I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around this one, friends. BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA was released to theaters 25 years ago. TWENTY. FIVE. YEARS. How is that even possible? How could time have flown by so fast? Twenty years I might–might–be able to buy. But a whole quarter-century? Please time, please, slow down. Like…

Back the Bram Stoker Bronze Bust Project!

Just a couple’a three weeks back I brought you all word of sculptor Bryan Moore’s plan to fashion a bust of the man who gifted the world with the most famous vampire of them all, Count Dracula. The man behind the Count is, of course, Irish author Bram Stoker. Moore intends to place the bust,…

DID Bram Stoker base the physical description of Count Dracula on Vlad the Impaler?

Okay, first off, it’s a pet peeve of mine that people refer to him as “Vlad the Impaler.” His name was DRACULA. That’s what he would have referred to himself as, and been referred to as. Tepes, or “Impaler,” was just a nickname, and may have been intended as pejorative. Secondarily, yes, I am aware…

Bram’s Library Books

The story has been making the rounds. Doubtless you’ve seen the headlines. The London Library in Mayfair has discovered the books that were used by Bram Stoker when he was doing research, working on DRACULA. What blows my mind about this is that those books are still on the shelves, over a hundred years later….

Revisiting the Literary Classics: Bram Stoker’s A DREAM OF RED HANDS

After the LAST story I read from Stoker, THE CHAIN OF DESTINY, which I reviewed (unfavorably) in a separate article this week, I needed to read something from the master to reaffirm my faith in him. Something good. Something other than DRACULA, as my goal in reading and/or rereading Stoker’s other, lesser known works was…

How Did Dracula Become a Vampire?
