And it continues. Look for Wuthering Bites with Heathcliff as a vampire possibly by the holidays or early next year.

K I know not many people will enjoy this book out this month...:
http://www.novedadesconhistoria.com/nov ... s-kyriazis
... because its an spanish translation.

But the point is that at last we are getting some translation from Kostas Kyriazis work (Greek historical writer 1920-1991). I've been curious about him for a while and I'd love to see some of his other books translated into something readable. (sorry but my greek is uh... bad :D )
