A viral Ebook Dracula's Guest published 2020 A passage from the manuscript of Dracula.. Bestseller Book Dracula's Guest This is not actually a sequel to Dracula but a collection of short stories by Stoker. I've written a couple of lines about each of them.Dracula’s Guest: This is part of the original Dracula which was cut to reduce the length. It has very little to do with Dracula (the character and the book) and is a bit of an odd story really. That being said they are so very creepy moments in it. The Judge’s House: A haunted house story which is absolutely fantastic. It’s chilling. The Squaw: A particularly gruesome story involving cats. Predictable but contains some fantastic imagery. The Secret of the Growing Gold: A weird ghost story, which I didn’t like very much. A Gipsy Prophecy: The classic format of characters learning a prophecy and then trying to stop it coming true. It doesn’t do what you expect it to do and this is really pleasing. The Coming of Abel Behenna: Two men fall in love with the same woman. Only one can marry her and it seems they will go to any length to ensure they can have her.The Burial of the Rats: This story confused me. It’s mostly a long chase but I just didn’t get what the point of the story was. Mind you, what the title actually means pretty unpleasant…A Dream of Red Hands: The story of a bad dream and a man desperate to make up for past sins. Not exactly a horror story but it makes you think about whether people should be forgiven for their crimes.Crooken Sands: This begins as a very funny story and then turns into a great little psychological tale. I was beginning to think the stories got worse as they went along but this one was one of the best of the book and a great way to end.Overall it's a great collection of gothic horror stories. In some ways it's very much of it's time with women feeling less important (they mostly faint in these stories), though I found that odd considering Dracula portrays some quite strong female characters. If you want some gothic horror then you can't go far wrong with this collection.
