Dublin's Lord Mayor Proposes New Bridge be Named to Honour Bram Stoker

"Vampires are inescapable in popular culture, and none more infamous than Stoker’s Dracula.  So on April 20th, sleep until dusk, avoid garlic and raise a glass of red wine to Mr. Stoker.  Although he may have died one hundred years ago, not even a stake to the heart can snuff out his legacy."

"Bram Stoker is a century dead but as active as ever. Long live Bram Stoker."

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS' TRIBUTE TO BRAM STOKER 1-10-12


    2012 marks the Centennial of Bram Stoker's death, and serendipitously, the Centennial of the birth of Universal Studios.

    Universal is marking its 100th anniversary this year with a yearlong celebration of its cinematic legacy. Of great interest to fans of classic horror is the news that Universal will restore 13 of its classic films, including Dracula (1931), and Dracula Spanish (1931).

    The film rights for Dracula were sold to Universal in 1930 by Bram Stoker's widow Florence and his son Noel, and the rest - as they say - is history.

    “This is a proud moment for all of us who’ve had the privilege of working at Universal Pictures,” Ron Meyer, Universal Studios president and CEO, said in a statement. “Our centennial is designed to bring special memories back to longtime movie lovers and fans, and to engage new audiences with our extraordinary library of films for the first time. Our goal, 100 years later, is to preserve, restore and continue the iconic legacy of this studio for generations to come.”

This toast to Bram is from someone who shares the same last name, and possibly the same blood. I raise my glass to you, Bram, your accomplishments in life, and your ongoing presence in pop culture, and your spirit which never died.

I am proud to be a Stoker .... however distant.

If not for Bram Stoker we'd not have one of the most fearsome and easily recognizable characters in modern fiction.   Dracula! Thank you so much, good sir!!

Bram Stoker Centenary.....on Magia Posthuma


    Those who are on the lookout for the marvelous in fiction can always rely on Mr. Bram Stoker to supply the want. Mr. Bram Stoker was a Dublin journalist .... and he has a fine free Dublin journalist imagination....

"It will be taped and broadcast later," said director Steve Carlisle. “We are going to shoot it (on video) so it can be televised too,” he said. The show honors the 100th anniversary of Stoker’s death.

....Still in the realm of fantasy, vampire fans will want to pause to say a "prayer for the undead" instead of the usual version, to commemorate the death in 1912 of Bram Stoker. He wrote Dracula, and created the world's most fascinating vampire. This suave blood-sucker became a mega-star, earning mega-millions from the 50 or so movie and TV versions that have been made.

Would it not be fun to have a retrospective of the best of the Dracula films, hosted by Christopher Lee, who is still alive and appearing in movies?
