Best known today as the author of Dracula, Bram Stoker also wrote several other works, including The Jewel of Seven Stars, Lady Athlyne, and The Lair of the White Worm. While he is largely thought of as a Gothic author, he also employs science and technology in his writings. This book examines Stoker's familiarity with scientific discoveries of his day and his blending of science and technology with supernatural subject matter. Stoker, then, emerges as an early writer of science fiction. In addition, this book shows him to be a thoughtful critic of the role of science in society.
