I mentioned this in the literature forum but wanted to make people who may not travel that far down the selection list aware of it.

I just finished Dracul, written by Dacre Stoker (great grand-nephew of Bram) and J.D. Barker.

I highly recommend it! A prequel to Dracula, it weaves the Stoker family into the Dracula legend. Well written, very successful at capturing a Victorian gothic air.
The style of writing purposely mimics Bram Stoker's style.
Check out some of the reviews and articles written about it - or don't, at least, not until you've read the book to avoid spoilers.

As far as imagery goes, there are some descriptions that could certainly inspire amazing displays. One account in the book that occurred in a morgue was enough to raise hackles on my neck...

Dacre is going to be appearing as a guest at our local fandom convention (Pensacon) in less than two weeks. Will make sure I make it by his table. Thanks for the tip.
