  • WS1888 presents Prof Clive Bloom on 'Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula'

    Rippercast brings to you the October 2016 speaker from the Whitechapel Society 1888, Prof. Cliive Bloom, whose talk focuses on the 1901 Icelandic version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula which was largely rewritten by Valdemar Asmundsson and will be published for the first time in English this December under it’s Icelandic title Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula', translated and annotated by Hans Corneel De Roos. This is not only an important literary discovery, as the contents of Makt Myrkranna also reveal it to be a very early example of the Whitechapel murders in fiction, making it of great interest to students of Ripperology as well.
