  • Dracul

  • Inspired by the notes DRACULA's creator left behind, Dracul is a riveting, heart-stoppingly scary novel of Gothic suspense . . .

    'Scary as hell. Gothic as decay' Josh Malerman

    Dracul reveals not only the true origins of Dracula himself, but also of his creator, Bram Stoker . . . and of the elusive, enigmatic woman who connects them.

    It is 1868, and a 22-year-old Bram Stoker has locked himself inside an abbey's tower to face off against a vile and ungodly beast. He is armed with mirrors and crucifixes and holy water and a gun - and is kept company by a bottle of plum brandy. His fervent prayer is that he will survive this one night - a night that will prove to be the longest of his life.

    Desperate to leave a record of what he has witnessed, the young man scribbles out the events that brought him to this point - and tells an extraordinary tale of childhood illness, a mysterious nanny, and stories once thought to be fables now proven true.

    BBC adaptation of Bram Stoker's original Dracula is out now, by Steve Moffat and Mark Gatiss - the team behind Sherlock . . .

J. D. Barker was born and raised in Illinois and then moved to Florida where he gained a degree in business from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.
