The Evolution of the Vampire in Popular Culture

I can no longer go on denying that the vampire story has been almost completely swallowed up by genres other than horror. Yes, there are still horror and really scary supernatural thrillers out there that feature vampires, but there are also too many vampire romances and mysteries to count.

In the new book, I will detail this demise in greater detail, and look into how the vampire has been hijacked from the pages of the horror novel. But to tide you over until 2011, here is a very interesting article from Paste Magazine entitled, "Bela Lugosi's Dead: Vampire History, From Scary Monster to Sexy Beast."
