Actually, I did notice, which is why I added the bit about Stoker's Dracula not being authentic either, ... note that the lack of authenticity does not make it bad, when you compare that to stuff like Polidori's Vampyre, or what Byron produced on the subject or Rymer's Varney the Vampire, Stoker's Dracula shines out as the masterwork it is, the last great Gothic novel.

Just don't bother attributing to it virtues it doesn't have, or need.
