Whether you remember what an epistolary novel is or not, you’ll know it when you see it — and few novels of the genre have had a greater impact than Bram Stoker’s 1897 Dracula.

Web developer Matt Kirkland has taken the book, which is made up of dated letters, diaries, telegrams, newspaper clippings and delivering into your email inbox.

And the internet is paying attention.

In fact, the whole story happens between May 3 and November 10. The folks at Dracula Daily have been posting daily email newsletters each day since May 3 in the same timeline that it happens to them. They’ll continue to do so until the books wraps up in November. (You’ve still got plenty of time to catch up and join the fun.)
