Bram Stoker, Busted!

In this week’s second bit of news concerning sculpture, renowned artist Bryan Moore, who has crafted bronze busts of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, has announced his plans to create one of Bram Stoker, the biographer (I refuse to say “creator”) of Count Dracula. What’s more, Moore will create the sculpture in Dublin, Ireland, the city of Bram’s birth, and once completed the work of art will be put on permanent display at the Dublin Writers Museum. Moore plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project.

Moore seems like a man after my own heart, as he calls for greater recognition among the literary world for such overlooked masters of the macabre as Poe, Lovecraft and Stoker. Says Moore: “So many fellow fans from across the world rally to the cause and help me turn this vision into a reality, which is to celebrate these legendary authors of works that mean so much to the public consciousness and to pop culture. It’s about time that the authors of these classics of horror literature were seen as legitimate scribes of something really special that never becomes dated. Horror will outlast us all.” Indeed it will, sir. Indeed it will.
