Waterstones Says

There were vampire books before Dracula but it is Stoker’s gothic epic that has come to define the horror genre more than any other novel. From its iconic tropes – the forbidding Transylvanian castle, the repressed sexuality, the epistolary narrative – to its now-familiar cast of characters, such as Mina Murray, Van Helsing and, of course, the eponymous Count, Dracula has lost none of its power to terrify and enthrall.

Bram Stoker's peerless tale of desperate battle against a powerful, ancient vampire, the Penguin Classics edition of Dracula is edited with notes and an introduction by Maurice Hindle, as well as a preface by Christopher Frayling.

When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula purchase a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries in his client's castle. Soon afterwards, disturbing incidents unfold in England: a ship runs aground on the shores of Whitby, its crew vanished; beautiful Lucy Westenra slowly succumbs to a mysterious, wasting illness, her blood drained away; and the lunatic Renfield raves about the imminent arrival of his 'master'.

In the ensuing battle of wills between the sinister Count and a determined group of adversaries - led by the intrepid vampire hunter Abraham van Helsing - Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing into questions of identity, sanity and the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.
