The Story of the World’s Most Iconic Monster! Dracula: Rise of the Beast

[1]GENESIS OF A MONSTER

Vlad III Dracula. A warleader in a warlike time: brilliant, charismatic, pious. But what became of him? What drove him to become a creature of darkness—Bram Stoker’s cruel, ambitious “Un-Dead”—and what use did he make of this power, through the centuries?

More than a hundred years after the monster’s death, the descendants of the survivors piece together the story— dusty old manuscripts, court reports from the Holy Roman Empire at its height, stories of the Szgany Roma who once served the monster—trying to understand. Because the nightmare is far from over…

Five incredible fantasy authors come together to reveal a side to literature’s greatest monster you’ve never seen before.

Dracula: Rise of the Beast is available now in eBook formats at DriveThruFiction.com [1]!

Contributing authors had this to say about the anthology:

“I’m delighted to have the chance to write about one of gothic fiction’s most enduring characters.”
Adrian Tchaikovsky.

“It’s great to finally see a bunch of Dracula stories from people who did not grow up with the idea of Vampire as a horrifying stranger, but rather as a creature that pops up in the neighbourhood.”
Milena Benini.

“The character of Count Dracula is a legendary icon not only in the horror genre, but in literature in general and it a pleasure, an honour and a privilege to be a part of his hallowed legacy.”
Emil Minchev.

About The Editor: David Thomas Moore
David Thomas Moore was once a frail thing, O Best Beloved, with neither a thick shell nor a poisonous spines nor his unparalleled editorial insight. But after outwitting a tortoise, a platypus and his friend and mentor Jonathan Oliver, he became the extraordinary creature who works for Abaddon Books and lives in Reading, England with his wife and daughter you know today.
