Google remembers Bram Stoker with a Doodle

| |

Before all the glittery Team Edward, is the romantic literary Abraham "Bram" Stoker's Dracula! And today - 8th November, Google is honoring the author with a Doodle.

Bram Stoker was born in Dublin, Ireland on November 8th, 1847. He written a dozen novels and a few collections of short stories in his 40-year career, but of course, everyone know him for famously for his 1897 novel "Dracula"! It is the ancestor of vampire novels and alot has spun off from the novel. He created the most famous "monster" in history and Dracula‘s blend of romance and horror lead it to be a widely read and studied novel still, even in a culture saturated with vampire references.

Stoker died in 1912 at the age of 64 and this marks his 165th birthday (if he's still alive). I'm glad he created the vampire love story so that there is Twilight! I can't wait for the grand ending of Twilight end Nov! =)
