Irish novelist, short-story writer, biographer, essayist and
critic--Bram Stoker was born in Dublin on November 8, 1847.
Although he claimed that the idea for his classic tale of
Count Dracula came to him in a nightmare, Stoker was
doubtless influenced in part by Arminius VambÃ©ry, the
celebrated Hungarian adventurer and folklore expert who
introduced him to the vampire legends of Eastern Europe. The
author wrote several other works of gothic fiction and
romances. He died in London in 1912.
