    Constantly updated with new information and relevant images, Stoker on Stoker now includes a glimpse at Bram Stoker’s Lost Journal,  a non-fiction book by Dacre and Dr. Elizabeth Miller, published by London publishing house, Robson Press in 2012. Based on Bram Stoker’s un-published, personal journal, found in an attic on the Isle of Wight, the entries (made between 1871-1881) and the authors’ insights, give a new look at Bram Stoker’s Dublin, and previously unknown personal details from a time in his early life.
