The War Doctor John Hurt's character travels back in time and bumps into some famous people' - or something..... :?

The ultimate weapon, which was meant to be safe for humankind, produces global side-effects, including time slides and disappearances. The scientist behind the project and his car are transported from the year 2031 to 1817's Switzerland, where he finds Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his contemporaries.

I read that once. It made about as much sense of most of BWA's work, in my opinion (I.e. not very much).
"[this story] dates from the period in which science fiction fans did not take themselves quite so seriously as nowadays, and those who made religion from an enthusiasm were generally mocked for it." -- Michael Moorcock, from the introduction to "Elric at the End of Time" (1983). Lucky that comment could never be applied to modern SF fans... :roll:

I remember playing this (and some of it's sequel) on PS1......


7 Years have passed since Dracula was destroyed by the Hand of Quincey P. Morris and Johnathan Harker.
All evil seemed to be driven from Minas soul.
One faithful Day Mina leaves London for Transylvania as she hears Dracula calling for her.
We play as Johnathan Harker and our adventure starts here.
Welcome to the land of the King of Vampires!

I have started an audio book of Dracula. It's some sort of free version that has a different narrator for every chapter. The chapter I am currently listening to is narrated by somebody with a strong US accent trying to do a character in what I think is supposed to be a Scottish accent, and it is incomprehensible. :roll:
