The Lair of the White Worm (Illustrated Edition)
by Bram Stoker
At the peak of his career, Abraham "Bram" Stoker (November 8, 1847 April 20, 1912) was working as an assistant for his friend, Shakespearean actor Sir Henry Irving, a well known and acclaimed actor in his day. But it would be the assistant whose name would outshine the bosss. Stoker, an Irish novelist and short story writer, is known around the globe for his Gothic horror character Dracula. Inspired in part by his friend Irving, as well as the notorious Vlad the Impaler, Stoker studied stories about vampires, but ultimately his Count Dracula would become synonymous with the famous monsters. And drawing off his experience as a newspaper writer, Stoker wrote Dracula as a collection of realistic diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship's logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which made the story that much scarier and unique. Stokers novel The Lair of the White Worm was loosely based on an old English folklore legend about the Lambton Worm, a mythical beast-like dragon that fought John Lambton. This edition of Stokers The Lair of the White Worm is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Stoker, his life, and his work.
