Even in our vampire-obsessed age, Dracula remains the first, the best, and the most hypnotic bloodsucker of all. Jonathan Harker, a young solicitor, journeys to Transylvania to complete a property deal with the mysterious Count Dracula. But the naive Harker does not know who and what he is dealing with—and this simple business transaction ends up unleashing a terrible evil on his countrymen. All that stands between the innocent citizens of London and the Count's reign of terror are the vampire hunter Dr Van Helsing and his team of slayers. Stoker's classic and oft-dramatized novel captured the fears of his age. Irresistibly attractive and unfailingly murderous, Dracula represented everything the Victorians feared: the irrational, the pagan, the erotic, and the foreign. It is as exciting today as when first published in 1897. The world''s greatest works of literature are now available in these beautiful keepsake volumes. Bound in real cloth, and featuring gilt edges and ribbon markers, these beautifully produced books are a wonderful way to build a handsome library of classic literature. These are the essential novels that belong in every home. They''ll transport readers to imaginary worlds and provide excitement, entertainment, and enlightenment for years to come. All of these novels feature attractive illustrations and have an unequalled period feel that will grace the library, the bedside table or bureau.

About the Author

Bram Stoker was born in Dublin, the son of a civil servant. Although a semi-invalid as a child, he went on the gain a reputation as a fine athlete at Trinity College, where he also excelled in mathematics and philosophy. Stoker worked as a civil servant and a journalist before becoming the personal secretary of the famous actor Henry Irving. He also wrote 15 works of fiction, only one of which is very memorable - Dracula (1897). This work, involving hypnotism, magic, the supernatural, and other elements of gothic fiction, went on to sell over one million copies and is still selling strongly today. So well known has his fictional character become that today it is possible to visit the castle of Count Dracula in the Transylvanian region of Romania, a country that Stoker never visited. Several film versions of the story, both serious and comic, have made Stoker's work a part of modern mythology. His novel The Lair of the White Worm (1911) has also been made into film. It and the novel The Lady of the Shroud are, like Dracula, fantastic tales of horror.
