Dracula : The Definitive Vampire Story Plus an Essential Guide to the Undead Paperback
by Bram Stoker
'The door is shut, and the chains rattle; there is a grinding of the key in the lock; I hear the creaking of lock and bolt...I shall not remain alone with them.
I may find a way from this dreadful place, away from this cursed spot, from this cursed land, where the devil and his children still walk with earthly feet'.
Young lawyer Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania on business for a mysterious Count.
Months later in England, beautiful Lucy Westenra falls ill and dies, inexplicably, as if from a severe loss of blood.
Lucy's friends, including Jonathan's fiancee Mina and the intrepid doctor Van Helsing, must begin a desperate battle against a powerful, ancient evil, in Bram Stoker's definitive gothic tale.
Extra material included: the myths surrounding the creation of Bram Stoker's masterpiece, plus the powers and weaknesses of Dracula; recommended vampire films and fiction, plus vampires of the small screen, vampires in comics and 'Dracula beyond the page'; academic courses, clubs and societies for vampire fans; and, real life 'vampires', international vampires, famous female vampires.
