BeschreibungWe know, from Bram Stoker's great book, of Count Dracula's adventures in the 1890s as one of the 'undead'. But how did he come to be 'undead'? Using intense historical research and a good deal of speculation, The Dracula Papers, Book I: The Scholar's Tale is the first in a series of four books which attempt to answer that question.
