Widely believed to be the deleted first chapter of Dracula, “Dracula’s Guest,” taken from Bram Stoker’s collection of short stories, follows an Englishman, presumed to be Jonathan Harker, on a visit to Munich en route to Transylvania. Despite warnings from his hotelier, the Englishman leaves the safety of his carriage and wanders towards an abandoned “unholy” village.

Published in 1914, several years after Bram Stoker's death by his widow, Dracula's Guest is one of several stories that Stoker had wished to publish as a supplement to his most famous novel. Dracula. Join him as he drags the reader out into the hills outside of Munich, Germany, into the dark of the night on one of the most terrifying nights of the year-- Walpurgisnacht, or The Witches Night. A wild storm, a city of the dead, werewolves and vampires all convene on this horrifying journey to the brink and back again.
Complete with a Life & Times section for each author, which offers insights into their lives, works and the time of publication, and a handy glossary adapted from the Collins English Dictionary, this Collins Classics Collection will enhance your reading experience.
DRACULA: This dark, brooding and powerfully atmospheric novel is a classic of gothic literature, casting light on the darkness of the human psyche, and exploiting our deepest fears.
TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION: Including Poe’s most terrifying, grotesque and haunting short stories, Tales of Mystery and Imagination is the ultimate collection of the infamous author’s macabre works.
THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE: Stevenson's quintessential novella of the Victorian era epitomizes the conflict between psychology, science and religious morality, but is fundamentally a triumphant study of the duality of human nature.
FRANKENSTEIN: In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness with rich language and evocative imagery.
Bram Stoker, the master of horror and dark mind behind the most famous vampire novel in history—Dracula—brings us to the edge of our chairs again with a tale of a different variety. Here the horrors are not vampires, nor are they werewolves. Here the horrors are poverty and vicious, snarling rats. A young man finds himself (foolishly) wandering beyond the city walls of 1850s Paris, making his way into the dust piles and garbage gatherings of the paupers. Living among the rags and the war-torn are giant, beady eyed rats. Hideous beasts that clean a dead (or dying) human body down to its skeleton before the flesh is even cold.
Add to that a swampy quagmire and some curious psychic insights, and you have a masterful tale of the macabre that is not for the feint of heart.
‘But it was not only the heart-rending sound that almost paralysed poor Mimi with terror. What she saw was sufficient to fill her with evil dreams for the remainder of her life...’
At the estate of Castra Regis in Derbyshire, mystery lurks in the woods, a place where snakes dwell and murderous deeds take place in the darkness. The behaviour of local residents Arabella March and Edgar Caswall further arouse the suspicions of Adam Salton, recently arrived at the invite of his great-uncle. Determined to quell the supernatural malevolence in his midst, Adam embarks on a quest to uncover evil and restore harmony.
The final novel from the author of ‘Dracula’, ‘The Lair of the White Worm’ is a lesser-known but well-loved classic from the master of gothic horror.
