Delays hit Dracula author's city statue

A statue of Dracula creator Bram Stoker may not be erected in time for his centenary next year. Dublin City Council has yet to find a suitable location for the statue -- despite being urged to by Dracula fans. Stoker historians and his descendants want to mark his death in 1912 by raising a permanent memorial, but they say the council cannot find room in the city.  

Dublin City Council says it is "supportive" of the idea. But a spokesperson added: "Many issues, however, need to be explored and agreed. These include an art work design, commissioning, funding and location."

Stoker's family is now searching for a private site, which could cost around $82,000 USD.
