Dracula is one of the great literary classics of our time. A novel which defined the vampire and which has gone on to inspire countless films, television shows, comics, and other novels.
Dacre Stoker is the international bestselling author of Dracul, the official prequel to Dracula. He is also the great grand-nephew of Bram Stoker himself, so is perfectly placed to offer this selection of notes and observations on the writing and development of Dracula.
The book includes writing by Bram’s mother describing life when cholera hit their town, as well as several of Bram’s classic short stories which reveal hints of the writing which would later infuse Dracula itself.
