To mark the 40th anniversary of the Dracula Society in 2013, the Society published a collection of vampire fiction.

Radu R. Florescu, who was a Dracula Society Honorary Life Member, the co-author of In Search of Dracula, also co-wrote a book about his own family history, which was published in 2013.

Professor Florescu died in May 2014, sadly only nine months after the book was published.
Melindah Hayes' vampire resource page is an excellent source of information on those supposed first editions, and has pictures and details of a great number of editions of Dracula.
An edition of Dracula was published in 2006 with illustrations by well-known comics illustrator Jae Lee.
From the press release:
"Jae Lee presents the original Dracula in a unique Gothic style that will appeal to both fans of the classic and a new generation of readers. A modern master of comic book illustration, he presents Stoker's complete work accompanied by forty original drawings. His subtle, evocative drawings enliven the text throughout, revealing both the terror and lure of this horror masterpiece.
Jae became the youngest professional comic book artist ever to work for a major comic book company and quickly gained recognition for his dark, Gothic work. Widely regarded as one of the most stylistically unique artists in comics today, Jae Lee has received the Eisner Award, the most prestigious award in comics, and has exhibited at the Society of Illustrators Museum in New York. He was the producer of the Hellshock series and worked with Marvel Comics on The Inhumans, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, and The Uncanny X-Men."
