About the Author

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 - 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. Stoker was bedridden with an unknown illness until he started school at the age of seven, when he made a complete recovery. Of this time, Stoker wrote, "I was naturally thoughtful and the leisure of long illness gave opportunity for many thoughts which were fruitful according to their kind in later years."

When I purchases Lady of the Shroud I was expecting a horror story somehwat in the style of the immortal classic Dracula, but as it turned out my expectations were incorrect. This is not a horror novel at all but rather a Victorian romantic adventure story. The characters though endearing, are never really well drawn. Aunt Janet's Scottish accent is particularly annoying and I found myself rereading paragraphs several times to try to understand what she was saying. The story starts as a mystery that slowly unravels into a romance. Details about the Land of the Blue Mountains and it's political struggles are tedious, and if you don't pay close to them at the beginning of the story you will be scratching your head later on. Entertaining, yes, a classic--no. It is not difficult to see why there are so few printings of this title left. If you are looking for a good supernatural horror novel, other than Dracula, by Stoker I would greatly recommend The Jewel of the Seven Stars instead. It is much scarier and has an interesting mystery element. Be sure to pick up the unabridged version though, the subsequent revision completely changed the ending (and not for the better).

An interesting read from the author of Dracula. I found it different, but good.
