Dracula / Dracula’s Guest
by Bram Stoker
Dracula is Bram Stoker’s classic gothic tale of Count Dracula, one of the most famous characters ever created in fiction, his relationship with Jonathan and Mina Harker, pursuit by Professor van Helsing and ultimate destruction in the name of love. Intent on immigrating to England, Count Dracula enlists the services of Jonathan Harker to arrange the purchase of a suitable residence. Intrigued by the young Harker and his beautiful wife, Mina, Dracula sets in motion a series of events that threatens the sanity of all. Widely believed to be the deleted first chapter of Dracula, “Dracula’s Guest,” taken from Bram Stoker’s collection of short stories, follows an Englishman, presumed to be Jonathan Harker, on a visit to Munich en route to Transylvania. Despite warnings from his hotelier, the Englishman leaves the safety of his carriage and wanders towards an abandoned “unholy” village.
