“These rediscovered stories are a genuine treasure trove for classic thrill-seekers and lovers of supernatural fiction.”
In 1897, Bram Stoker’s iconic DRACULA redefined the horror genre and had a significant impact on the image of the vampire in popular culture. But encounters with the undead were nothing new: they had electrified readers of Gothic fiction since even before Victorian times.
DRACULA’S BRETHREN is a tribute to those early writers, a collation of 19 archetypal tales written between 1820 and 1910, many long forgotten, celebrating the vampire stories that both inspired and were inspired by Bram Stoker’s iconic novel.
Why We’re Excited About This Book:
Widely considered one of the backbones of popular classic horror literature along with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula was hardly the first novel to tackle the subject of creatures of the night, with tales of vampires having been published long before then.
Dalby and Frost have selected a raft of 19 tales that are sure to please the bloodsucking fans among us and provide an entertaining history lesson about the dawn of vampire fiction.
Dracula’s Brethren is out on 4 May 2017 and is available from Amazon.
