Harry Ludlam – A Biography Of Bram Stoker: Creator Of Dracula (New English Library, 1977)



DRACULA … the most terrifying and macabre character ever to be fictionalised in the field of the supernatural,has been the subject of innumerable books, plays and films and even now, nearly a century after Bram Stoker wrote his book Dracula, the legend continues to horrify and frighten people: the world over.

BUT what of Bram Stoker, the author of this sinister masterpiece? Had he never written his tale, his name would still be remembered as a newspaper editor, scholar, theatre critic and close associate of the actor, Henry Irving. A man of enormous physical stature, he was also a man of enormous and powerful imagination. In this book, Harry Ludlam has with painstaking research and dedication drawn a fascinating picture of Stoker – a man whose name is almost as legendary as Dracula himself.
