Stoker, Bram: The Lair of the White Worm (1911). v2. 8 August 2013

This is the original text of Bram Stoker's horror novel, as first published in 1911, and with the six original 1911 colour illustrations by Pamela Colman Smith.

Wikipedia says that in 1925, it was republished in a highly abridged and rewritten form. Over a hundred pages were removed, the rewritten book having only twenty-eight chapters instead of the original forty. The final eleven chapters were cut down to only five, leading some critics to complain that the ending was abrupt and inconsistent.

Ken Russell made a 1988 film with the same title, loosely based on the book. Oh, the horror! the horror! ...

This is the 40-chapter version, now proof-read.
