Bram Stoker's contract for Dracula.

The Independent featured an interesting article on Bram Stoker's UK contract for Dracula that he wrote himself, which will be part of a new edition of the novel. He (no fan of literary agents, apparently) received a 20-percent royalty on the book, but had less favorable terms in the United States.

Valancourt Books' new edition of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Parasite (1894) and Stoker's The Watter's Mou (1894) features a 1907 interview of Conan Doyle by Stoker.
