Just getting this in before midnight………Bram Stoker the author of Dracula was born this day in 1847. This was the book that started it all. Before Twilight. Before Buffy. Before everything.
Vampire stories are legend and found in many cultures. But the gothic Prince of Darkness who left his home in Transylvania and traveled to England is the one who started it all. Landing in Whitby , a quaint and charming English coastal town his story starts.
And continues to this day. We can thank Bram Stoker for the sleepless nights and creepy chills we get from the books and movies.
Happy Birthday Bram!
