Awareness of Dracula as a masterly gothic thriller has increased ever since its publication in 1897, and the novel is regarded as one of the most seminal horror stories of ever written, having inspired countless copycat tales and literary spin-offs. The tale of young Englishman Jonathan Harker's journey to Transylvania, into the very heart of Count Dracula's evil realm, is compelling, but it is perhaps the journey of the vampire to England, and the dangers he poses to Jonathan's beloved Mina, that is the more horrifying. A thriller of hypnotic power, a dark exploration of sexuality, mythology and the supernatural, and a plain old-fashioned masterpiece of storytelling, the nightmarish tale of Dracula is one of the all-time great classics of horror fiction.
