Book Bit
Dracula by Bram Stoker
His face was a strong—a very strong—aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostril; with lofty domed forehead, and hair growing scantily round the temples but profusely elsewhere. His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion. The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth; these protruded over the lips, whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years. For the rest, his ears were pale, and at the tops extremely pointed; the chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm though thin. The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor.

“True Blood” novelist Charlaine Harris made a cameo appearance in the series finale on Aug. 26. She’s manning the production console in the “commercial” for New Blood.
