The legend of Dracula stems from the story of a fifteenth-century warlord: Vlad III, or Vlad the Impaler. Itís a frightening image that has only endured and grown over centuries through hundreds of portrayals in movies, plays, television shows, music, and pop culture in general.

Beyond the story of Dracula, there is a whole industry of vampire-related culture that has continued to grow and evolve ever since Bela Lugosi lurked onto a stage as the sexy and terrifying Count.

Dracula FAQ follows in the series of FAQ books with a glimpse into the arts and culture built over time. Dracula has been around a long time. Bruce Scivallyís glimpse into the famed vampire is exhaustive and reaches far beyond the gothic villain and into the many famed entries in the vampire canon such as Ann Riceís work, the Twilight series, and all the vampire films from big-budget to no-budget.

This is a fun dive into history of an iconic character and many of the unique characters who portrayed Dracula and the various vampires inspired by the Count. As usual, the author uncovers some hidden nuggets about the subject. This is a nice addition to the series of FAQ books and a welcome resource for readers interested in the cultural evolution of a classic monster.
