Dracula s Crypt Book Description:

"An ingenious reappraisal of a classic text, Dracula's Crypt presents Stoker's novel as a subtly ironic commentary on England's preoccupation with racial purity. Probing psychobiographical, political, and cultural elements of Stoker's background and milieu, Joseph Valente distinguishes Stoker's viewpoint from that of his virulently racist, hypermasculine vampire hunters, showing how the author's dual Anglo-Celtic heritage and uncertain status as an Irish parvenu among London's theatrical elite led him to espouse a progressive racial ideology at odds with the dominant Anglo-Saxon supremacism. In the light of Stoker's experience, the shabby-genteel Count Dracula can be seen as a doppelganger, an ambiguous figure who is at once the blood-conscious landed aristocrat and the bloodthirsty foreign invader."--BOOK JACKET.

Dracula s Wars Book Description:

The real Dracula was far from Bram Stoker’s well-mannered aristocrat. Better known as Vlad the Impaler, he was named for his favoured execution method: running a spear through his victim’s lower body, then standing them upright so it skewered their vital organs. In a world ruled by petty tyrants and constantly at war, the young Dracula was held hostage by the Turks while his father was assassinated and his brother was buried alive. Finally released, Dracula conducted an almighty purge, surrounding his palace with noblemen impaled on stakes. Then he turned his attention to military campaigns against the Turks and Bulgars to consolidate his power. Yet to Romanians and the Pope he was a hero and liberator, fighting to protect his kingdom and countrymen from invasion in a complex and treacherous time. And, as an initiate in the Order of the Dragon, Dracula also played a vital (if not entirely noble) part in the fight against the Ottoman war machine. In this full account of Vlad Dracula, James Waterson details the good and the bad of this warlord prince, offering a fascinating insight into the violent end of the Middle Ages.

Dracula s Bedlam Book Description:

Dracula’s Bedlam is the second novel in the StokerVerse series, conceptualised and brought to life by writers Chris McAuley and Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker. Guest writer John Peel also contributes to this excellent addition to the series. It is a mixed media presentation with both story content and graphic novel elements from Frederick B. Roseman, along with an introduction from author of the Horror series Deadknobs and Doomsticks and much-loved UK personality Joe Pasquale. Is there a place more enthralling than that of the Asylum? The insane lurk in the shadows with gibbering mouths and twisted minds… Dr. Seward's asylum is particularly interesting; a serial killer has his mind peeled back, a mysterious nurse walks the halls with a sweet smile and devious mind… and, of course, there's the enigmatic Mr. Renfield… Set between the cracks of the original Dracula novel, the StokerVerse series hopes to shed a little light into the dark areas which were not wholly explored by author Bram Stoker. Familiar figures from Dracula and original characters created specifically for the StokerVerse appear in these dark and twisted tales. Dracula’s Bedlam is the perfect read for a dark Halloween night… if you dare!

Dracula s Daughters Book Description:

A unique anthology of time-tested shudder-stories about a unique breed of women who "refused to take death lying down"--and is available exclusively to eBook readers. Though they may all be siblings beneath the skin (and graveyard as well!), these vampiric sisters are as different as any eight women could be. one "The Good Lady Ducayne") prefers to acquire her nourishment through more scientific means. Another doesn't even drink blood at all; her approach to draining the life from her victims is somewhat more direct (but we think you'll agree that "Luella Miller" deserves the appellation "vampire" every bit as much as any of the rest). Some inhabit ancient European castles with bloodlines that stretch back into history ("Clarimonde") others (like "Mrs. Amworth") are freshly-minted, dwelling in the house right across the street. Some are reached by automobile ("The Dark Castle"); others lie far back in time in the late 1700s ("Wake not the Dead"). Some joined the legions of the undead via the standard methods, like suicide ("The Blood is the Life"), while still others owe their existence to very unusual means indeed ("Placide's Wife"). Some even embraced their fate for love ("Each Man Kills"). There is one thing these frightful female fiends have in common, however, besides their fangs: Once you've met them, you will never forget them!

Dracula s Vault A Collection of Vampiric Tales from the Pen of Bram Stoker Book Description:

A chilling collection of classic gothic short stories written by Bram Stoker, all connected through the theme of vampires. “Gothic fiction” is a subgenre of Gothic horror that is defined by a combination of fiction writing with horror, death, and sometimes romance. It arguably originated from the 1764 novel “The Castle of Otranto” by English author Horace Walpole, which was subtitled “A Gothic Story” after the second edition. Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 – 1912) was an Irish author. He is best remembered for his 1897 Gothic novel “Dracula”, which introduced the world-famous character of Count Dracula and is responsible for various conventions of vampire fantasy that persist to this day. The tales include: 'Dracula', 'The Judge's House', 'The Burial of the Rats' and 'The Squaw'. Other notable works by this author include: “The Primrose Path” (1875), “The Snake's Pass” (1890), and “Seven Golden Buttons” (1891). This volume will appeal to lovers of Gothic literature and classic vampire literature. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
