Vampire Fever

Vampires are hot right now. But, ya know what? They always have been. Since 1819 and John Polidori's The Vampyre to Charlaine's Harris' Sookie Stackhouse vampire series now an HBO hit called True Blood.

Remember Dracula? Dark Shadows? The Munsters? Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles?
How about more recent - Buffy the Vampire Slayer? the Twilight series? authors like LA Banks, Laurell Hamilton, Anita Blake, Kim Harrison?

We love the undead. Some of us even think we are vampires. Go to and learn about fang implants (not those plastic thingees) or find out the ten things to do now that you're immortal.

All I can say to you vamps out there is... you've come a long way, baby!
