DRACULA Jonathan Harker, a solicitor's clerk from London, travels to Transylvania to settle some business with the mysterious Count Dracula. In England, Harker's fiance, Mina, receives a visit from the count, as does her friend Lucy. Harker returns from his traumatic journey and joins Dr. Van Helsing on a \"vampire hunt\" in an attempt to rescue his beloved Mina. Dracula. By day he sleeps in a tomb beneath his desolate castle. By night he stalks the countryside, driven by a supernatural and deadly hunger. His quiet smile hides razor sharp fangs. His seemingly delicate, white hands are in fact coarse and broad. His touch yields an uncontrollable shudder. His sustenance is the life-blood of others. His victims become helpless under his hypnotic spell. There is no escape from this evil being who inhabits the shadows of the dark and dismal night. This unique edition features illustrations fro the macabre yet whimsical mind of Edward Gorey (1925-2000). In addition to an authoritative text of the novel, it offers the book's famous \"lost\" chapter- \"Dracula's Guest\" - as well as compelling biographical and critical essays by accomplished editor and horror author Marvin Kaye, detailing the creation of Dracula and the life of Stoker. This hand some two-color edition is a must-read for gore and Gorey fans alike.
