Where Will Vampire Fiction Be in the Future?

Well, for one thing, pretty weird. Vampires do two things in fiction: they reflect what humans were years before, and they reflect what humans are doing to the world at present. So perhaps, vampires of the future, say, in around two hundred or more years, will probably reflect on society today; the styles, the politics,…

Sexy But Deadly

Vampire lore time! Well, actually today’s vampire species is more of a vampire-like entity, but hey, it drinks down human blood so we’ll count it.
