Verbum-Logo-H100px.png

I’ve used Logos Bible study software for used for many years, so when they began creating products aimed at the Catholic market, I was delighted.

Stoker at 165

dracula

There is some debate about what is truly the first horror, Gothic, or vampire novel, but there’s no debate at all about the most important: Dracula, by Bram Stoker.
