We thought you might be interested in looking at this information-rich overview of the nominees for the Horror Writers Association’s Vampire Novel of the Century nominees.
It begins like this:
We at MonsterLibrarian.com are here to help you learn a little about these titles.
Below you’ll find reviews of each of the nominated books. Some of these are now out of print or difficult to find (The Soft Whisper of the Dead was a limited edition of only 2,800 copies), but if you search your existing collection, you may find these books are already on your shelves.
Even if they aren’t, and you can’t snag yourself a copy, this is a great time to showcase your vampire novels and movies. Chelsea Quinn Yarbro has just come out with the twenty-fifth book in her Count Saint-Germain series, Commedia della Morte. Nominee Hotel Transylvania is the first book in that series. Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend has been made into three movies since it was published in 1954.
