See 2 Critic Reviews



Presented here, for the first time since their publication over a century ago, are twelve previously unknown published works of fiction, poetry, and journalistic writing by Bram Stoker (1847-1912), three works by Stoker never before reprinted, twelve obscure period writings about Stoker, and the exceptionally rare 1913 estate sale catalogue of Stoker's personal library.

Through both the original works and extensive archival research presented, this vital collection sheds new light on an enigmatic writer and rejects the view that Dracula is Stoker's only legacy worth consideration. The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker underscores not only the intertexuality between Dracula and the other works, but supports the exciting prospect that Stoker's periodical writings account for a much greater force in his literary repertoire than previously accepted.

A must-read for Stoker fans and scholars, this collection offers an important window into fin-de-siècle Gothic literature.
