The blood-chilling story written by Irish author Bram Stoker is a true horror classic. The Gothic horror novel was written in 1897. It follows the story of the mysterious, charismatic Count Dracula. The Count turns out to be a vampire, of course (spoilers!). The archaic style of writing is mesmerizing. The Gothic atmosphere made by Stoker’s eloquent wording is one that would be appreciated by any horror fiction fan.
