A Belgrade tale of vampires, shortlisted for the most prestigious Serbian literary award

Count Otto von Hausburg and his devoted servant are sent to Belgrade by the Austrian monarchy to investigate troubling reports of vampires. There they find a deeply frightened populace who are willing to believe the Count is the devil incarnate. Perhaps they are right. Novakovic brilliantly captures the atmosphere of the Balkans in the 18th century and offers up a playful twist on the Gothic imagination.


"Fear and His Servant is the story of the hunt for vampires and the violence and terror that such a hunt brings." —Quarterly Conversations
