Although Bram Stoker is best known for his world-famous novel Dracula, he also wrote many shorter works on the strange and the macabre. This collection, comprising Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories, a volume of spine-chilling short stories collected and published by Stoker's widow after his death, and The Lair of the White Worm, an intensely intriguing novel of myths, legends and unspeakable evil, demonstrate the full range of his horror writing. From the petrifying open tomb in 'Dracula's Guest' to the mental breakdown depicted in 'The Judge's House' and 'Crooken Sands', these terrifying tales of the uncanny explore the boundaries between life and death, known and unknown, animal and human, dream and reality.

The story is currently being developed into a television series that is slated to air on the CW network in 2010. A must-read for lovers of vampire lit.

It is widely believed that "Dracula's Guest" is actually the deleted first chapter from the original Dracula manuscript, which the publisher felt was superfluous to the story. In the preface to the original edition of Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories, Stoker's widow Florence wrote, "To his original list of stories in this book, I have added an hitherto unpublished episode from Dracula. It was originally excised owing to the length of the book, and may prove of interest to the many readers of what is considered my husband's most remarkable work.

Bram Stoker (1847-1912) is known the world over as the author of DRACULA, one of the Victorian era's most celebrated novels, certainly one of the horror genre's foundational works. It was not, however, his only work; Stoker also wrote at least eleven other novels and novellas and any number of short stories, none of them as widely known or celebrated as his masterwork. DRACULA'S GUEST, often titled DRACULA'S GUEST AND OTHER WEIRD STORIES, collects the title piece and eight unrelated stories. The story concerns an unnamed traveler, possibly Johnathan Harker, who is traveling in Germany on Walpurgis Night, and very foolishly leaves his coach to stroll down a lane of unsavory reputation.

Includes the short story “Dracula’s Guest,” thought to be the omitted first chapter of Dracula. Dracula is Bram Stoker’s classic gothic tale of Count Dracula, one of the most famous characters ever created in fiction, his relationship with Jonathan and Mina Harker, pursuit by Professor van Helsing and ultimate destruction in the name of love. Intent on immigrating to England, Count Dracula enlists the services of Jonathan Harker to arrange the purchase of a suitable residence. Intrigued by the young Harker and his beautiful wife, Mina, Dracula sets in motion a series of events that threatens the sanity of all. Recognized today as a horror classic, at the time of its publication in 1897 Dracula touched on and challenged such contemporary themes as the role of women in Victorian England, sexual conventions, and colonialism. Using historical and regional folklore as a basis, Stoker defined the modern vampire, and his definition continues to influence current depictions of vampires across all forms of media. Widely believed to be the deleted first chapter of Dracula, “Dracula’s Guest,” taken from Bram Stoker’s collection of short stories, follows an Englishman, presumed to be Jonathan Harker, on a visit to Munich en route to Transylvania. Despite warnings from his hotelier, the Englishman leaves the safety of his carriage and wanders towards an abandoned “unholy” village. “Dracula’s Guest” was originally published and introduced as the “excised chapter” in Dracula’s Guest and Other Weird Stories by Stoker’s widow, Florence.

Even in the twenty-first century, the undead walk among us... Before Twilight and True Blood, vampires haunted the nineteenth century, when brilliant writers indulged their bloodthirsty imaginations, culminating in Bram Stoker's legendary 1897 novel, Dracula. Acclaimed author and anthologist Michael Sims brings together the finest vampire stories of the Victorian era in a unique collection that highlights their cultural variety. Beginning with the supposedly true accounts that captivated Byron and Shelley, the stories range from Aleksei Tolstoy's tale of a vampire family to Fitz James O'Brien's invisible monster to Mary Elizabeth Braddon's rich and sinister widow, Good Lady Ducayne. Sims also includes a nineteenth-century travel tour of Transylvanian superstitions, and finishes the collection with Stoker's own Dracula's Guest - a chapter omitted from his landmark novel. Vampires captivated Victorian society, and these wonderful stories demonstrate how Romantic and Victorian writers refined the raw ore of peasant superstition into a whole vampire mythology of aristocratic decadence and innocence betrayed.

»Dracula« ist eine mit besonderen Stilmitteln (Tagebuchauszügen, Zeitungsausschnitten, Brieftexten) aufgebaute, mitreißend erzählte Geschichte über bedingungslose Freundschaft, Liebe und den Kampf gegen das Böse, den Jonathan Harker und seine Mitstreiter aufnehmen müssen. Die Betonung des Gruseligen hat den Stoff zwar berühmt gemacht, ist aber eigentlich das Unwichtigste an diesem Roman, der zu Recht zur Weltliteratur gehört.
