DRACULA LIVES!


Hey! Cruise on over to Joshua Reynold's blog and check out the first chapter of his novel DRACULA LIVES! Cover looks great, doesn't it? Wonder who did the artwork? ;) ;).

Then head on over to the Pulpwork Press website and buy a copy because it is a fabulous book!

Tell 'em M.D. sent ya.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

I love that cover and the concept of that book. Vampires in Hollywood? In the 30s? Who else BUT brilliant wunderkind Orson Welles would be fighting them.

I wonder if Max Shreck - the genius actor from the silent Nosferatu is a part of this tale.

Did you ever read about his acting 'process'. I love the movie they made about that tale with Willem Dafoe as Schreck and John Malcovich as director F.W. Murnau. It postulated that Shreck was a REAL vampire playing a vampire in the movie. As an actor, Max Shreck did strange things that would certainly have given people the impression that he was one of the undead.

Both 'Shadows' and 'Nosferatu' are amoung my favorite films.

Welles isn;t a character in the book, but there is this shadowy, enigmatic character named Lime and the author though it appropriate that I used Welles as the reference for that character.

Nosferatu is one of my favourite movies. I had heard about Max Schrek's acting process and I liked the idea of Shadow of the Vampire, but was kind of disappointed with that film on the whole, despite Willem Dafoe's performance

Wasn't Harry Lime a character played by Wells in the Joseph Conrad movie, the Third Man?

Exactly.
