Young solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to the remote
mountains of Transylvania to meet with Count Vladimir Dracula. The young man barely escapes with his
life. Dracula journeys to England where
he makes the acquaintance of Harker’s beloved Wilhelmina Murray and her friend
Lucy Westenra. And then the plot
thickens. It should be great fun to read
around the holiday.
The Dracula novels
are inspired by the real Count Vlad Dracula 1431-1476. He was a hero to his people and feared by his
enemies. If you would like to read a
more modern story featuring the famous Transylvanian, The Historian by
Elizabeth Kostova is an award winning, beautifully written story that is hard
to put down.
In 1897 Bram Stoker wrote a classic horror story that has spawned hundreds of imitators but has never been surpassed. From Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire to such writers as Stephenie Meyer, the story of the vampire--and the godfather of them all, Dracula--lives on. Compelling, chilling, engrossing, filled with suspense and fear--this is a tale you can't put down. This edition includes an interview with Bram Stoker, as well as a rare and exciting prologue that Stoker wrote that was removed by the original publisher in an effort to shorten the book.
