Most famous for his monumental vampire novel, Dracula, Bram Stoker was hardly a one hit wonder: he was responsible for two other supernatural novels and around two dozen short stories and poems. Largely inspired by the gothic aesthetics of Edgar Allan Poe, E. T. A. Hoffmann, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, his stories are at times melancholy, mystical, gory, and gruesome, but always strange and haunting.
In this annotated and illustrated edition we have collected the very best of his short stories (eliminating some of his more maudlin, sentimental tales and sticking to the weird and disturbing episodes worthy of the author of Dracula). You'll find torture chambers, murderous ghosts, female vampires, grisly murders, revenge fantasies, gypsy curses, and Gothic tales of doom, terror, and gore. If you enjoyed feasting on Dracula, sit down for the appetizers.
