Dracula by the Day

This is great. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an epistolary novel, every letter and diary entry given a  date. (And Stoker did a lot of calendar work to make sure it all fit.) Whitney Sorrow is posting the whole novel blog-style, with the entries dated a particular day posted that day. The first entry is for May 3rd, so you don’t have much catching up to do yet; the last one will be November 6th.

There is an RSS feed for it, and this seems to me like one of the best uses since Pepys’ Diaries for the technology.

Special thanks to Alejandro Melchor for tipping me off to this. Having informed friends is like having a bigger brain yourself!
