{February 19, 2011}   Bram Stoker And Dracula

Bram Stoker’s Dracula was first offered for sale in London on May 26, 1897 and was apparently inspired by a nightmare involving a giant crab. Stoker, born in 1847, was very sick as a child and could not walk until the age of seven, a situation that some speculate may have had a psychological affect on his writing in later years.
