Van Helsing to Anita Blake & Harry Dresden?
As I read DRACULA, Iam amazed that Stoker's tale is so contemporary & well-written (overlooking the Victorian excess.) Even more amazing is the way this story still influences horror fiction.
Agree entirely -- including some inspiration for Voldemort's abilities (see my earlier post in the Dracula forum).

Guess I should read the Harry Potter series, huh? I'm 1 of the 7 people in the USA who hasn't.BTW I think DailyLit is wonderful. I bought DRACULA many years ago, but never even opened it. Now, I'm on Chapter 26.

Of all the books I haven't read yet, Dracula is one of them. I've read all 7 Harry Potter's, and seen all 7 season's of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but still have not read Dracula. Too Funny! John (jfbpat)

Back on Daily Lit, I've been away for awhile but I hope to immerse myself in fine literature again. John

Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist was the international bestseller that was made in to a movie. It isn't on dailylit, but if anyone wants something more up-to-date on vampires its a good read.

dreamdust: I had no idea that film was based on a book. The film was amazing. I will have to try and find it.

He is considered (Lindqvist) Sweden's Stephen King. And is well worth the search, a fascinating writer that stands apart. Enjoy!
