Fiction, Classic horror & ghost stories

A facsimile editon from the original publisher to celebrate the Centenary of Bram Stoker's death.

No book since Mrs Shelley's Frankenstein, or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror - Poe is nowhere..."-Charlotte Stoker (Mother of Bram Stoker).

Originally published in 1897, Bram Stoker's Dracula has spawned countless new editions, inspired over fifty films, and hundreds of reimaginings. The iconic and terrifying character of Stoker's imagination has permeated our conciousness in such away that Dracula is the seminal vampire of popular culture.

Set across London and into the darkest corners of Eastern Europe, Dracula is told through the journal entries and letters of its protagonists as they strive to survive the presence of Count Dracula in their lives. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to assist in a land transaction, but finds himself trapped in the Count's castle, tormented by strange and unearthly occurrences. After a miraculous escape, he returns to England, only to find that the Count has followed him to London and has begun tracking his fiance, Mina...

Reprinted in its original form, this edition of Dracula is perfect for a first time reader, or as a classic to keep forever.

Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker (1847-1912)
Abraham 'Bram' Stoker was born in Dublin, Ireland. He spent most of his early years bed-ridden with an unknown illness, but later made a full recovery. After being educated in a private school Stoker attended Trinity College, Dublin from 1864 to 1870 and graduated with honours as a B.A. in Mathematics. His interest in theatre led him to become a theatre critic for the Dublin Evening Mail. Although Stoker is best known today as the author of the 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula, during his lifetime he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. After suffering from a number of strokes, Stoker died in April 1912. The Bram Stoker Award is named in his honour and is given in recognition of "superior achievement" in horror writing.
