Tropes pertaining to Kulhánek's works:

  • Creator Thumbprint: Pick any Kulhánek novel; chances are, it begins with The Hero, a superhuman, getting assaulted by the villains, forcing him to seek refuge amongst normal folk.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Vládci strachu ("Rulers of Fear") and Cesta krve ("The Path of Blood") are hopelessly out of print and not likely to be reissued.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Any blood suffices and only about once per month. They don't mind sun or holy symbols or pretty much anything except silver. And there is no emo ansgt. Their enemies are "Alchemists", augmented humans that hunt and enslave vampires.
