Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula by Bram Stoker, Valdimar Ásmundsson


A fascinating expansion of Harker's (Thomas, not Jonathan in this version,) visit with Dracula takes up significantly more of the story and gave me incredibly high hopes for the rest of the story, but it seemed as though, perhaps as a serialized version, suddenly there was too much story to fit in before the publication run was ending?? The story after Harker's escape becomes almost entirely a third person detached telling, almost a summary of the remaining action. I appreciated being able to see notes on some of the differences and why they may have been changed, but the original certainly has a far more thrilling conclusion.
