Review: THE SECRET LIFE OF LAZLO, COUNT DRACULAThe debut novel by Roderick Anscombe kinda bugged me at first, and I mean “at first” as in, before I ever read it.

Throughout the country and all over the world, a hidden subculture of people believe they are real vampires. Doctors caution that ingesting or donating blood without the proper medical equipment is very dangerous, as it puts participants at risk for infectious diseases like HIV and hepatitis. In fiction from the classic novel, "Dracula" to the HBO hit series "True Blood," vampires are portrayed as immortal predators with supernatural powers. People who identify as vampires often meet at underground clubs, but "they're all over the place," said Ramsland. Like Kiera, Sylvere, who likes to feed on creative energy, agreed to demonstrate her typical feeding. Sylvere put her hand on her husband's chest and bit him on the neck -- not hard enough to draw blood because she said she only needs the energy. Some self-described vampires have formed councils and associations through which they network with one another.

Written in the first person, in the form of entries from Lazlo’s journal, the book does a good job of capturing the inner tortures and struggles of such an unhinged mind. He has written, produced and directed (and occasionally acted in) over a dozen plays, most of them in the Horror and Crime genres.
People who describe themselves as real-life vampires have found ways to live quietly among us.
I feed predominantly from crowds, so as not to cause harm," said Kiera, a founding member of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance. Other vampires known as "sanguinarians" or "blood-drinkers" claim to feed on the blood of consenting donors. They say they are convinced they are different from the normal humans they call "mundanes" and hope one day medical science will find out why. My initial take on it was, here’s a guy trying to cash in on the Dracula name, but his book really has nothing to do with Dracula.
It’s right up there with Poe’s THE TELL-TALE HEART in this regard, and considering the esteem in which I hold Poe, this is a grand compliment indeed. His original drama DRACULA: LORD OF THE VAMPIRES, is available to theatrical groups to perform ROYALTY FREE.

To offset this energy imbalance, they say they need to feed on other people's energy or blood.
Even after reading the book, and enjoying it, I have to admit this is still an accurate summation. I was just disappointed to find not even a wink to Stoker’s monster, not even an in-joke, nothing at all familiar. The Count Dracula in this book is NOT the Dracula from the novel by Bram Stoker or the vampire from the movies, nor is it inspired by the historical Dracula, Vlad III of Wallachia (aka “The Impaler”).
Lazlo, the murderer, would have been just as scary and just as pitiable if the writer had chosen to call him the Count of Monte Cristo. In fact there is no connection at all, save for the book’s title and its setting, in Transylvania.
This particular Count Dracula is not a vampire but a serial killer, and this book could just as easily have been written, this story told, without using the “D” word at all.
