    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.

    Transylvanian mystique and legendary hauntedness surround the most infamous of Bram Stoker's protagonists, forming a legacy that allows the myth to continue into modern times, maintaining a cultish following, yet broadening to a general fascination. Dracula became such an obsession as it embodied a taboo subject matter: the desire for blood and sex. Filled with extraordinary pictures of the Count, his literary companions, and the movie idols, this is a treasure only to be read by daylight!
