Book Rec: Dracula Series by Fred Saberhagen

Tags

Being geeks, you will probably know Fred Saberhagen, either from his Berserker series, or his Book of Swords series. (My personal favorite. If you haven’t read it, you’re totally missing out, run right out and buy it.)

The Dracula series, however seems to be a bit more obscure. I’d never heard of it until I set my reading goal for the year (100) and focus (vampires). I’ve read a LOT of vampire books in the last 9 months. I read the entire Ann Rice series. No offense to any fans out there, but ugh. When I saw that one of my favorite authors had written not only a vampire series, but one about Dracula, I was intrigued. So I got them all and sat down with a slightly biased, but open mind.

As I started “The Dracula Tape” the first thought that ran through my head was “Mr. Saberhagen WTF did you DO?!” It was Roshamon but badly done. However, I kept reading because his style will just draw you in. I started to see what is plan was, to not really make Dracula an “anti-hero”, but at least a semi-protagonist. He’s not one you will necessarily love, or even love to hate, he’s rather one that you will enjoy (I think) trying to understand. Saberhagen keeps much of the Tepes lore in the character which can be amusing in the various centuries the books take place.

So, while I still haven’t found my All Time Favorite Vampire series, I found one that I actually liked better than I thought I would. And IMHO it’s a much better read than the Rice books.

Port Con!!!

We’re going to be filming and recording a live panel podcast alongside you, the listener! 3.5 Geeks is a semi-biweekly podcast focusing on the excitement of being a geek in this day and age and all the things that being a geek means to us and to you. “If you can geek out about it, we’ll talk about it.” Anime, video games, TV, movies, superheroes, even history and spirituality and progressive social issues, we attempt to tackle them all in our lunkheaded, slapdash, makeshift way– and to have fun doing it! For three years, 3.5 Geeks has heralded the rise of geekdom and championed kindness to our fellow geeks, and we live for and love interacting with our audience! Hosted by Nathan Towns and co-hosted by Matthew I. Bishop and Kimber McLeod, we know that geekdom is serious business, but so help us we can’t keep a straight face!

3.5 Geeks are filming and recording a live podcast full of geekery and audience engagement!
