A Book Review
"Dracula The Undead" by Dacre Stroker and Ian Hold is a sequel to Bran Stroker's "Dracula". The principle author is a descendant of Bram and does a wonderful job of crafting a continuation of the Dracula story. The inclusion of actual events (no spoilers here!), Bram's notes, and Bram himself are nice touches. Jack the Ripper makes an appearance, too. The author's (and other scholars') notes at the end explain where some of the names came from and how historical events fit into the context of the story. It is a fast paced read and certainly not for the faint of heart - people are set afire, impaled and fall of cliffs. I enjoyed the story even though I usually am not a fan of vampire stories. The historical aspect of the story is what intrigued me the most.
