My first glimpse into the world of vampires was when one of my college classmates tossed me a copy of Feast of all Saints by Anne Rice. Not a vamp novel itself, my love of Feast led me to Anne’s Vampire Chronicles and I fell in love. At first, the idea of vampires did not appeal. How could I enjoy reading books about dead people who drank blood? The concept is a strange one on your first run, but as Anne’s words filled me with delight, so did the idea that immortality could transform even the dullest life into magic.
Years later, as I look back at all the vampire fiction I’ve read, there are moments that stick out like snapshots in my mind.
