Author Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of "Dracula" author Bram Stoker, has written a sequel to the classic vampire novel with screenwriter Ian Holt, receiving the official blessings of the Stoker Estate, to fast-track the novel for a big screen adaptation.

The new novel will be available October 13.

"...'Dracula: The Un-Dead' is a bone-chilling sequel based on Bram Stoker's own handwritten notes for characters and plot threads excised from the original edition.

Written with the blessing and cooperation of Stoker family members, 'Dracula: The Un-Dead' begins in 1912, twenty-five years after Dracula "crumbled into dust."

The 'Van Helsing' protégé, 'Dr. Jack Seward', is now a disgraced morphine addict obsessed with stamping out evil across Europe, while an unknowing 'Quincey Harker', the grown son of 'Jonathan' and 'Mina', leaves law school for the London stage, only to stumble upon the troubled production of "Dracula," directed and produced by Bram Stoker himself.

The play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents' terrible secrets, but before he can confront them he experiences evil in a way he had never imagined. One by one, the band of heroes that defeated Dracula a quarter-century ago are being hunted down.

Could it be that Dracula somehow survived their attack and is seeking revenge? Or is there another force at work whose relentless purpose is to destroy anything and anyone associated with Dracula...?"
