    This collection of nine outlandish and macabre short stories from Bram Stocker was originally published in 1914 with the title Dracula s Guest Other Supernatural Tales It was published as an anthology after Stocker s death by his widow and contained some of his previously published short stories along with an unpublished tale named Dracula s Guest which was discovered in manuscript form from Bram Stocker s papers in 1912.In the preface to the anthology, Florence Bram Stocker, the widow of B This collection of nine outlandish and macabre short stories from Bram Stocker was originally published in 1914 with the title Dracula s Guest Other Supernatural Tales It was published as an anthology after Stocker s death by his widow and contained some of his previously published short stories along with an unpublished tale named Dracula s Guest which was discovered in manuscript form from Bram Stocker s papers in 1912.In the preface to the anthology, Florence Bram Stocker, the widow of Bram Stocker, points to the possibility that the story titled Dracula s Guest included in this compilation was originally written by Stocker as part of the novel Dracula and was later deleted before publishing to make the novelcompact.To his original list of stories in this book, I have added an hitherto unpublished episode from Dracula It was originally excised owing to the length of the book, and may prove of interest to the many readers of what is considered my husband s most remarkable work.Not all the short stories in this anthology are equally riveting yet most of the tales in this collection has all elements of good Gothic horror They are not that dense and gripping like the original Dracula still they can be enjoyed as easy to read tales of terror Stories like Dracula s Guest, The Judge s House, The Squaw and The Gypsy s Prophecy are quite gripping, chilling and satisfying to read If you are a fan of Poe s short stories, then these old fashioned tales of terror and supernatural from Bram Stocker will keep you absorbed

    As I ventured to end my sojourn into literature that bore tales of the supernatural and with a presage of dread, in an effort to diversify my reading habits, I tread not farther than the writers who had earlier bought me great joy with their superior penmanship And with the end of Halloween for the year was drawing to a close, I chose this collection of stories written by the writer who had romanced me with the gothic allure of Dracula Published posthumously by his wife, the primary in the col As I ventured to end my sojourn into literature that bore tales of the supernatural and with a presage of dread, in an effort to diversify my reading habits, I tread not farther than the writers who had earlier bought me great joy with their superior penmanship And with the end of Halloween for the year was drawing to a close, I chose this collection of stories written by the writer who had romanced me with the gothic allure of Dracula Published posthumously by his wife, the primary in the collection, if so can be assumed by the name so given Dracula s Guest and Other Weird Stories told of a harrowing incident encountered by a traveller who is presumably Jonathan Harker It is believed that this particular incident, presented in the form of a short story in the present collection, was initially written by Stoker as part of the tale of Dracula but was later removed by him Though many argue the validity of that, my own feelings rest with Stoker s wife who in the introduction makes a point in favour of the former, for the story could neatly nestle in the greater story However, for the purposes it lacked refinement and much of the inspired gruesome that made Dracula such a favourite The story itself had not much to do with Dracula, but was rather a vague indication at the monster Not quite gripping, and sufficiently lacking in funds of sensationalism Even the other stories in the collection do seem to lack that very essential spice Among them, The Judge s House and The Burial of the Rats do credit some merit The former is a story of a student who in an effort to do away with all distractions of a mundane life, sets out seeking a place that would afford him tranquil environs to pursue his study ends up discovering the Judge s House Disregarding the warnings of the locals, including those of a very weak hearted lady who is given to frequent fainting spells at the prospect of anyone taking up abode in that house On the other hand, the latter although twined its story through and among objects that turn my stomach, it provided a much needed respite from the languor pace of the rest All in all, the collection fails to live up to the pedestal of Stoker s most celebrated work, although each has its redeeming qualities However, the similarity in thought, structure and even to a marked extent the plots that seem to veer to a similar hanging crusade, all very familiar to the writer as the pages were turned but drawing back in distinction, left me very dissatisfied P.S I was kept from reading The Squaw by my abhorrence of reading anything gruesome to the fate of felines Frankly, I am terrified at the prospect of anything happening to the feline extension of the Paul family, and would rather not add to the grim scenarios that plague me at the smallest chance of anything unpleasant befalling them

    Some great stories in this the one about the kitten The Squaw is eye squeezingly and shoulder tensingly horrific, The Judge s House left me nervous about being alone in the house, and A Gipsy Prophecy and A Crystal cup were no less horrific for highly tragic Others, like The Red Stockade , left meconfused than scared, but overall this is a good read.

  6. Nerea says:

    Sublime, no s con cu l de los tres relatos me quedar a si tuviese que elegir uno, pero sin duda ser a con el segundo o con el ltimo.El relato de La casa del juez es espeluznante y El entierro de las ratas me parece sencillamente brillante.No tengo palabras que le hagan justicia, recomendad simo.

  7. Lisa says:

    Oooooh Some eerie stories in here.My favourites were A Dream of Red Hands and The Chain of Destiny The Crystal Cup was a very different type of story from the rest of the collection haunting, tragic, and so well described I could picture each scene.

    With Dracula, Bram Stoker produced an undisputed masterpiece, arguably the greatest horror novel ever But sadly, many of his other works are not just inferior but are flat out poor There are a few highlights in this collection of short stories, like the often anthologized ghost story The Judge s House, the less well known but excellent suspense tale The Burial of the Rats, and the amusing doppelganger story The Crooken Sands which shows Stoker s humorous side But most of the other sto With Dracula, Bram Stoker produced an undisputed masterpiece, arguably the greatest horror novel ever But sadly, many of his other works are not just inferior but are flat out poor There are a few highlights in this collection of short stories, like the often anthologized ghost story The Judge s House, the less well known but excellent suspense tale The Burial of the Rats, and the amusing doppelganger story The Crooken Sands which shows Stoker s humorous side But most of the other stories run from mediocre to poor
