OVERVIEW: Bound in tye-dye denim. Slipcased in the same material. Signed by all contributors. The signature page has to be one of the most unique I've ever seen: If you can imagine a thin slice of shaved wood, with grain, this is what is signed. An original idea for the whole package. Endpapers by Tim Powers. Only 500 copies produced. This is #67.
When Michael Crawford discovers his bride brutally murdered in their wedding bed, he is forced to flee not only to prove his innocence but to avoid the deadly embrace of a vampire who has claimed him as her true bridegroom. Joining forces with Byron, Keats, and Shelley in a desperate journey that crisscrosses Europe, Crawford desperately seeks his freedom from this vengeful lover who haunts his dreams and will not rest until she destroys all that he cherishes. Told in the guise of a secret history, this tale of passion and terror brilliantly evokes the nineteenth century. The chilling horror and adventure blend to create a riveting romantic fantasy.
