Happy B-day Bram Stoker!

I wonder if there's any info as to whether or not Stoker was fond of the novel "Dracula" or not. It's my understanding that Tchaikowsky really didn't like his "Nutcracker" all that much, despite the public's adoration of it to this day. And Chopin's "Minute Waltz" was inspired by watching his little dog chase it's tail, did it as a novelty and didn't consider it to be of any importance.

 

 

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Bram.

Google employs a team of artists who put together the doodles:
