Biography:

Bram (Abraham) Stoker (1847-1912). Irish novelist and short story writer, Bram Stoker is now remembered for his chilling horror novel Dracula, which has since become legendary. At the age of sixteen he started at Trinity College, Dublin as a student of pure mathematics.

Stoker was born at a time when reports of vampirism were rampant and made the most of these in his tales of horror. His stories were enhanced by the superstitious nature of the people around him, and the protective measures they used to escape the effects of the supernatural evil around them.

In addition to Dracula, certainly his most famous work, Stoker aslwo wrote dramatic criticism and articles for the Dublin Mail. One story, Dracula's Guest, was to have been the opening chapter to Dracula, but the story survives well without it. He also wrote three collections of short stories and twelve novels though none of them are nearly as well known as Dracula.
