A Must Read For Fans of the Old Universal Monster Films!

Rovin captures brilliantly the feel of the original Universal Classics. He ties together all original tales and brings them forward into the present time with plausible explanations.

The book begins at the castle in Florida immediately after the conclusion to the film Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.  We learn that the fall from the high window onto the rock did not kill either Dracula or the Wolfman.  The two end up bitter enemies throughout the book and the Wolfman continues his search for death.

Rovin solves some of the unexplained mysteries from the original tales (ex. why Bela turned into an actual wolf rather than a wolf man in the original film). It does get a little gory towards the end. Rovin brings everything to a satisfactory close but gives some tidbits at the end for a sequel. Hopefully the demand will be there for one.
