What news? As in what’s new?
A few things, as it turns out. We’re coming out of a busy summer of planning and production and a number of titles are being released. Right now, you can check out The Rerun of Dracula by Ben Ohmart:
The hook is simple: everyone knows that the character of Dracula was based on Vlad “the Impaler” Tepes. The trouble is, he never died. Hollywood, Random House, the Lugosi estate, Francis Ford Coppola, everyone owes him big time for cashing in on his likeness. Tallahassee, Florida might seem like the dumbest place to start a major lawsuit against pretty much the known world, but Vlad, an actual vampire, is more concerned with shaking things up than staying predictable. He has definite goals in mind… The Rerun of Dracula, written with the complete support of the Tepes estate, is the first true chronicle of a dynamic individual with a great mustache and a legitimate reason to sue. Ben Ohmart is the author of several biographies of voice actors, including Paul Frees and Mel Blanc, and runs the small publishing house, BearManor Media.
And coming soon… the lastest volume in our highly popular Palik series of new Jules Verne Translations – Around the World in 8- Days: The 1874 Play by Jules Verne and Adolphe d’Ennery. As I type this blog entry, the galleys are being proofed by experts in four countries and across two continents. Look for all of the skillful translations, thoughtful commentaries, historical perspectives, and timely illustrations that you’ve come to expect from this series.
Stay tuned for more details as they develop.
