Back from the dead: the first ever zombie story

Before there was Dracula, there was The Castle in Transylvania. In its first new translation in over 100 years, this is the first book to set a gothic horror story, featuring people who may or may not be dead, in Transylvania.

In a remote village cut off from the outside world by the dark mountains of Transylvania, the townspeople have come to suspect that supernatural forces must be responsible for the menacing apparitions emanating from the castle looming over them.

But a visiting young count scoffs at their fears. He vows to liberate the villagers by pitting his reason against the forces of superstition – until he sees his dead beloved walking the halls of the castle…. 

Synopsis:

This never-before translated tale by Jules Verne, the master of science fiction, is one of his few writings about the supernatural. This eerie gothic story set in a forgotten valley in the mountains of Transylvania, where demons and vampires menace the populace, pits a young stranger against the forces of evil and superstition.

About the Author

Jules Verne was born in Nantes, France in 1828. One of the most imaginative writers of the nineteenth century, he wrote about air, space, and underwater travel long before such things were possible, leading many today to call him “The Father of Science Fiction.” Among his books are A Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World In Eighty Days, and From the Earth to the Moon. He died in 1905.
