Crossover Cover: Dracula's Ghost


Detective Jennifer Grail and occult investigator Carter Decamp once again do battle with Dracula. Jen borrows Kharrn’s sword from Decamp. Mircalla Karnstein, aka Carla Lim and Carmilla, seeks to resurrect Dracula. Decamp consults the Ruthvenian, and plans to check Pursuivant’s Vampiricon. Decamp arranges for Jen to meet with a contact of Wade Griffin, who is in a relationship with Decamp’s apprentice Charon. Decamp reminds Jen of what Victor told them about Dracula’s first resurrection. Jennifer Grail, Carter Decamp, and Kharrn are recurring characters in Rutledge’s work. Dracula should need no explanation. Mircalla “Carmilla” Karnstein is from J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s “Carmilla.” The Ruthvenian is a tome of vampire lore from the connected works of Donald F. Glut. Judge Pursuivant is one of Manly Wade Wellman’s occult detectives. The Vampiricon is mentioned in the Pursuivant stories. Wade Griffin and Charon are from James A. Moore and Rutledge’s Griffin and Price series, in which Decamp is a supporting character. Dracula’s Revenge had Jen and Decamp fighting Dracula alongside the Frankenstein Monster, who had adopted his creator’s first name, Victor.

This crossover is one of over a thousand covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, coming this summer from Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
