May prize draw
World Dracula Day is Friday 26 May, with this year also seeing the 120th anniversary of Bram Stoker’s Dracula first being published. To celebrate this landmark, we are giving you the chance to win two beautiful, haunting editions: The Vampyre and Other Macabre Tales by John William Polidori, and of course Dracula by Bram Stoker.
Mingling 19th-century anxieties with the oldest terrors of European myth, Dracula is one of the greatest of all gothic novels, and still has the power to chill the blood. With his tale of a blood-sucking entity entering England by subterfuge and possessing English women, Stoker reaches into the darkest corners of the Victorian mind, revealing deep unspoken fears of sexuality and foreign invasion.
Find out more about this edition.
The Vampyre and Other Macabre Tales tells of a monstrous demon – mirthless, cold and ashen-skinned, and yet possessed of an eloquence and beauty that proves fatally alluring to those who fall under the gaze of his ‘dead grey eye’. The predecessor of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Lord Ruthven embodies a seductive evil that inhabits our fantasies and fears no less today than it did two centuries ago. This collection presents The Vampyre alongside 11 ghoulish stories, also written in the 19th century.
