Dracula Unbound by Brian W. Aldiss
Details: Paperback, 275 pages
Published: May 1st 1992 by HarperPrism
Synopsis: When Bram Stoker wrote one of the most famous novels in the world – Dracula – most people didn’t realise that he had a little outside ‘inspiration’. This came in the form of one Joe Bodenland from the 1990s who travelled back in time to secure Stoker’s help on a desperate mission to save humanity from the Undead…
For Dracula is no mere character conjured up by a gifted scribe – he is undead and kicking, shrouded in a wickedness bred by centuries of evolution. Stoker joins Bodenland in a crusade to exterminate all vampires once and for all. But the trail which begins in Utah in the 21st century ends far away in space and time, in aclimax of devastating destruction.
A great page-whipping adventure merging supernatural horror with breathtaking science fantasy, Dracula Unbound displays Brian Aldiss at his romantic and imaginative best.

Vampires: Back in Time to the First Darkness – The Original Stories
Here come the creatures of the night, in eight timeless tales of horror that have terrified generations and inspired the recent flowering of vampire literature. Discover classics of the genre, such as John Polidori’s The Vampyre (written by Lord Byron’s physician) and Carmilla, the novella that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula and provoked a scandal with its lesbian undercurrent. This fascinating collection also features Johann Ludwig Tieck, Sheridan LeFanu, Guy de Maupssant, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (and his beloved detective, Sherlock Holmes), E.F. Benson, and Stoker himself, with “Dracula’s Guest”–believed to be the original first chapter of his novel, excised by the publisher.
