In the northern part of Puglia, close to the border with the Molise region, lies the Gargano Peninsula, a limestone mountain range on the sea. Full of coastal towns, UNESCO forests, and churches carved into rocks, it is a wonderfully lesser-visited contrast to the Amalfi Coast, at least by non-Italians. And it has been haunted since antiquity.

"The genre challenges us, not unlike its arch-rival science, to see a world beyond the world, where fantastical possibilities exist. The genre challenges Puritanism and the scientific rejection of the fantastical. Count Dracula is a villain and a monster, but also a libertine, flouting societal and Christian norms of decorum and sexuality"
This was such a delightful read!!! Thank you.
