Dracula  (1897) 
by Bram Stoker
Dracula (1897) has been attributed to many literary genres including horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. Although author Bram Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for scores of theatrical and movie interpretations throughout the 20th century.

TO

MY DEAR FRIEND

HOMMY-BEG

 

 

How these papers have been placed in sequence will be made manifest in the reading of them. All needless matters have been eliminated, so that a history almost at variance with the possibilities of later-day belief may stand forth as simple fact. There is throughout no statement of past things wherein memory may err, for all the records chosen are exactly contemporary, given from the standpoints and within the range of knowledge of those who made them.
