Daily Dose Pick: Dracula the Un-Dead

With Dracula the Un-Dead, Dacre Stoker (Bram’s great-grandnephew) and Ian Holt revive the original vampire king, just in time for Halloween.

This authorized sequel picks up 25 years after the classic Dracula, and is based largely on Bram Stoker’s handwritten notes for characters and plot threads. Taking a new generation into account, it features Van Helsing’s morphine-obsessed protégé; Mina and Jonathan Harker’s lawyer-turned-actor son; and even the elder Stoker himself as a London theater director.

Check out the official Dracula the Un-Dead website, follow the authors’ blog, read The Guardian‘s analysis of the project, and buy the book.
