Daily Beast: Dracula to rise again

Cheat Sheet - The Daily Beast: "Holy water and Hollywood producers having done their number on Dracula, one of Bram Stoker’s heirs has decided the old vampire needs rescuing. Next October, Dacre Stoker, Bram’s great-grandnephew, will unveil a new book called Dracula: The Undead. It is partly based on some exhumed but unpublished portions of Bram Stoker’s 1897 original. 'Our intent is to give both Bram and Dracula back their dignity,' Dacre Stoker says. And also their economic viability: The book sold for a cool $1 million."
