After seven years of research (and one nightmare caused by too much crab meat covered in mayonnaise), Bram Stoker wrote and published the seminal work Dracula. An epistolary novel, Dracula tells the story of the titular vampire’s attempted move to England from the point of view of his lawyer, his victims and their friends.

Join us as we discuss the Sisters, syphilis and other fun diseases, Lucy and her men, unintentional comedy, Mina being the perfect woman for being like a man, Dracula as an abuser and Jonathan his triggered victim, Gary Stu van Helsing, and Dracula as Count Not-Really-Appearing-In-This-Book.
