    Jonathan Harker observes the Count, dressed in Jonathan’s traveling suit, delivering the last of the postdated letters that portend his doom.

Once back in his bedroom, Jonathan overhears the count whispering to the spectral women that they may feast on him tomorrow.

    Dracula Episode: June 25th

    The first of Jonathan Harker’s postdated letters has been sent, and Jonathan grows desperate. Determined to discover the secrets about the Count, Jonathan perilously climbs down the exterior of the castle wall into the Count’s bedroom. Once inside the seemingly disused room, Jonathan takes a deep passage that opens into a ruined chapel. Jonathan discovers that the Szgany had been filling large wooden boxes with earth from the chapel, and that the Count is lying as if dead inside one of these boxes. The sight so startles Jonathan, that he returns at once to his bedroom.

    Dracula Episode: June 24th

    While the Szgany work somewhere in the depths of the castle, Jonathan Harker observes the Count climbing out the window wearing Harker’s traveling suit. Jonathan realizes that by appearing in the town in Harker’s clothes, the townspeople will think he is acting out nefarious deeds of his own will. Jonathan’s plans to await the Count’s return are halted by the appearance of the three spectral women who frighten him from the room.  Once safely in his own bedroom, Jonathan hears a stifled wail from the Count’s room, and a woman appears in the courtyard and screams at Jonathan to return her stolen child. The Count’s voice calls the wolves who devour her before Jonathan’s very eyes.

Rev. Madison ,

A great way to experience a horror classic.

This chronological reading of the various first person perspectives that make up the tale of Dracula is a great way to experience the story. If it’s your first time hearing the story or the hundred and first, You’ll enjoy Cryptic Canticles.

Hannibal King ,

Well, I’d love to give this a great review...

But I can’t because it’s just a handful of episodes. If it was the whole series, I’d love to give it a five star review, but as it stands it isn’t worth anything.

Novel idea

It's wonderful to hear the text of Bram Stoker read in character. It's also very interesting to follow along on the same days as in the book, almost as if we're experiencing this alongside the characters.
