire.

It was in his late teens that he discovered Dracula the man and the love affair began from there. An avid lover of history, he studied the period in which the real historical Vlad Dracula lived, 15th Century Balkan, for many years. It f

RIP SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE (1922-2015)

Lee 1

Nothing makes me sadder than the loss of a creative genius, when a great talent shall add nothing further to a great body of work. Last week on June 7th, we lost one of the great icons of cinema, Sir Christopher Lee.

Romance is every thought, gesture, and deed on your part to make another feel special, even if only for a moment. For a moment can last a lifetime in the heart of the recipient, be that the one you love, or a complete stranger.”

Shane O'Neill Not likely, buddy. They're The Dracula Chronicles, not the Andrei Chronicles. I am trying to further develop his story, though.

Hi Paddy, yes you know the drill... prequel for The Path To Decay...


message 12: by Paddy

Paddy Hi Shane,
the book,"Lamb of God", is only 45 pages long. Will the same 45 pages start the chronicle "the path to decay" because I don't want to buy a wind up like I did with "birth of a monster" only to find I was reading it again at the start of "bound by blood vol1". I'd much prefer to wait, and I hope it's not to long because just reading the description of "lamb of God" has got me salivating!
Obviously if it is a stand alone novella I will read it with relish, but not at the cost of the new chronicle. Cheers Paddy.

Hi Patricia

How wonderful that must have been. I've always wanted to meet him, though my chances are slim now that he has turned 90. An amazing man though.

Thanks. Are you planning on reading them then?
