Darren Shan Acknowledges His Indebtedness To Bram Soker

I'M THE BASTARD grandson of Bram Stoker, and proud of it. Of course, I don't mean that I'm genealogically related to the theatrical manager and sometime author - at least, not to the best of my knowledge. But as a writer who works predominantly in the horror field, and as one who has also worked to a large extent on vampires, I feel as close to Bram Stoker as anyone who is not a blood relative could possibly feel. After all, without his ground-breaking novel about a Transylvanian count, my field might very possibly not even exist. DARREN SHAN, Irish Times
