I'm ancient enough to remember when that was published, which would have been when I was in high school (among his enormous output, Saberhagen also wrote the novelization of Coppola's Dracula film).

Yes, giving Dracula a voice and a tale told by a vampire rather than a a tale told about a vampire... this shift dates back to the 70s doesn't it!

I want a Dracula narrative where MINA is the hero, and Dracula is presented as the arrogant entitled vaguely specialized *predator* he’s written as. I guess I’ll have to write it myself.

This is not new alas it happened in the C20th with the Dracula Tapes when the vampire got to tell his own story...... Dracula will be “the hero of his own story” in radical reinterpretation by Sherlock creators

Some Immortelles that decorate tombs and graves are floral wreaths or displays made of porcelain like this piece in Montparnasse cemetery, Paris

ORANGEY. The most famous feline actor of all time. Orangey gets a fantastic first credit as 'dynamic, scintillating personality RHUBARB by special arrangement with the S.P.C.A’ (Rhubarb, Rhubarb, 1951). He went on to star as no name in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1961

THE BLACK CAT. 1962 Tales of Terror adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's sardonic tale. Peter Lorre is the man who walls up his unfaithful wife and her cat. But the cat’s subsequent cries years later lead to the discovery of his crime. You could call it the Telltale Cat!

‘Immortelles’ are floral tributes to the Dead made to last more permanently than fresh flowers. In France, from the 19thc, beautiful wreaths of beaded flowers like these were used to decorate tombs & graves.

CAN ANYONE OUT THIS? When Emily died Charlotte stitched a sprig of heather into her mourning shoes using her dead sister’s hair. The heather symbolised solitude and of course the heath Emily had so loved. A act of pure love; dark & heartbreaking

Oh that is very fine indeed ...but not quite as stunning as this gothtastic version below from the second printing. I am keen on the French Polidori spin offs and I've have just ordered Lord Ruthwen ou les vampires a 2 vol novelisation from 1820:-)
