Re: vampires

I don't know if anybody's mentioned this since I didn't read through the entire thread.

Brian Lumeley's Necroscope has a very unique twist on Vampires, and quite possibly the most unique of them all.

Re: vampires

SFX has started a new Greatest Vampire Ever poll: http://www.sfx.co.uk/2011/12/06/vote...res-ever-poll/ You can vote for up to 5 characters.

Here are the results of the last one: http://www.sfx.co.uk/2010/06/05/top-50-vampires/ They decided to start a new one due to the surge of new fictional vampires - the last one didn't even include The Vampire Diaries characters (plus this time ere's more characters from True Blood in this one, the US version of Being Human, the remake of Fright Night, the weird Sanctuary version of Nikola Tesla, and maybe a few more).

Re: vampires

Finally got a hold of a copy of "Let the Right One In", I enjoyed it but I still prefer the American version really. There's something much more adorable about the couple in it that makes the film better to me. Feels weird to call a Vampire movie cute or romantic but it is.

Re: vampires

This is a bit of a tangent, but I am currently reading the second volume of an urban-fantasy series by Richard Kadrey that may be of interest to fans of vampirism.

The books in the series are entitled Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, and Aloha from Hell. In a world where magic and monsters are real, but hiding out in the margins of everyday life, the main character is a magician who is betrayed by his friends and dragged down to Hell while still alive. Once he's Downtown, though, he discovers that he possesses unexpected powers. After eleven years, he claws his way back to the world of the living, and goes looking for revenge.

The style is very hard-boiled--think Supernatural meets Mickey Spillane. The main character's name, Stark, is a pretty clear homage to Richard Stark, author of a series of hard-boiled crime novels featuring a professional thief named Parker. (Kadrey includes a character named Parker, as well) I don't read much urban fantasy, but I'm enjoying these books a lot, so I think I will read more in the future.

Vampires exist in the world of these books, and the second novel begins with the hero hunting down bloodsuckers, Blade-style. There's also a monster called a Jade, which drinks people, instead of just their blood: like a spider, it injects its victims with digestive enzymes, liquefying their insides, and then enjoys a human milkshake. Yummy.

Re: vampires

^Sounds pretty good, might give it a try.

I just finished book 10 of the "Noble Dead Saga" this morning and enjoyed it. I'm not sure if I mentioned it here before but it's a rather good series that involves a lot of magical/mythical races, with Vampires being the focus of most of it.

It would spoil a lot of the story to say more, it sort of resembles Lord of the Rings, with the Human or otherwise humanoid characters pitted against two immortal, immaterial sides of a thousand year old war fighting over 5 powerful artifacts that both made the world and if opened, unmake it element by element.

Re: vampires

I saw a book at the store the other day called, "The Slayer Chronicles," and I thought it had to have been a knock-off of "Buffy." When I opened it up and read the book jacket, I saw that the main character's name was Joss!
