Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. was written way before Bram wrote his
1872 and 1897, yes, and nods to Carmilla are littered throughout Dracula.
Yes, and Varney the Vampire comes even earlier than those. Writers have always influenced one another. Varney is a fun if slow read. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varney_the_Vampire
Guttenberg has a file for those who'd like to tackle that old penny dreadful. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14833/14833-h/14833-h.htm
^I have the complete VtV in book form, it's pretty huge.
Particularly in "Dracula's Guest," which is excised chapter from an early draft of Dracula.
My copy of Dracula has it as an added content thing before the main text. It's a cheap paperback but it'll do.
Whoa! That was quite the eventful post-credits scene. I can't believe I missed that before. Talk about cliffhangers . . . .
I'm only 11 episodes in. Trying to make it last.
Well, no spoilers, but, whatever you do, you have to see the post-credits scene in Season 2, Episode 36. Trust me.
I am so ready for season zero argh....

Cbs plans for new vampire series bathory.
She is the Empress Elizabeth Bathory of Hungary, who was something of a real-life vampire. She used to bath in virgin girls blood and drink it, to stay youthful. Plus a whole whack of torture.
I will NOT be watching that!
Countess Elizabeth Bathory, accused of using the blood of virgins to retain her youth among other witchcraft/sorcery/evil doings. She is sometimes depicted as a vampire.
Oops. Yeah, Countess.
With a history like hers you have pretty much no choice but to make her a vampire.
Oh, yeah, Elizabeth Bathory has been a staple of vampire movies and novels for decades now. (Most recently in Fright Night 2 with Jaime Murray as the Countess.)
Granted, some historians question the accuracy of those early accounts of her crimes, claiming they were exaggerated or fabricated by her political enemies, but she's going to be remembered as the Blood Countess anyway.
For what it's worth, I turned her bloody bathtub into a magical artifact in my WAREHOUSE 13 novel . . ..
Carmilla season 0 has started.
Hemlock grove season 3 is now on Netflix.
