Editorial Reviews

Review

“With the discovery of its vast differences from Dracula, [Powers of Darkness] will have a lasting effect on the world of vampire studies.”
- John Williams, The New York Times Book Review

“Our familiar, beloved count has a wintry doppelgänger, thanks to this strange, pleasing curiosity of a book.”
- The Guardian

“This early translation of Bram Stoker's landmark novel, translated into English for the first time, provides an illuminating look at an act of literary interpretation . . . De Roos's abundant annotations are insightful, and the translation, although pulpier than Stoker's original, is a fascinating gloss on a literary classic.”
- Publishers Weekly

Powers of Darkness is an incredible discovery that serves as a return to form for the vampire story, giving the Count and his famous Transylvanian castle centre stage once more, and scaring us all senseless in the process.”
- The National Post

Powers of Darkness is an entertaining story and during the read, it is easy to forget what it’s supposed to be―a translation―and think of it as an entirely new novel . . . to quote from the original: ‘There are mysteries men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.’ Powers of Darkness does exactly that, while offering new mysteries in their place.”
- Toni V. Sweeney, The New York Journal of Books

“A completely new look at this classic text that fans of the book and genre won’t want to miss.”
- San Francisco Book Review

“This thoroughly documented work is recommended for Dracula scholars, and general readers of horror will also enjoy the story.”
- Library Journal

About the Author

Hans Corneel de Roos is an independent researcher specializing in French and British Art of the second half of the 19th Century. He is author of The Ultimate Dracula and numerous other articles on Dracula. He is a recipient of the Research Award of the Transylvanian Society of Dracula.

Bram Stoker (1847-1912), an Irish novelist and short story writer, was known during his lifetime as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned, but is best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula.

Vladimar Ásmundsson (1852-1902) was the founder and editor of the Icelandic literary journal, Lady of the Mountains.

Dacre Stoker is a Canadian-American writer, athlete, and filmmaker. He is the author of Dracula: The Un-Dead, and is the great-grand-nephew of Bram Stoker. He lives in South Carolina with his family.

John Edgar Browning is a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is author or editor eleven academic and popular trade books and more than 50 articles, book chapters, and reviews on subjects that cluster around horror, the undead, Bram Stoker, and the Gothic. He has also been a guest on National Geographic's Taboo USA and The Discovery Channel's William Shatner's Weird or What? to discuss vampires.
