BACKGROUND TO THIS WORK
Dracula–The Devil’s Nosferatu continues the course of events established in the prequel novel, Within the Glass Darkly. The novel can be read as a sequel or as a story in its own right.
By way of homage to Bram Stoker, the author has included a fresh reinterpretation of Stoker’s Dracula within the pages of the novel. Several familiar characters from Stoker’s work feature throughout the book, which develops the original plot of its sequel novel, Within the Glass Darkly.
Dracula-The Devil's Nosferatu traverses centuries of vampire lore and further reveals new aspects to the origin of the Nosferatu. The story covers several eras, from ancient history to the 15th and 19th centuries. The author has also used details of actual historic events to enhance and develop the plot throughout the novel.
The story is as much about the human struggle to learn methods by which they can confront and defeat the preternatural creatures as it is about the true nature of the vampire. To some extent the book is an account of the Vampire as originally presented in Victorian literature, paying due homage to Le Fanu and Stoker. The novel deliberately mirrors that earlier time in Gothic novel writing and reveals a possible reason for the historic and fictional Dracula becoming inseparable within this genre.
