of Bram Stoker’s Work

The World’s Work,

An Illustrated Magazine of National Efficiency and Social Progress,

published in 1907 by London’s William Heinemann, included a section entitled,

Ireland in 1907: An Editorial Appreciation.

The following two articles were written by Bram Stoker.

On the former site of Dublin’s infamous Donnybrook Fair

the ambitious Irish International Exhibition Halls opened in May of 1907.

Read    The Great White Fair     by Bram Stoker.

Read     The World's Greatest Shipbuilding Yard     by Bram Stoker,

in which he extolled the efficiency of Harland and Wolff’s shipbuilding yard in Belfast.

One of the shipyard’s greatest achievements was construction of the ill-fated Titanic.

Ironically, the luxury ocean liner sank on April 15,

just five days before Bram Stoker passed away, on April 20, 1912.

Newspapers around the world were filled with unfolding details of the tragedy’s aftermath,

and Bram Stoker’s death got far less notice than if April of 1912 had been an ordinary April.

Bram Stoker’s “The Jewel of Seven Stars”

Posted on September 20, 2012 by skullsinthestars

Late at night, barrister Malcolm Ross is awakened from a pleasant dream by a pounding on his door.  A policeman is waiting for him there, with an urgent summons from Margaret Trelawny, a young woman whom Ross had recently met and become enamored with.  Margaret’s father Abel, a noted collector of ancient Egyptian antiquities, has succumbed to a mysterious illness, rendering him comatose.  Worse, at the same time he has suffered an even more mysterious life-threatening injury.  In desperation, Margaret has summoned Ross, the only man she feels she can trust, to help her protect her father from an unknown threat.

So begins the novel The Jewel of Seven Stars, written in 1903 by the master of horror fiction, Bram Stoker....(read the rest, it's quite good)
