Bram Stoker was an Irish author who lived in the period 1847 – 1912. He is best known for his horror novel ”Dracula” but he is to be remembered for many more literary works such as ”The Judge’s House” and ”The Dracula’s guest”. Bram Stoker’s early years were marked by the fact that he was an invalid. This was however seen as an advantage of sorts by him because he meant that it gave him time to think of many things, which he later put to words in his works. Bram Stoker’s novels can be seen as a vivid combination between horror fiction and realism, perfect mixture of the real and the supernatural.
