When Irish born Bram Stoker's Dracula was published in 1897,
vampires were creatures of myth and fantasy. It had taken seven
years of research into European folklore and a nightmare (allegedly
caused by eating too much crab) about a vampire king rising from
the grave before the book was finished. There were many adventure
writers at this time penning books about impending threat and
invasion of the Empire and Dracula was well received. However,
despite literary acclaim, Stoker was never able to make much money
from his work and died in 1912 almost penniless. It was not until
the advent of film that a new genre was truly born. From Nosferatu
to the Blade Trilogy vampires are very much here to stay.
