Bram Stoker's Dracula, edited by Jan Needle, illus. by Gary Blythe, appears in an abridged edition with haunting pencil illustrations in gray and red that seem to mysteriously dissolve into the darkness. Glossy pages bordered in red, make the book look as if it has been dipped in blood, offering delectably spinetingling trappings to the classic tale. (Sept.) .
