Could this little known story by Bram Stoker be the original first chapter to his classic Dracula? This vook brings you the story of Dracula’s Guest and explores the mystery behind it with eleven fascinating videos.
Evidence shows the first 100 pages of the vampire story written originally by Stoker were removed. Many believe Dracula’s Guest is the missing chapter - the original beginning to Dracula, the most read vampire story in history.
Dracula's Guest follows an Englishman on a visit to Munich before leaving for Transylvania. Despite several warnings to not stay out late, the young man decides to leave his carriage to explore an "unholy" village. Quickly, he discovers his mistake as his horses are frightened away and he is left alone to find shelter from a snowstorm. He finds that he has sought refuge in a cemetery, and he must face the supernatural beings that inhabit the area in order to make it through the long night.
This untold story of Dracula was first published in collection of short stories by Bram Stoker called Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories. Dracula’s Guest is by far the most chilling and illuminates the dark origins of Stoker’s vampire stories.

A world-renowned expert on Dracula examines Stoker’s writings and the mystery that shrouds Dracula’s Guest.
