Some literary historians believe that Dracula's Guest is an excerpt excised from the original manuscript of Bram Stoker's masterpiece Dracula by an overzealous editor. This short novel recounts the travels of an unnamed Englishman who crosses paths with a foreboding wolf-like creature on his way to Count Dracula's castle. The story is currently being developed into a television series that is slated to air on the CW network in 2010. A must-read for lovers of vampire lit. This edition also includes these short stories: The Judge's House, The Squaw, The Secret of the Growing Gold, The Gipsy Prophecy, The Coming of Abel Behenna, The Burial of the Rats, A Dream of Red Hands and Crooken Sands.

Winner of the 1997 International Association of the Fantastic in the Arts Best Non-fiction Book In 1897, Archibald Constable & Company published a novel by the unheralded Bram Stoker. That novel, Dracula, has gone on to become perhaps the most influential novel of all time. To commemorate the centennial of that great novel, Carol Margaret Davison has brought together this collection of essays by some of the world’s leading scholars. The essays analyze Stoker’s original novel and celebrate its legacy in popular culture. The continuing presence of Dracula and vampire fiction and films provides proof that, as Davison writes, Dracula is "alive and sucking." "Dracula is a Gothic mandala, a vast design in which multiple reflections of the elements of the genre are configured in elegant sets of symmetries. It is also a sort of lens, bringing focus and compression to diverse Gothic motifs, including not only vampirism but madness, the night, spoiled innocence, disorder in nature, sacrilege, cannibalism, necrophilia, psychic projection, the succubus, the incubus, the ruin, and the tomb. Gathering up and unifying all that came before it, and casting its great shadow over all that came and continues to come after, its influence on twentieth-century Gothic fiction and film is unique and irresistible." from the Preface by Patrick McGrath

»Dracula« ist eine mit besonderen Stilmitteln (Tagebuchauszügen, Zeitungsausschnitten, Brieftexten) aufgebaute, mitreißend erzählte Geschichte über bedingungslose Freundschaft, Liebe und den Kampf gegen das Böse, den Jonathan Harker und seine Mitstreiter aufnehmen müssen. Die Betonung des Gruseligen hat den Stoff zwar berühmt gemacht, ist aber eigentlich das Unwichtigste an diesem Roman, der zu Recht zur Weltliteratur gehört.

Even in the twenty-first century, the undead walk among us... Before Twilight and True Blood, vampires haunted the nineteenth century, when brilliant writers indulged their bloodthirsty imaginations, culminating in Bram Stoker's legendary 1897 novel, Dracula. Acclaimed author and anthologist Michael Sims brings together the finest vampire stories of the Victorian era in a unique collection that highlights their cultural variety. Beginning with the supposedly true accounts that captivated Byron and Shelley, the stories range from Aleksei Tolstoy's tale of a vampire family to Fitz James O'Brien's invisible monster to Mary Elizabeth Braddon's rich and sinister widow, Good Lady Ducayne. Sims also includes a nineteenth-century travel tour of Transylvanian superstitions, and finishes the collection with Stoker's own Dracula's Guest - a chapter omitted from his landmark novel. Vampires captivated Victorian society, and these wonderful stories demonstrate how Romantic and Victorian writers refined the raw ore of peasant superstition into a whole vampire mythology of aristocratic decadence and innocence betrayed.

Sieben Jahre sind vergangen, seit Van Helsing, Jonathan und Mina Harker und ihre Freunde dem nächtlichen Treiben des Grafen Dracula ein grausames Ende setzten. Doch der schöne Schein trügt. Zunächst wissen die Verbündeten von damals die Zeichen nicht zu deuten: Plötzlich spielt die ansonsten friedliche Katze der Harkers verrückt, die frommen Eheleute werden von wüsten, erregenden Träumen heimgesucht, und auch das bezaubernde Kindermädchen Elena benimmt sich mit einem Mal höchst seltsam. Bald können sich die Harkers und ihre Freunde der schrecklichen Erkenntnis nicht entziehen: Dracula ist zurück ...

"Since its publication in 1897, Dracula has never been out of print in English and has inspired literally hundreds of popular films. In fact, this remarkable work, like its predecessor Frankenstein, almost immediately established itself as an important modern myth. It explores various fin de siecle anxieties about race, class, and gender as well as tensions about the place of science and technology in the modern world, all questions that continue to haunt readers a century later."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
