In addition contracting or publishing more than 40 articles, book chapters, and reviews on subjects that cluster around Cultural Theory, horror, the un-dead, Bram Stoker, and the Gothic, Browning has contracted or co-/written twelve books about Dracula, vampires, Bram Stoker, or horror, most recently with Speaking of Monsters: A Teratological Anthology, with Caroline J. S. Picart (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), and two forthcoming volumes, The Palgrave Literary Dictionary of Bram Stoker and a book on Dracula for Cornell University Press. 

He has also guest appeared on National Geographicís Taboo USA (2013-) and The Discovery Channelís William Shatnerís Weird or What? (2010-) to discuss vampires.

In Summer 2014, John became closely involved in the Dracula Travel Guide project initiated by Hans and Dacre. Because of his unique expertise in the publication and reception history of Dracula, he was invited to contribute an afterword to the planned Makt Myrkranna book.
