The End of Sherlock; the Rise of Dracula

No, no...this does not mean that Holmes failed in his task to overthrow Dracula in Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula, but it does mean that I finished the book, and the logical progression would be into Dracula itself. I'm actually sinking my teeth into Dracula: The Connoisseur's Guide by Leonard Wolf, which does not contain the original book, but is full of the same sort delicious and bloodcurdling facts that I so enjoyed in the copy of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that I was reading earlier. After this, I'll read Bram Stoker's novel. So far, this summer of Gothic novels is going better than I had expected. Not only am I reading some wonderful literature, but I'm also getting my fill of history. :3
