IDW Publishing presents an expertly selected menu of outstanding vampire stories that either informed or benefited from Bram Stokers hugely popular creation. These eerie tales of the undead - some 22 in all - form the core cannon of classic vampire literature. Chosen and introduced by celebrated literary scholar and author Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Dracula), with illustrations by an array of noted horror artists, In the Shadow of Dracula brings to adventuresome readers stories of nocturnal terror that have lived in Stokers shadow for too long.

Authors include M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, and Bram Stoker himself. Included are whats considered the first true vampire story 1816, as well the classic novella Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu, the first vampire tale with a lesbian theme (its been adapted to comics and film several times), and The Family of the Vourdalak by Aleksei Tolstoy (hes the cousin of the famous one), which gave Boris Karloff one of his greatest roles.
