Halloween Which Came First … Frankenstein or Dracula?

FrankensteinFrankenstein featured in the novel written by Mary Shelley about eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was nineteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty-one. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley’s name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.

Count Dracula

Count Dracula is the title character and primary antagonist of Bram Stoker’s 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula. He is described as the archetypal vampire.  However, some aspects of this well-known character were inspired by the 15th century Romanian general ‘Vlad III, the Impaler’ who was also known as ‘Dracula’.
