As popular and influential as Bram Stoker's classic tale of nocturnal menace is, that 1897 novel did not invent vampire fiction, nor was it alone in feeding the Gothic fantasies of the Victorian period. IDW Publishing presents an expertly selected menu of outstanding vampire prose stories that either informed or benefited from Bram Stoker's hugely popular creation. These eerie tales of the undead -- some 22 in all -- form the core cannon of classic vampire literature. Chosen and introduced by celebrated literary scholar and author Leslie S. Klinger, with illustrations by horror artist Michael Monomivibul, In the Shadow of Dracula brings to adventuresome readers stories of nocturnal terror that have lived in Stoker's shadow for too long.
