'I am Dracula. And I bid you welcome to my house.'

Editorial Reviews

"Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker's still-living creation are surely the undead ."— New York Times Review of Books"An exercise in masculine anxiety and nationalist paranoia, Stoker's novel is filled with scenes that are staggeringly lurid and perverse.... The one in Highgate cemetery, where Arthur and Van Helsing drive a stake through the writhing body of the vampirised Lucy Westenra, is my favourite."— Sarah Waters, author of The Little Stranger"It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror."— Bram Stoker's Mother
