1456, the night of Vlad’s coronation: a dastardly plot, a joint venture between the Ottoman Empire and Catholic Hungary to kill the Impaler’s beloved, sets off some of the worst atrocities in history, enshrining the name Dracula as a synonym for terror.

He drank the blood of his victims, and filled the castles of the land with wretches destined for the stake: Scourge of the Saxons, champion of the peasants, national hero who saved his country from Islamic conquest, Vlad was all of these, and much, much more... His name has become a byword for cruelty, Vlad’s draconian policies the horror of Europe.

But who was the man behind the legend? Written off by historians, the Dacians were thought to have vanished immediately after the Roman conquest of Dacia, but Vlad, Son of the Devil, would revive the ancient Gaulish pride, bringing hope to the oppressed Wallach remnants of Transylvania through a dastardly series of impalements: he would become known in Romanian as Vlad Țepeș, the Impaler! A man more terrifying than any vampire.

Albert A. Ernst, fifty-four, hails from Glaslyn, Saskatchewan, Canada, and has studied, as a hobby, over thirty Indo-European and non-Aryan languages as diverse as Mandarin, Japanese, Gaelic and Welsh. He has also lived on Vancouver Island, off-grid, for sixteen years. Mr Ernst spent the summer of ’92 touring various ancient sites in England, from medieval castle ruins to stately homes, hillforts, and megalithic monuments. Formerly employed with L&M Wood Products, Sask., as a trimsaw operator for 14 years, he is now semi-retired to work on further writing projects. Operating a hybrid 1.1 kw solar/wind array, producing his own power, Albert’s hobbies include gardening, playing guitar, reading, writing, exploring abandoned farmhouses on motorcycle, and listening to heavy metal music!
