Prince of the Night. Lord of the Damned. King of Vampires. He is Dracula, the most well-known vampire in the world-and this new illustrated edition of Bram Stoker's classic tale of terror offers Dracula as you have never seen him before.

About Bram Stoker
Bram Stoker (1847-1912) grew up listening to his mother's tales of blood-drinking fairies and vampires rising from their graves. He later managed the Lyceum Theatre in London and worked as a civil servant and a newspaper editor and reporter. Dracula, his best-known work, was published in 1897.
