WHERE ONCE POE WALKED by HP Lovecraft


One master of the macabre salutes another in eerie verse....


WHERE ONCE POE WALKED
by HP Lovecraft

Eternal brood the shadows on this ground,
Dreaming of centuries that have gone before;
Great elms rise solemnly by slab and mound,
Arched high above a hidden world of yore.
Round all the scene a light of memory plays,
And dead leaves whisper of departed days,
Longing for sights and sounds that are no more.

Lonely and sad, a specter glides along
Aisles where of old his living footsteps fell;
No common glance discerns him, though his song
Peals down through time with a mysterious spell.
Only the few who sorcery's secret know,
Espy amidst these tombs the shade of Poe.

JOHNNY ALUCARD (2013) by Kim Newman



Fallen from grace, driven from the British Empire, and beheaded in Italy at the close of the '50s in previous instalments, Dracula seems long dead and long gone. A historical icon, but a relic of the past. Yet, when vampire boy Johnny Alucard descends upon America, stalking the streets of New York and Hollywood, haunting the lives of the rich and famous, from Sid and Nancy to Andy Warhol, Orson Welles, and Francis Ford Coppola, sinking his fangs ever deeper into the zeitgeist of 1980s America, it seems the past might not be dead after all...

After literally years in the making, at long last the next installment of Kim Newman's Anno Dracula saga, Johnny Alucard is here!
