Happy Birthday, Bram Stoker!



Too bad Bram Stoker lacked immortality like the vampires he wrote about. If he were alive today, Mr. Stoker would have been 165 years old. Known mostly for his portrayal of vampires in Dracula, Bram Stoker possessed a passion for writing supernatural fiction. If you’ve never taken the time to read the aforementioned dark classic, now is the perfect time to do it. Don’t cheat and watch the movie, either. Doing that would only serve you right, as it’s possibly one of the worst film adaptations made. It’s hard to tell which is worse, the accents or the acting. Regardless, do yourself a favor and download Dracula on your eReader.

If you find yourself in London, you can visit Bram Stokers ashes at the Golders Green Crematorium. According to Wikipedia, “visitors must be escorted to the room the urn is housed in, for fear of vandalism.”

If you have an interest in supernatural fiction, check out this collection of short stories by Xicano Sol.
