Midnight Tales

Overview

A grisly selection of tales from the author of Dracula
 
Werewolves, torture chambers, brutal retributions—all of the tales in this volume are marked by Stoker’s fascination with the strange, the mysterious, and the deadly that made him a master of the genre; their readability betrays their origins as conversation pieces in candle-lit dining rooms 100 years ago.

Overview

A grisly selection of tales from the author of Dracula
 
Werewolves, torture chambers, brutal retributions—all of the tales in this volume are marked by Stoker’s fascination with the strange, the mysterious, and the deadly that made him a master of the genre; their readability betrays their origins as conversation pieces in candle-lit dining rooms 100 years ago. The success of Dracula has tended to obscure Bram Stoker’s other works, in particular his short stories. Many of his best stories have remained forgotten in the magazines to which he sold them in his lifetime. A number of these appear in Midnight Tales, under the titles Stoker intended for them rather than those substituted by magazine editors. Also included is the dramatic finale from his 1903 novel, The Jewel of the Seven Stars, which so shocked Edwardian readers that it was later expurgated. Midnight Tales is an important collection that preserves Bram Stoker’s lesser-known legacy.
