9780884111344: Lady of the Shroud

The tale of Rupert Sent Leger, who has inherited huge amount of money under one condition: to keep it, he must help the people of the Blue Mountain gain their independence. Visited by a young and beautiful lady, he is in despair about whether she might be a vampire. Set in the early nineteenth century, Brams fiction The Lady of the Shroud is full of mystical and super-natural elements. A brilliant presentation of a lady who appears always in a shroud, this work engrosses the readers. The Balkan lands are presented and a slight political touch is also given towards the end. Mesmerizing!Abraham “Bram” Stoker was an Irish novelist and short story writer. During his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. Stoker supplemented his income by writing novels; the best known being the vampire tale Dracula which was published in 1897. Before writing Dracula, Stoker spent several years researching European folklore and stories of vampires. After Irving’s death he managed productions at the Prince of Wales Theatre and was also on the staff of the Daily Telegraph, but he concentrated mainly on his writings. In 1906 he brought out his life of Irving, which proved very successful.

About the Author:

Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker' s writing was greatly influenced by his father' s interest in theatre and his mother' s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.
