About the Book.
Thanks to Dracula Daily, the email newsletter that delivers the classic vampire novel in bite-sized chunks, “an old story about the undead is getting a new life” (NPR). Combining Stoker’s original text alongside reader-generated content, this version of Dracula is a fun and immersive experience, perfect for vampire scholars, Dracula Daily readers, and newcomers to the story.
Inside, you’ll find a rich selection of artwork and memes from the newsletter’s hundreds of thousands of subscribers. From comics celebrating Dracula’s famous wall-climbing ability to armchair analysis of the novel’s complicated love triangles, the witty commentary and colorful fan art brings a unique twist to the classic tale.
