Many vampires, zero sparkles

Along with zombies, vampires are the bread and butter fattening up the horror industry, so making a vampire list is both very easy and very difficult. I don’t try to be all obscure when I curate these lists, but i also don’t want to make a list that is so basic that it’s completely valueless because duh, Dracula. To that end, the titles I have selected emphasize diversity and strong atmosphere, and while there are a few obvious choices, I think there are some excellent books here about those charismatic bloodsuckers that will be new to many and are well worth inviting into your homes.

And yeah, i included Bunnicula. My list, my rules.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
