One thought on “The Dracula Archives”

  1. Not badly written but it is, in no way, what the flyleaf implied! I found it in the non-fiction section of the library where books are shelved that deal with other books. This says it is about the writing of Dracula and shows some first person accounts that Bram Stoker used in his research for his book. It is no such thing.
