DRACULA: The Evidence- Van Helsing’s Dream Kickstarter from Beehive Books

Every so often we find a Kickstarter campaign that we’ve just GOT to share with you, and “DRACULA: The Evidence” is the perfect Halloween project to highlight.

DRACULA: The Evidence is an entirely new way to experience Stoker’s masterpiece: through an actual physical research dossier full of ephemera, correspondence, clues and artifacts. It’s the entire original text of Dracula, presented as a gorgeously designed and curated briefcase full of maps, letters, diaries, newspaper clippings, telegrams, and phonograph records. We teamed up with Dracula expert and the author’s great-grand nephew Dacre Stoker to bring you the most immersive way imaginable to experience this masterpiece of Gothic horror.

Like, seriously- it’s no wonder Beehive Books already blew through their first goal by almost double the amount.

Mary Anne Butler: Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.
