First Second has declared May Vampire Month in honor of their own
Little Vampire by Joann Sfar and Life Sucks by Jessica Abel et al. Their blog is keeping track of related features, like the one I just did on the Amazon book blog (about Little Vampires and Bunnicula).
So, let’s get serious about vampires for a second. Vampire fiction is one of the most mined-out, debased subgenres in horror. But like any form, it has its dangerous, edgy, and experimental incarnation. Eschewing the ordinary, what’s the strangest, weirdest, craziest vampire fiction, in book or short story form, that you’ve ever read–and why.
(Little Vampires, btw, may not be dangerous, but it is a wonderful book, and I’m putting it in my sidebar of recommendations. Life Sucks I’m reading later today.)
