Written by Kim Newman, Anno Dracula is a series of novels which began with the premise "what if Dracula won his battle with Van Helsing's would-be vampire slayers?" In this new timeline Dracula turned Queen Victoria into his undead bride, opening up Britain to vampires from around the world. The premise allowed Newman to include cameos from vampires from multiple different stories, as well as those from other popular fictions of the time. Subsequent volumes of the series moved the action forward in time and across the world, to the battlefields of World War One (Bloody Red Baron), Rome in the late 1950s (Dracula Cha Cha Cha, a.k.a. Judgement of Tears), 1980s America (Johnny Alucard), and late 19th century Japan (One Thousand Monsters). It also spawned a spin-off comic miniseries from Titan Comics, Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem.
