VARNEY THE VAMPIRE

OR THE

FEAST OF BLOOD

Part One.

A ROMANCE OF EXCITING INTEREST

James Malcolm Rymer

AUTHOR OF

"GRACE RIVERS, OR, THE MERCHANT'S DAUGHTER." The classic 1847 Victorian Serial by James Malcolm Rymer Varney the Vampire first appeared in weekly 'penny dreadful' installments which were gathered into a complete volume in 1847, the year Bram Stoker was born. Sold for a penny a chapter on the streets of London in 1845, Varney the Vampire is a milestone of Vampire fiction, yet ignored and overlooked for nearly 100 years, until now! For a decade or two it was enormously popular and extracts have appeared in vampire anthologies ever since. And almost certainly it inspired Stoker to write Dracula.
