Dracula

by Bram Stoker

This release is a reformatting of Project Gutenberg's version of Dracula. And as such inherits the lack of italics in various portions of the text.

Stoker uses italics to provide emphasis and nuance to his characters' thoughts. Unfortunately PG tend to discount the typographic necessity of italics and this release suffers for that lack of sensitivity.

The only no-cost version of Dracula that I have found that does include italics is Barnes and Nobles's classic series.

My rating indicates my dislike for merely tarting-up and copying a poorly presented edition.

Author of the Day

David Niall Wilson
David Niall Wilson has had experiences in real life that can rival anything you would find in a novel. It is a good thing too, as the stories he collected while walking these strange and interesting paths has shaped him as a writer. David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
