Bram Stoker and vampire literature

102909 010The HBLL is hosting a blood drive in the WSC on Tuesday afternoon, and Special Collections was asked to bring some vampire books to entertain the donors!

We’ll be featuring a first edition of Twilight from our Mormon Literary Authors collection and a signed first edition of Dracula from our Victorian Collection. If you really love vampire lit, come to Special Collections and peruse some of the Gothic tales that influenced Bram Stoker, like Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White and Charles Maturin’s Melmoth the Wanderer. We also have more of Stoker’s fiction, like his first novel, The Snake’s Pass (1890) or the horror tale The Lair of the White Worm (1911). We promise we won’t ask for a donation of blood before you enter the reading room.
