Wolfman, Dracula, and Transylvania

With the new Wolfman movie coming out... and the neverending Twilight saga, it's worth revisiting the traditional home of the baddies: Transylvania. But you don't have to go to eastern Europe; look no further than Kentucky. It's true, Transylvania was the proposed name of a state that overlays much of Kentucky and Tennessee. This quite-serious statehood proposal was originally the idea of Daniel Boone. And yes, Boone was a real person, while Dracula and the Wolfman are not.... I hope. The full story is explained in Lost States--now available for pre-order (at right).
