To commemorate Joshua Reynolds' new novel Dracula Lives! through Pulpwork Press--which is available on Halloween--I needed to come up with a Dracula themed blog post. Being of an irreverent mind, I thought I'd go with a TMZ style Who'd You Rather opinion poll.
So here's the question, ladies ... and gentlemen: Who'd you rather? Dracula, Wolfman, or Frankenstein?
Dracula - If nothing else, Bela Lugosi is the best dressed among the three. And it seems fashion sense is more and more important when seeking out a man. Albeit, his tastes are a tad more vintage than most, but he's a worldly man nonetheless. And who can argue with a guy who believes in maintaining eye contact and has a great smile?
Wolfman - Maybe you want a man with some hair on his chest. And his back. And his everything else. Lon Chaney might be right for you. Sure, he can be a bit temperamental, but you can usually avert unpleasantness if you schedule your rendezvous by the lunar cycle. If you're a vegetarian, however, there may be some compatibility issues.
Frankenstein - What Boris Karloff lacks in the looks department, he makes up for ... in the ... well, looks aren't everything, let's leave it at that. There's something to be said for the occasional big dumb jock. He's big and brutish and wears a size eleventeen boot, but he has a contemplative side too. Maybe he's not graceful on the dance floor. Maybe cuddling next to a roaring fire is out of the question. But he'll never devour your flesh or suck your blood dry, which is more than can be said for the other two.
So, who'd you rather?
