Dracula - Bram Stoker A classic. So many people are going to write about this there's probably not a lot new that I can add, other than to say that this is one of the books that every horror writer and every horror reader should have in their DNA. From the journal entries to the plot to the characterization to the settings, this book nails it on every point. One of the moments that sticks with me every time is the realization that once Dracula has sucked your blood, it's not enough to chase him away... eventually you'll die, and even if it's at the end of a long life, once you pass through that veil, you're his. Chilling, and on a level that so few of horror's modern "masters" can even come close to. This is truly one of those pieces that "started it all."
