EPSIODE 150: VAMPIRE LORE WITH DACRE STOKER
Dacre Stoker, great grand-nephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker, joins authors T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas to talk about those creatures of the night, vampires. An author and scholar of all things vampyr, Stoker has written the only official prequel, Dracul with author J.D. Barker, based on years of research into the files and history of Bram Stoker. Dacre shares his insights into vampire lore and reveals interesting details about the book; for example, Bram Stoker had originally written a different and explosive ending to the book that would have changed how we viewed his celebrated story.
British folksinger David Walton narrates an excerpt from Stoker’s prequel, and the hosts are proud to offer a new story from premier horror author, Deborah Drake. The Vampire’s First Rule, narrated by T. Fox Dunham & Cindy Hermann, tells the story of an ancient conflict between two vampires that finally ends in the sacred cave of the Eternal Half-Lighters. Then to finish the show, Dacre shares a true ghost story about his encounter with a bishop’s ghost that haunts the cellars of Marsh’s Library in Dublin, Ireland.
