Bram Stoker | Nov. 8, 2012

The Irish author is best known for his novel "Dracula," which introduced one of Western culture's most famous villains. Less well known is that Stoker was an invalid in his young childhood -- unable to walk or stand until he was 7 -- but eventually overcame his disability and was even a star soccer player for his college team in Ireland.
