Biographical notes:

Bram (Abraham) Stoker (b. November 8, 1847, Clontarf, Dublin, Ireland-d. April 20, 1912, London, England), studied at Dublin's Trinity College. He took a civil service job, but found it unsatisfying and moonlighted as an unpaid theatre critic. His affection for the theatre led to a partnership with Henry Irving, managing London's Lyceum Theatre. While managing the theatre, Stoker wrote consistently, publishing popular adventure and horror stories as well as non-fiction. Today, he is almost exclusively remembered for the Gothic novella Dracula, an atmospheric and suspenseful yarn about a vampire that took him seven years to complete. Iconic and influential, Dracula has never been out of print and is perhaps even more popular and admired today than when first published.
