Preface by publisher Brian J. Showers and introduction by John Edgar Browning and Showers.

''at the time of his death in 1912, Bram Stoker was preparing for publication three volumes of stories. The first, Draculaís Guest, saw print in 1914; the second and third never manifested. Old Hoggen and Other Adventures is a tantalising possibility of one of these unrealised selections, and the stories in this volume span the authorís entire career. In reading them, one thing becomes clear: adventure and mystery rival even the gothic in Stokerís literary heart. And yet, one will find among these pages many of the same themes found in Dracula: reverence for the dead, the malice of wicked men, black humour, hidden fortunes, daring bravery, exotic locales, a deep love of the sea, and the creeping intrusion of the supernatural''.
