Dracula's Guest (by Stephen Fry)

For tonight's countdown to Halloween post (although I already blogged one in French), I thought I'd do something lighter, since it is Monday and all. So here is a monologue of Stephen Fry which parodies Dracula, my favourite horror novel. Apparently, its official title is The Letter, but I have known it as Dracula's Guest and found it at complete random, when I was looking for a dramatization of the short story. Fry mocks with affection the tropes of Gothic horror and vampire fiction, including the epistolary narrative, and it is hilarious.
