Join the wonderful Emmie and a host of toothy smileys on the path to poking that Vampiric genre…

I love vampires.

I think I’ve mentioned it before, but it was Christopher Pike‘s Last Vampire series that did it for me first. I was about eight years old (I know, precocious) when I read them, and I loved all of them. I was entranced by the idea of someone old enough to have been around when Krishna walked the earth, and at the time I didn’t even know who Krishna was.

Throughout the 90s, there were tides of vampires. From YA writers like L.J. Smith and the Night World series to Anne Rice‘s Interview With The Vampire, a steady stream of bloodsuckers existed for most of the decade.

And then came the twenty-first century, and with it the craze of Twilight. Fast on the heels of Edward and Bella came the Southern Vampire books, The Vampire Diaries, The Passage, vampires, vampires, more vampires.
