"Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker's still-living creation are surely the undead ."— New York Times Review of Books
"An exercise in masculine anxiety and nationalist paranoia, Stoker's novel is filled with scenes that are staggeringly lurid and perverse.... The one in Highgate cemetery, where Arthur and Van Helsing drive a stake through the writhing body of the vampirised Lucy Westenra, is my favourite."—
Sarah Waters, author of The Little Stranger
"It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein
or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror."—
Bram Stoker's Mother --Bram Stoker's Mother
From Library Journal
The Dover volume collects 14 of Stoker's lesser-known horror stories such as "The Crystal Cup," "The Burial of the Rats," and "A Gipsey Prophecy." Though most of his other fiction has been overshadowed by Dracula, these offer some real chills and warrant reading. While editions of Dracula, which celebrated its centennial in 1997, are legion, Broadview's offers several extras, including a chronology of Stoker's life and appendixes on Transylvania, London, Mental Physiology, Reviews and Interviews, and more. That along with the full text make this one of the best editions available, especially at this remarkable price.
