Introduction by Dacre Stoker, Great, Grandnephew of Bram Stoker.


“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.” ― Bram Stoker

Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, famous for introducing the character of the vampire Count Dracula. The novel tells the story of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women, led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing, follwing Dracula's move from Transylvania to England to find new blood and spread his undead curse .

An excerpt from Dacre Stoker's Introduction:

Black is often described as the absences of color. I, on the other hand, look beyond the mere spectrum of which our eyes can interpret, and see within this volume numerous references and descriptions of the darkness of which black represents. I offer a few examples from Bram’s text:


“By her side stood a tall, thin man, clad in black. His face was turned from us, but the instant we saw it we all recognized the Count.”


“Now and again, through the black mass of drifting cloud, came a straggling ray of moonlight which lit up the expanse.”


“Presently the blackness of the storm had become merged in the darkness of the night.”


I hope you enjoy reading this edition, if Bram’s story gets to be a bit much, and the blackness overcomes, leave the light on… it might help.
