Drafts of Dracula expands on the award-winning Bram Stoker’s Notes for Dracula, which was published in 2008.

Robert Eighteen-Bisang and Elizabeth Miller have done it again! In 2008, they presented a groundbreaking transcription of Bram Stoker’s working notes for Dracula to delighted scholars and fans all over the world. Drafts of Dracula renders their research as a gift that keeps on giving. A decade’s worth of scholarship combined with recent discoveries by the Stoker estate and the London Library have allowed Eighteen-Bisang and Miller to continue their efforts to outline “the birth of Dracula in the mind of Bram Stoker” (as Raymond T. McNally and Radu Florescu put it).

Dracula’s conception and gestation are illustrated by detailed analysis of early drafts of the novel, including “Dracula’s Guest,” the typescript and the dramatic reading of 1897. Hundreds of footnotes on vampire literature and popular culture illustrate how the novel changed and evolved over the years.
