Description

Professor Abraham Van Helsing was the fictional creation of Bram Stoker for his dark work of fantasy "Dracula"...or was he? Fragments of a recently discovered journal suggest otherwise. For the first time, in his own words, the legendary vampire hunter tells the story of his early years: his studies in blood research and mysticism, leading to his quick rise to academic prominence; his medical work and research in Rumania and the Mid east; his beloved wife's tragic descent into madness and the death of his only child; and most importantly, his discovery of perhaps the greatest threat to man's dominion on earth - vampires. Filled with informative data and educational tips, "The Journal of Professor Abraham Van Helsing" is more than a study of vampirism. It is also the story of a man's obsession with eradicating the world of its greatest scourge, the dark evil that claimed his wife.
