Reading Dracula

Thanks to the power of twitter, I have found a blog that is publishing Dracula in “real time.” Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an epistolary novel, which is a novel written as a series of letters or diary entries. The blog is adding new entries on a the day that it was written by the narrator “so that the audience may experience the drama as the characters would have.”

I have never read Dracula but I have subscribed to the Dracula Atom feed and will be following along. This is a great use of social media and I suspect others will publish epistolary novels this way.
