Overview

'Significant to Dracula's initial and enduring appeal are centuries-old myths of the vampire, which Bram presented as fact. While religion is the official gatekeeper for the afterlife, myth and folklore have always provided options to explain the otherwise unexplainable, and tales of the undead have abided as long as the dead themselves.' From the introduction by Dacre Stoker

On a trip abroad to visit the wealthy and secretive man who has been buying properties in the UK, Jonathan Harker finds himself trapped within the confines of Castle Dracula, unable to escape and prey to whatever dread nightmare stalks its corridors. Meanwhile in England, Jonathan's fiancee, Mina, waits for news, not realising that soon, her life, and that of her best friend Lucy, will be under threat, as Count Dracula arrives. Only the eccentric Dr Van Helsing stands between Dracula and his prey.

The classic vampire novel, reprinted along with 'Dracula's Guest', once included in the manuscript of Dracula, plus an extended ending to the novel presented by researcher Dacre Stoker, Bram's great grand-nephew, and bestselling author of Dracul, the official prequel to Dracula.

'The recollections of this weird and ghostly tale will doubtless haunt us for some time to come.' Daily Mail

'Dracula is THE vampire and the novel is THE vampire novel.' The Guardian

'Horrid and creepy to the last degree. It is also excellent, and one of the best things in the supernatural line that we have been lucky enough to hit upon.' Pall Mall Gazette
