A pale moon silhouettes the dark castle that sits on the distant mountain.  The howl of the wind seems far away but the cold chill hovers ominously in the fog that drifts along the path ahead.  It’s just a story, I tell myself as I turn the pages

In a series of journals, letters, & notes, Jonathan Harker & others take us through this deliciously scary tale of their encounter with the vampire known as Count Dracula.  Dracula has decided to move from Transylvania to London, where the strange lifestyle he leads will not frighten away those who might come across his path.  Jonathan Harker has traveled from London to Transylvania to facilitate the transfer of property in London for Count Dracula, so Jonathan stays at the Transylvania castle. Jonathan begins to question his own sanity:  Are the strange things he’s seeing real?   Could any of it be his imagination?

Although Dracula was first published at the end of the 19th century, the mystery is as compelling as any contemporary novel, & much, much scarier.
