-- Subtitle -- Death offers no release when the dead walk the earth. -- Description -- Dracula is a sixteen hour audiobook by Bram Stoker. -- Excerpt -- If my ears did not deceive me there was a gasp and a low wail, as of a half smothered child. The women closed round, whilst I was aghast with horror. But as I looked, they disappeared, and with them the dreadful bag. There was no door near them, and they could not have passed me without my noticing. They simply seemed to fade into the rays of the moonlight and pass out through the window, for I could see outside the dim, shadowy forms for a moment before they entirely faded away. -- About the Story -- Dracula, written by Irish author Bram Stoker while managing the world-famous Lyceum Theatre in London, was first published on May 18, 1897. Stoker spent years researching European folklore, drawing heavily on Emily Gerard's 1885 essay "Transylvania Superstitions." Dracula is an epistolary novel, comprised of fictional diary entries, correspondences, and newspaper clippings. -- Credits -- Written by Bram Stoker Performed by Ken Richman Art by Rene Blom Music by James Guymon Produced by MechMuse Audio Anthology at -- 1:534A45:H:N:16:1 -- neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
