Kinks, what did you think of Anno Dracula?

I read it years ago -- twice, I believe. I thought it was incredibly awesome, especially the way it brought in both fictional and historical figures from the Victorian era.

There was a book called Lasiter, i think. Probably got the title wrong. It was a great read.

My favorite "modern" vampire series is the David Wellington one. 23 Hours, 13 Bullets, 99 Coffins, Vampire Zero

The Light at the End

I can't recommend this one enough...

I just read The Light at the End a few months back. You're right. It was awesome!

Some that I very much enjoyed:
DRACULAS (A Novel of Terror)
'Salem's Lot
Darker Things (The Lockman Chronicles #1)
Touched (The Marnie Baranuik Files)
33 A.D.

I will say I liked the movie version of Interview With the Vampire much more than the book. The book sadly convinced me that it is possible to write boring vampires. :)

The script for Blade?

+1 to you, sir! (with maybe a shoutout to Blade 2 as well :)

It is almost impossible to watch that movie without a big smile on my face.

Good to hear that 33 A.D. is a good one. I have it, but haven't read it yet.
I just recently read Draculas and thought it was a BLAST!

I am reading The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, and I think I might add it to the list.

Okay. I have been racking my brains for two days now trying to think of the vampire novel I read years ago. It's the story of a "modern dracula" that takes place in the 1800s. The main character is a doctor, going to medical school. He's a vampire but not one with any special powers. I think it begins with an "L". The book is at least 15 years old. I keep thinking "Alienist" but I'm sure I'm confusing my titles.

Help.

Definitely not The Alienist, though that was a good book. I'm thinking of Lestat, but I don't remember a medical school.
This is a reader list, but maybe if you scanned down it the book would pop out at you?

Not LeStat. I checked the list but it's 182 pages!

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 6, 2012 5:12:42 AM PDT
HA! Is it really? I only a couple of pages or so, but nothing was jumping out at me. I'm going to keep an eye out and if anything jogs my memory, I'll let you know.
I hate not being able to remember things.

I finally found the title I couldn't think of. This was a great read, but a bit different than recent vampire books. The Secret Life of Laszlo, Count Dracula

It took me five days of wracking my little brains and ignoring my children, but I finally came up with the title (after someone figured it out and told me).

The Secret Life of Laszlo, Count Dracula
