In Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, Dracula relocates from Tran­syl­va­nia to London. Asking themselves, what would Dracula have done in London before he was killed by Van Helsing, 18 authors wrote un­con­nect­ed short stories. Dracula meets the Prince of Wales, he is observed by the servants, he terrorizes Aleister Crowley and Charles Fort and Ellen Terry, he even takes the lead in the Pirates of Penzance.

The stories are uneven. None is out­stand­ing.
