This is my favorite vampire novel series! Thank you for making my day (especially on a rainy day in the far North of the U.S. of A)
You are more than welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it. A rainy day in the far north U.S.A. sounds like a perfect fall day.
You are very welcome, Alyssa.
A rainy day in the far north of the U.S. of A. sounds perfect to me.
Another novel to look into, specifically a vampyre one, would be Varney the Vampire or the Feast of Blood. This is generally recognized as the first Vampire novel, and it is huge (originally done as short stories or Penny Dreadfuls).
Thank you, Andy,
I will look into it.
Recently I just discovered a vampire film (and its source novel that I will be reading soon) within the “cult classic” radar. It’s called “The Hunger” starring Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie as two vampires living in New York, but when Bowie’s vampire begins to age rapidly, Deneuve’s character begins her search for a new partner; leading her to a researcher played by Susan Sarandon. Maybe this could be an idea for a future episode?
Thank you for reminding me of that lovely film. I enjoyed it as well. I will put it on the list. You never know.
I was just floored by the simplicity of the narrative, but it’s so gripping. Given I’m a dedicated David Bowie fan, I was sold. Even looking into the tidbits behind the making was pretty fascinating.
Maybe this year, “Pet Sematary” could be covered since its the 35th anniversary of its publication. Plus its origins are truly bizarre as events from Stephen King’s life influenced such disturbing material
That is a very interesting thought…. I will add it to the list immediately…. Thank you very much, Alyssa….
