9780810835047: Vampire Readings

It was only a little more than 100 years ago, when Bram Stoker wrote the now famous Dracula, that vampire myths began to achieve their current popularity. Hundreds of books now portray vampires in a variety of non-traditional roles, including aliens from outer space, private detectives, and time travelers.

Vampire Readings is an annotated bibliography of 779 entries divided into five sections: Novels; Anthologies and Novellas; Young Adult; Additional Readings; Unread Undead. The largest section is Novels and here, besides a summary of the plot (without spoilers), the author indicates where each novel may fit into other genres such as science fiction/fantasy, mystery, romance, etc. Works by such writers as Anne Rice, Tanya Huff, Christopher Pike, Tanith Lee, Barbara Hambly, Kim Newman, and, of course, Bram Stoker are discussed in Vampire Readings . Separate author and title indexes are included.

About the Author:

Patricia Altner (M.S.L.S., University of Kentucky) is a freelance writer and researcher.

Review:

Avid students of the supernatural, and of vampires in particular, will be pleased with this bibliography of vampire readings...The annotations are well-written and provide entertaining reading in and of themselves...Vampire fans...will likely find this a useful tool for pursuing their reading interests. (VOYA)

This book sets out to index and cross reference vampire fiction for approximately the last ten years. And it succeeds admirably...to make the plot summaries even more useful, Altner has included key words, such as History, Mystery, Romance, Religion, and Humor...another nice touch is a summation of distinctive plot elements for an author's series. (Science Fiction Romance)

...amusing illustrations...this compilation should not be missed... (Library Review)

...plot descriptions and other annotations seem to be usefully informative. (Interzone)

Altner's book is...worth seeking outtttt (The Mad Bibliographer)

...a highly readable introduction and guide to a genre of literature that may not be well known to many readers, and quite useful for those who may wish to expand their familiarity with the genre into areas of which they might not be aware. This would be an excellent reader advisory resource for any library with a sizable fiction-reading population, and is also suitable for academic libraries with a strong literature collection. (American Reference Books Annual)
