The Dracula Society

In 2022, Bram Stoker’s influential novel turns 125 and in such a special year for this unique book, why not join the Dracula Society? Since it is named after one of the most evocative titles in the whole genre, and one of the most enduring and influential of Gothic novels, the Dracula Society naturally devotes a good deal of its attention to Dracula, the 1987 novel, and its author, Bram Stoker.

However, the Dracula Society’s field of interest embraces the entire Gothic literary genre, and incorporates, too, all stage and screen adaptations, and the sources of their inspiration in myth and folklore. We cater for lovers of “the vampire and his kind” – werewolves, reanimated mummies, mad scientists and their creations, and all the other monsters spawned by the Gothic genre.
