"A terrific short story collection"
Just about everyone knows about the events that have
taken place in Bram Stoker's Dracula. However, while he
lived in Victorian England Dracula became involved with
other people and events that the author chose to ignore.
Mr. Stoker left it to some of the most famous writers of
horror tales to complete the full picture by contributing
fantastic stories to this anthology.
Writers like Fred Saberhagen, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and
Nancy Kirkpatrick provide tales that show what the
Transylvanian Count was doing in London. Tanya Huff
focuses on Dracula's fascination on meeting the Prince of
Wales. Nigel Bennett and P. N. Elrod have a Russian
purposely travel to England to confront the prince of
vampires. Elaine Bergstrom writes about a suffragette who
needs Dracula's help.
The entire collection is excellent as no one fails to
hold up his or her weight. Mr. Stoker would have
appreciated this anthology.
