By Bram Stoker
The first-ever translation into English of a newly found Icelandic model of Bram Stoker’s vintage gothic novel, Dracula
"With the invention of its substantial changes from Dracula, [Powers of Darkness] can have a long-lasting impression at the global of vampire studies."
—John Williams, The big apple instances ebook Review
Powers of Darkness is an enormous literary discovery: In 1900, Icelandic writer and author Valdimar Ásmundsson got down to translate Bram Stoker’s world-famous 1897 novel Dracula. referred to as Makt Myrkranna (literally, “Powers of Darkness”), this Icelandic variation incorporated an unique preface written by way of Stoker himself. Makt Myrkranna used to be released in Iceland in 1901 yet remained undiscovered outdoor of the rustic until eventually 1986, whilst Dracula scholarship used to be astonished via the invention of Stoker’s preface to the e-book. despite the fact that, nobody regarded past the preface and deeper into Ásmundsson’s story.
In 2014, literary researcher Hans de Roos dove into the entire textual content of Makt Myrkranna, purely to find that Ásmundsson hadn’t basically translated Dracula yet had penned a completely re-creation of the tale, with all new characters and a wholly re-worked plot. The ensuing narrative is person who is shorter, punchier, extra erotic, and even perhaps extra suspenseful than Stoker’s Dracula. enormously, Makt Myrkranna hasn't ever been translated or maybe learn open air of Iceland until eventually now.
Powers of Darkness offers the 1st ever translation into English of Stoker and Ásmundsson’s Makt Myrkranna. With marginal annotations via de Roos supplying readers with attention-grabbing old, cultural, and literary context; a foreword by means of Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew and bestselling writer; and an afterword through Dracula student John Edgar Browning, Powers of Darkness will amaze and entertain legions of lovers of Gothic literature, horror, and vampire fiction.
