Bram Stoker - LIFE STORIES
 
 
4/20/1912     Stoker, Irving & Count Vlad
On this day in 1912 Bram Stoker died. The author of some twenty books, Stoker is known almost exclusively for Dracula, published in 1897. The novel brought little fame or fortune in Stoker's lifetime -- so little that he had to ask for charity at the end of his career. More surprisingly, Dracula raised few eyebrows, though modern critics find it a "veritable sexual lexicon of Victorian taboos."

70 Years of Dracula
Offers a biography and several articles which trace the roots of the Dracula stories, and their evolution in Dracula, "Nosferatu", pulp fiction stories, the Bela Lugosi and Hammer Studios films, and recent productions. Also includes reviews of movies and plays.

"Stoker was not without a dark side; he had earlier published a collection of morbid children's stories entitled, 'Under the Sunset'. I have not seen this work, but I have been given to understand that even in these times the subject matter is inappropriate for young children."

    Stoker, Dracula and Vampires
    This website by the author of Dracula: Sense & Nonsense aims to separate fact from fiction where Dracula-related myths are concerned. It includes "20 Common Misconceptions" about Stoker's Dracula, a chronology of events in the author's life, and articles on the origins and history of the Dracula myth, and Vampirism in the natural world.

    "Bram Stoker did not invent the vampire. Vampires appear in the folklore and legends of many cultures dating back to ancient times. Interest in the English-speaking world can be traced back to 1732, when the word "vampyre" first appeared in our language."
