Dracula’s Guest

The short story “Dracula’s Guest” was posthumously published in 1914, two years after Stoker’s death. It was, according to most contemporary critics, the deleted first (or second) chapter from the original manuscript and the one which gave the volume its name, but which the original publishers deemed unnecessary to the overall story.
