Black and Deep Desires: William Shakespeare, Vampire Hunter. By, of all people, Graham Holderness.

http://www.tophat-books.com/books/black-deep-desires

From the website:

As the novel opens, William Shakespeare, recusant Catholic, joins Guy Fawkes and his cluster of co-conspirators in a plot to dig under the walls of parliament, to plant enough gunpowder to kill the King. When the plotters hit a wall (quite literally), Fawkes heads to Europe to find workers, and is eventually led to a shadowy eastern European aristocrat, who offers him a small company of strange nocturnal labourers, who travel to England in wooden boxes.

*pun actually not intended, but I like it, so I'm keeping it.
