Best Ghost and Horror Stories

by Bram Stoker

While best known for literature's greatest, most popular, and most famous vampire novel, Dracula, Bram Stoker also wrote superlative short stories. Indeed, he was a genius at creating horror within the confines of a short tale. Now readers can sample Stoker's mastery in this treasury of fourteen spine-tingling stories. Not all the selections deal with the ghostly and supernatural, but they are always bizarre, and some--like "The Squaw" and "The Burial of the Rats"--are equal to Poe at his best. In addition to these two masterly tales, the collection includes "The Crystal Cup," "The Chain of Destiny," "The Castle of the King," "The Dualists" (probably Stoker's most horrifying story), "The Judge's House," "The Secret of the Growing Gold," "A Dream of Red Hands," "Crooken Sands," "Dracula's Guest," and three more. Lovers of occult and supernatural fiction will delight in this inexpensive collection of ghost and horror stories, called by Stephen King "absolutely champion short stories."

The Burial of the Rats

This story was first published in book form in 1914 in Stoker's third collection of short stories Dracula's Guest And Other Weird Stories

Drácula

by Bram Stoker

Los mejores libros jamás escritos Mucho más que una novela gótica, Drácula es un ejercicio literario excepcional. Jonathan Harker viaja a Transilvania para cerrar un negocio inmobiliario con un misterioso conde que acaba de comprar varias propiedades en Londres. Después de un viaje plagado de ominosas señales, Harker es recogido en el paso de Borgo por un siniestro carruaje que lo llevará, acunado por el canto de los lobos, a un castillo en ruinas. Tal es el inquietante principio de una novela magistral que alumbró uno de los mitos más populares y poderosos de todos los tiempos: Drácula. La presente edición incluye una detallada cronología y el prefacio del reputado catedrático y crítico Christopher Frayling, donde se analiza la figura de Stoker y las circunstancias que propiciaron la creación de Drácula. Asimismo, la perspicaz introducción a cargo del especialista Maurice Hindle reflexiona sobre los aspectos más polémicos en torno al origen del prototipo vampírico. «No había nadie por allí, excepto un hombre alto y flaco, de nariz ganchuda y barba en punta y entrecana. Tenía una mirada dura y fría y unos ojos de color rojo.»

Dracula

by Bram Stoker

During a business visit to Count Dracula's castle in Transylvania, a young English solicitor finds himself at the center of a series of horrifying incidents. Jonathan Harker is attacked by three phantom women, observes the Count's transformation from human to bat form, and discovers puncture wounds on his own neck that seem to have been made by teeth. Harker returns home upon his escape from Dracula's grim fortress, but a friend's strange malady -- involving sleepwalking, inexplicable blood loss, and mysterious throat wounds -- initiates a frantic vampire hunt. The popularity of Bram Stoker's 1897 horror romance is as deathless as any vampire. Its supernatural appeal has spawned a host of film and stage adaptations, and more than a century after its initial publication, it continues to hold readers spellbound.

But worse, Harker's actions introduce Dracula to London. Soon afterwards, the Count embarks on a reign of seduction and terror. And all, it seems, who encounter the charismatic Eastern European aristocrat - a succession of madmen, physicians and beautiful women - are never seen in daylight again...Bram Stoker's DRACULA has inspired countless movies, books, and plays since it's first publication in 1897. Few, if any, have been fully faithful to Stoker's original, best-selling novel of mystery and horror, love and death, sin and redemption. But in DRACULA, Stoker created a new word for terror, a new myth to feed our nightmares, and a character who will outlive us all.

3 May. Bistritz. - Left Munich at 8:35 P. M. , on 1st May, arriving at Vienna early next morning; should have arrived at 6:46, but train was an hour late. Buda-Pesth seems a wonderful place, from the glimpse which I got of it from the train and the little I could walk through the streets. I feared to go very far from the station, as we had arrived late and would start as near the correct time as possible.
