According to the Vancouver Sun, Canadian resident and Bram Stoker descendant, Dacre Stoker, has written a sequel to his great uncle’s novel that started it all. The book is entitled Dracula: The Un-dead and “is set 25 years after the events of the 1897 novel, and focuses on Quincey — the son of the ill-fated Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray from the original tale.”

When asked to comment on the current Twilight craze Dacre Stoker said, “They call them “sparkly vamps,” he says. “And I’m trying to say we’re all born from that same page that Bram wrote. Every generation rediscovers it. And while (Meyer’s) vampires may be different, she’s bringing a whole new generation of young vampire fans who eventually are going to get a little older and want to see other vampire stories and what their roots are.”

You can check out Dacre Stoker’s site here for full details on the book.
So what do you think? Any interest in this sequel?
