In 1897 Bram Stoker wrote a classic horror story that has spawned hundreds of imitators but has never been surpassed. From Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire to such writers such as Stephenie Meyer, the story of the vampire--and the godfather of them all, Dracula--lives on. Compelling, chilling, engrossing, filled with suspense and fear--this is a tale you can't put down. Includes a fascinating and rarely found interview with author Bram Stoker. Newly designed and typeset in a 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
