It's Bram Stoker's Birthday!!

Happy 165th Birthday, Bram Stoker!!

Without you, the Gothic world would not be what it is today. Dracula was a unique work of genius and a book I love very much. A book that has inspired the imagination of countless readers and will continue to do so, just as it was inspired by the Gothic tradition to come before it. I'm looking at you, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla.

Oh, and check out this fun Google doodle for Stoker's birthday... Very nice work, Google!! Very nice, indeed. I love how well it represents Dracula. Now, go to Google (November 8th) and click the awesome graphic to see more information on Stoker. For me, seems like the perfect day to start stoker's romance novel, Lady Athlyne. Absolutely blew my mind to find out he'd written a romance!
