THE RETURN OF LORD RUTHVEN (STAGE PLAY)
by Alexandre Dumas
adapted by Frank J. Morlock

cover by David Rabbitte

Ruthven is a demon,
Ruthven is a vampire!
His Love is Death!

The implacable Lord Ruthven returns in Volume 2 in a new, horror-filled story where the deadliest vampire of all comes face-to-face with an even more fearsome enemy -- Zizka, a female Ghoul of great necromantic powers. Both Ruthven and Zizka covet the same humans. The shadow-filled castles of Europe become the stage for the ultimate confrontation between Vampire and Ghoul--and those who dare defy them!
