A Man, Tall and Thin, and Ghastly Pale: Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Lovies, if you’ve seen today’s Google Doodle, you know that Bram Stoker was born on this day, November 8, in 1847.  In honor of his birthday, and the landmark 1897 Gothic horror novel that introduced the name “Dracula” to popular culture, here is a lovely little collection of Dracula cover art. You can also read the complete text of Dracula for free online, courtesy of Project Gutenberg.

  1. Awesome! To me this is the “only” Vampire book!

  2. Of course he’d be a Scorpio! I love these. Thanks!

  3. Also worth checking out is The Jewel of the Seven Stars which was filmed as Blood From the Mummy’s Tomb by Hammer and then as The Awakening with Charlton Heston

  4. Bram Stoker’s Dracula was on TV last evening (or was it early this morning?) and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it…AGAIN! Gary Oldman was amazing! But I still think the book was better!

  5. NIce! I’ve got one with the top left sleeve 😀
