Re: vampires

Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles.

!, Interview with a vampire.

2. The Vampire Lestat

3. Queen of the Damned

4. Tale of the body thief. ( not as good but fun)

The rest of them are not the same quality though I did like Blood and gold and Pandora a lot.

The vampire Lestat is probably one of the best vamp books out there. It really gives you a feel what its like to be a vampire. It's also one of my favorite books of all time. I highly recommend them.
By the end of the series you will be thinking Twilight what?? My vamps burst into the flames when in sunlight. They do not sparkle. Also the idea of blood tears is really cool.

I have vague recollections of a novelisation being written, but don't quote me on that.

My own favourite Vampire books are the 'Vampire Wars' trilogy by Steve Saville. They are fantasy novels but revolve around the machinations of a dynasty of Vampires trying to conquer the world and put the human cattle in their place.

found fevre dream and added it to my wish list. I was also disappointed that they had only about half of the buffy and angel series. now i have never read george r r martin how is he?
Awesome.. I hope it won't disappoint!

I'm actually not a big fan of Martin's more well known fantasy works. i'm not a Fantasy Genre reader in the first place, so it has more to do with that than it does with him.

His Song of Fire and Ice series is very popular and one them, A Game of Thrones is currently being made into a mini-series, I believe..

He also worked as a story editor on the 80's Twilight Zone series as well as Beauty and the Beast.

I've met the man and he's really nice. I attended a short story writing seminar he was giving back in the mid 80's and bought Fevre Dream for him to sign.

Re: vampires

I'd mention the book in my signature, but that would be self serving.

Re: vampires

I'd like to offer a third recommendation for Kim Newman's vampire series. Also Jeanne Kalogridis' Covenant of the Vampire Series is also very good.

If you are going to read Kim Newmans vampire books don't forget to keep an eye out for books written by 'Jack Yeovil', it's one of Newmans pen names and he wrote a bunch of Vampire stories under that name - most of them are collected in an omnibus called 'Genevieve Undead'

Ah, but the Genevieve in those books is not quite the Genevieve of the Anno Dracula series. Although, I haven't actually read them. Are they any good?

Also, it looks like Newman's Johnny Alucard might finally be coming out this year.

Re: vampires

For a truly hilarious take on vampires, watch Super Friends. They had two vamp episodes, both of which - I swear I am not making this up - had vampirism spread by laser beams.

Have you ever seen the original tv-movie version of The Night Stalker? Trust me, it's much better.

At one time, it was the highest-rated tv-movie in history.
