About the Book

Bram Stoker wrote a short story named "Dracula's Guest." A young Englishman is followed in "Dracula's Guest" as he travels to Transylvania. The young guy subsequently leaves his carriage and walks off, disregarding the hotel owner's advice to arrive on time. After a few hours, it starts to snow as he approaches a barren valley; as a dark storm intensifies, he seeks refuge in a forest of cypress and yew trees. Soon, the moonlight reveals his location as a cemetery, and he finds himself in front of a marble tomb with a huge iron spike embedded in the roof. The Englishman's problems are still far from over. As he slowly comes to his senses after the ordeal, he experiences a feeling of disgust that he associates with a warm sensation in his chest and the licking of his throat. The horsemen who first discover the Englishman unconscious in a tomb describe him as an animal that is "a wolf-and yet not a wolf." Additionally, they observe that blood is on the tomb while his neck is unblooded. When the men later return the Englishman to his hotel, they tell him that it was none other than his eager host Count Dracula who had sent a telegram warning the Maître d'hôtel of "dangers from snow and wolves and night."
