Abraham “Bram” Stoker (8 November 1847 – 20 April 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for discovering the phenomenon of proxy jetlag (though, being as it was before the invention of powered flight, Stoker did not recognise if for what it was and instead mistook it for “vampirism”). Proxy jetlag (as now known) formed a central thematic plank of his 1887 gothic horror novel, Dracula.
