Bram Stoker, born in Dublin in 1847, was part of the artistic community in London, the community that included Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, Arthur Conan Doyle and many others. Although he had never visited Eastern Europe, he had an Hungarian acquaintance named Armin Vambery who liked to spin dark and inspirational tales about the Carpathian Mountains. And, of course, he had read Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu and The Vampyr by John Polidori, the writer who is often credited with the creation of the vampire genre. Stoker's novel, Dracula, was a hit at the time. But he would have been surprised, and quite pleased, to learn that his creation had lived on so long and had inspired so many future authors.
