They are both undead blood drinkers but I think the Rempires monster-in-a-Human-skin thing makes them a bit more interesting. Blampires are far too...zombie-ish.
Well the Black Court are supposed to be the traditional kind, sun light, stakes, etc. but a bit more disgusting. Red Court seem to be more the seductive, beautiful types that are about more now, but with a monster underneath. While White Court are Incubus and succubus.

JD if you've read Summer Knight you should be introduced to all 3 of those by now. All three kinds were at Bianca's party in Grave Peril.

Ah, Ok. It's actually been quite a while between books for me, so I forgot that they did introduce members of the other Courts in Grave Peril.

I've read a couple of L.A. Banks work and a couple of the comics which take place after the conclusion of the Vampire Huntress series. I liked her spin on the vampire hunting genre.

Sadly, I just found out that L.A. Banks is currently fighting cancer. Not to bring everyone down, but a fund has been set up to help her with medical expenses. I don't know how to post a link, but you can probably find it by googling "Leslie Esdaile Fund." (That's her real name.)

Given that her work is being discussed, it seemed appropriate to mention this.

Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake books are really good until...Obsidian Butterfly, I think. Then they turn into crap porn.

Re: vampires

The Vampire Diaries really hits it stride in season two. I started watching with ep 4 of season two and got hooked. Then I went back and watched season one and the eps of two I missed.

Both of my sisters and one brother-in-law have been totally sucked in.

I love Damon. He is so snarky.

Also, the actor that comes on the show as Elijah was spot on.
