I was making good progress on Steve's The Shining, but I am going to be preoccupied by another novel, Dracula by Bram Stoker. I have to read it for my World Literature class. I'm four chapters in and really digging it. The Count has already made an impression on me.

I first read Dracula at the age of 14, and it left a lifelong impression on me. I've re-read it probably twice now and it is a lovely novel. It will never grow old....

I read above my average while recovering from my hip surgery. Included in my accomplishments was (Stoker's) Dracula. I was happy to have finally read the book, and was impressed and not surprised that it set a successful mythical stage for the monster.

Excellent. I first read that when I was a teenager.

Here are some classic horror novels you should read:

Dracula - Bram Stoker
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde - RL Stevenson
The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde
The Turn of the Screw - MR James
The Castle of Otranto - Horace Walpole (regarded as the first "gothic" story)

I'm reading Frankenstein at the moment. Had me hooked from the start. I'm at the part where the creature is telling his side of the story.

I'll add The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux to the list. I've read it 3 times and each time I am so taken with the story and amazed that no one has ever attempted to film it as it is written. No movie I have ever seen (or that insipid Broadway musical) has done it justice.

Are we the only two gay men that didn't care for the musical? ;-D
