Abraham `Bram' Stoker was born in Dublin in 1847. Often ill during his childhood, he spent much time in bed listening to his mother's grim stories, sparking his imagination. Stoker eventually came to work and live in London, meeting notable authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde. Stoker wrote several stories based on supernatural horror, such as the compelling The Lair of the White Worm, and the most well-known of all his works, the gothic masterpiece Dracula.
