Russian Folktales by W. R. S. Ralston – Draculea

Russian Folktales by W. R. S. Ralston – Draculea

In the collection of Russian Folktales compiled by William Ralston Shedden-Ralston, there is a section entirely dedicated to ghost and spectre stories. In this section, one of the stories is none other than The Soldier and The Vampire which we talked about yesterday in a little deviation from our scheduled Draculea content. There is actually a reason for that: this document is intrinsically linked to that specific story as it is a part of the commentary that follows it. Of course, as has...

Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu – Draculea

Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu – Draculea

Schalken the Painter is a short story by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu included in the collection titled The Watcher, and other weird stories published in 1894. The story, however, is far older than that and was published for the first time in 1839 in the Dublin University Magazine. Certainly better-known for authoring Carmilla, Le Fanu, as we'll be seeing in the future, has published many other horror stories and contributed to building the character of the vampire that has been growing and...

We're taking another step in our vampirical journey, this time the protagonist is The Singular Death of Morton by Algernon Henry Blackwood. For this segment, ABEditore with their Draculea brings us back to the dawn of the XX century with an author who is famous for his strokes full of mystery.

Ken’s Mystery by Julian Hawthorne – Draculea

Ken’s Mystery by Julian Hawthorne – Draculea

Ken's Mystery by Julian Hawthorne is the first story in the Draculea collection by ABEditore. Published in 1883 in Harper's New Monthly Magazine, it's a short story - but not that short really - told for the most part in the first person by its own protagonist, and in part by one of his friends - who personifies the author - during a visit to the former. As usual, we always recommend that all those who speak Italian also take a look and read the corresponding article on the Bloody Reader blog...

Draculea – A discovery of the bloodline of Darkness

Draculea - Racconti e Documenti di Veri o Presunti atti di Vampirismo is a tome published by ABEditore that collects stories and documents on, you guessed it, the theme of Vampirism. On a website like ours that goes as far as having vampires in its name and that can boast a column like Quarantena col Vampiro of which we are incredibly proud, we couldn't help but pick up our collaboration with the blog Bloody Reader of Bloody Books again and discuss the theme at the same time as them (You can...
