Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories

 
11

Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Storieis a collection of short stories by Bram Stoker, first published in 1914, two years after Stoker's death.


Dracula's Guest follows an Englishman (whose name is never mentioned) as he wanders around Munich before leaving for Transylvania. It is Walpurgis Night, and in spite of the coachman's warnings, the young man foolishly leaves his hotel and wanders through a dense forest alone.

 

Although Bram Stoker is best known for his world-famous novel Dracula, he also wrote many shorter works on the strange and the macabre. Comprised of spine-chilling tales published by Stoker’s widow after his death, as well as The Lair Of The White Worm, an intensely intriguing novel of myths, legends, and unspeakable evils, this collection demonstrates the full range of Stoker’s horror writing.

 

Bram Stoker was more than just the author of Dracula. He was an Irish writer of novels and short stories. Stoker was a personal assistant to an actor and manager of a large theatre in London. Stories in this collection include Dracula's guest -- The judge's house -- The squaw -- The secret of the growing gold -- The gipsy prophecy -- The coming of Abel Behenna -- The burial of the rats -- A dream of red hands -- Crooken sands.
