DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Excerpt from Dracula: A Mystery Story In the population of Transylvania there are four distinct nationalities: Saxons m the South, and mixed with them the Wallachs, who are the descendants of the Dacians Magyars in the West, and Szekely s in the East and North. I am going among the latter, who claim to be descended from Attila and the Huns. This may be so, for when the Magyars conquered the country in the eleventh century they found the Hans settled in it. I read that every known superstition in the world 18 gathered into the horseshoe of the Carpathians, as if it were the centre of some sort of imaginative whirlpool; if so my stay may be vc interesting.

Dracula s Crypt

Dracula s Crypt
Author: Joseph Valente
Release: 2002
Editor: University of Illinois Press
Pages: 200

Language: en

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"An ingenious reappraisal of a classic text, Dracula's Crypt presents Stoker's novel as a subtly ironic commentary on England's preoccupation with racial purity. Probing psychobiographical, political, and cultural elements of Stoker's background and milieu, Joseph Valente distinguishes Stoker's viewpoint from that of his virulently racist, hypermasculine vampire hunters, showing how the author's dual Anglo-Celtic heritage and uncertain status as an Irish parvenu among London's theatrical elite led him to espouse a progressive racial ideology at odds with the dominant Anglo-Saxon supremacism. In the light of Stoker's experience, the shabby-genteel Count Dracula can be seen as a doppelganger, an ambiguous figure who is at once the blood-conscious landed aristocrat and the bloodthirsty foreign invader."--BOOK JACKET.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The real Dracula was far from Bram Stoker’s well-mannered aristocrat. Better known as Vlad the Impaler, he was named for his favoured execution method: running a spear through his victim’s lower body, then standing them upright so it skewered their vital organs. In a world ruled by petty tyrants and constantly at war, the young Dracula was held hostage by the Turks while his father was assassinated and his brother was buried alive. Finally released, Dracula conducted an almighty purge, surrounding his palace with noblemen impaled on stakes. Then he turned his attention to military campaigns against the Turks and Bulgars to consolidate his power. Yet to Romanians and the Pope he was a hero and liberator, fighting to protect his kingdom and countrymen from invasion in a complex and treacherous time. And, as an initiate in the Order of the Dragon, Dracula also played a vital (if not entirely noble) part in the fight against the Ottoman war machine. In this full account of Vlad Dracula, James Waterson details the good and the bad of this warlord prince, offering a fascinating insight into the violent end of the Middle Ages.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Dracula’s Bedlam is the second novel in the StokerVerse series, conceptualised and brought to life by writers Chris McAuley and Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker. Guest writer John Peel also contributes to this excellent addition to the series. It is a mixed media presentation with both story content and graphic novel elements from Frederick B. Roseman, along with an introduction from author of the Horror series Deadknobs and Doomsticks and much-loved UK personality Joe Pasquale. Is there a place more enthralling than that of the Asylum? The insane lurk in the shadows with gibbering mouths and twisted minds… Dr. Seward's asylum is particularly interesting; a serial killer has his mind peeled back, a mysterious nurse walks the halls with a sweet smile and devious mind… and, of course, there's the enigmatic Mr. Renfield… Set between the cracks of the original Dracula novel, the StokerVerse series hopes to shed a little light into the dark areas which were not wholly explored by author Bram Stoker. Familiar figures from Dracula and original characters created specifically for the StokerVerse appear in these dark and twisted tales. Dracula’s Bedlam is the perfect read for a dark Halloween night… if you dare!

But with her longing for blood quenched by the one man she couldn't resist, Valerie now finds herself in an impossible circumstance. . . Out Of The Shadows. . . It's a fact that vampires do not get pregnant. But Valerie is definitely pregnant. Worse, six months ago her lover, Lance Soleil, abandoned her. Determined to find answers, Valerie goes on a quest--one that leads her to Lance's childhood friend, John Janté, a man with whom she shares a strong bond--and an intense lust. But when John is kidnapped, Valerie's attempt to rescue him uncovers more than she bargained for. . . Into The Fire. . . Scouring parallel realms and pocket dimensions, Valerie soon finds that Lance has regained Paradise as Angel of the Lost. . .John is hostage in a bizarre world that resembles Victorian London. . .and most shocking of all, Valerie's greatest love may be within her reach once more. For the soul of Dracula's dead wife, Ilona, is trapped within John's captor, a mad woman robbed of her humanity and manipulated by a conspiracy of Fallen Angels. Now, torn between past and present loves, Valerie must contend with emotions that threaten to break her. And in a desperate show-down, the reunited triad of a vampire, an angel, and a human, must face their deepest fears--with the future of an unborn angel-to-be in the balance. . .

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A chilling collection of classic gothic short stories written by Bram Stoker, all connected through the theme of vampires. “Gothic fiction” is a subgenre of Gothic horror that is defined by a combination of fiction writing with horror, death, and sometimes romance. It arguably originated from the 1764 novel “The Castle of Otranto” by English author Horace Walpole, which was subtitled “A Gothic Story” after the second edition. Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 – 1912) was an Irish author. He is best remembered for his 1897 Gothic novel “Dracula”, which introduced the world-famous character of Count Dracula and is responsible for various conventions of vampire fantasy that persist to this day. The tales include: 'Dracula', 'The Judge's House', 'The Burial of the Rats' and 'The Squaw'. Other notable works by this author include: “The Primrose Path” (1875), “The Snake's Pass” (1890), and “Seven Golden Buttons” (1891). This volume will appeal to lovers of Gothic literature and classic vampire literature. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The prequel to Dracula, inspired by notes and texts left behind by the author of the classic novel, Dracul is a supernatural thriller that reveals not only Dracula’s true origins but Bram Stoker’s—and the tale of the enigmatic woman who connects them. It is 1868, and a twenty-one-year-old Bram Stoker waits in a desolate tower to face an indescribable evil. Armed only with crucifixes, holy water, and a rifle, he prays to survive a single night, the longest of his life. Desperate to record what he has witnessed, Bram scribbles down the events that led him here... A sickly child, Bram spent his early days bedridden in his parents' Dublin home, tended to by his caretaker, a young woman named Ellen Crone. When a string of strange deaths occur in a nearby town, Bram and his sister Matilda detect a pattern of bizarre behavior by Ellen—a mystery that deepens chillingly until Ellen vanishes suddenly from their lives. Years later, Matilda returns from studying in Paris to tell Bram the news that she has seen Ellen—and that the nightmare they've thought long ended is only beginning.

Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Recently a long-lost journal belonging to Dracula author Bram Stoker was discovered in his great-grandson Noel's dusty attic. Published now to coincide with the centenary of Stoker's death, the text of this stunning find, written between 1871 and 1881, mostly in his native Dublin, will captivate scholars of Gothic literature and Dracula fans alike. Painstakingly transcribed and researched, the journal offers intriguing new insights into the complex nature of the man who wrote Dracula more than one hundred years ago. Assisted by a team of scholars and Stoker historians, Dacre Stoker and Professor Elizabeth Miller neatly connect the dots between the contents of the journal and Bram Stoker's later work, most significantly Dracula. Until now, discussion of the very private Bram Stoker has, by necessity, been largely speculative. Other than names and dates provided by biographers, and Bram Stoker's own sparse self-revelation in his non-fiction, little has been available to support character studies of this fascinating Victorian gentleman. This personal journal shows Stoker's private thoughts and his developing style, and is a veritable treasure trove of oddities, musings and anecdotes.
