Bram Stoker’s Dracula, upon its publication in 1897, shocked, captivated, offended, titillated, outraged, and thrilled. Two years later it astounded an American reviewer that Stoker might be a successful businessman let alone the creator of the mysterious, seductive count from a castle (and coffin) in Transylvania. In more than a century since, Bram Stoker’s Dracula has never gone out of print. Yet the count has long overshadowed his author. This generously illustrated documentary collection explores in full the scope of the Dracula phenomenon, from the folkloric origins of the vampire legend to its unending legacy as a vitals influence on the literary and performing arts, not to mention the Romanian tourist industry. Nor does it overlook Bram Stoker himself. Notes, Checklist for Reference and Further Reading. B&W illus. 391p.

Presented here, for the first time since their publication over a century ago, are twelve previously unknown published works of fiction, poetry, and journalistic writing by Bram Stoker (1847-1912), three works by Stoker never before reprinted, twelve obscure period writings about Stoker, and the exceptionally rare 1913 estate sale catalogue of Stoker's personal library. Through both the original works and extensive archival research presented, this vital collection sheds new light on an enigmatic writer and rejects the view that Dracula is Stoker's only legacy worth consideration. The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker underscores not only the intertexuality between Dracula and the other works, but supports the exciting prospect that Stoker's periodical writings account for a much greater force in his literary repertoire than previously accepted. A must-read for Stoker fans and scholars, this collection offers an important window into fin-de-siècle Gothic literature.
