This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. 'The worst parts were the great masses of flesh of the monstrous Worm, in all its red and sickening aspect The sight was horrible enough, but, with the awful smell added, was simply unbearable. The Worm's hole appeared to breathe forth death in its most repulsive forms.' Here are two great, neglected horror novels by Bram Stoker, author of 'Dracula', together in one volume for the first time. It is a double treat for lovers of blood-curdling fantasy fiction. 'The Lady of the Shroud', published here in its full and unabridged form, is a fascinating and engrossing concoction of a vampire tale, Ruritanian adventure story and science fiction romance. The novel fully demonstrates the breadth and ingenuity of Stoker's imagination. The spine-chilling 'The Lair of the White Worm' features a monstrous worm secreted for thousands of years in a bottomless well and able to metamorphose into a seductive woman of a reptilian beauty who survives on her victim's life blood. The novel contains some of Stoker's most graphic and grisly moments of horror. AUTHOR: It has been said of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', that it "not only set the standard for subsequent novels in the horror-mystery genre but also helped establish the vampire as one of the most recognizable figures in the popular arts." Stoker (1847-1912) wrote many other works of some merit, but achieved lasting fame through his iconic invention.
