Vampires in literature

Posted By on Mon, Jul 28, 2008 at 3:57 PM

" I want to meet a vampire," wrote a friend of mine in an email I received from her today.  Apparently this longing to meet a blood sucking fiend is all due to her having read a book by author, Stephenie Meyer in a series of vampire novels referred to as The Twilight Saga. My friend, who remembered my obsession with author, Anne Rice (The Vampire Chronicles), asked for my recommendations on vampire reading material. Sadly, I couldn't think of many vampire novels, but here is the list I've made so far.

* Dracula, by: Bram Stoker

* The Vampire Chronicles, by Anne Rice. Featuring:

Interview With The Vampire

The Vampire Lestat

The Queen of The Damned

The Tale of The Body Thief

Memnoch The Devil

The Vampire Armand

Merrick

Blood and Gold

Blackwood Farm

Blood Canticle

* Also, Anne Rice's New Tales of The Vampires, which includes:

Pandora

Vittorio

* Lost Souls, by: Poppy Z. Brite

Anybody know of any other good vampire books? If so, feel free to share.
