An aged poet becomes separated by a long distance from his beloved and dying wife. They were two people from different lives and backgrounds, yet he worked hard to make a name for himself. After many years of toiling, he is distraught that it has taken so long and that they should be separated still at the end. Upon realising that his love has died, he embarks on a journey to the Castle of the King of Death to find her. "The Castle of the King" is a short story by Bram Stoker, first published in 1881 in Stoker's first collection of short stories "Under the Sunset". Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 - 1912) was an Irish author most famous for his 1897 Gothic novel "Dracula", a seminal book that continues to influence the vampire genre in print and film to this day. Other notable works by this author include: "Miss Betty" (1898), "The Mystery of the Sea" (1902), and "The Jewel of Seven Stars" (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
