The House of the Vampire is a 1907 novella that is a very unusual vampire story. A young writer comes under the powerful influence of a mysterious older master, who seems to have left a trail of ruined proteges in his wake. The story is as much about the nature of artistic creation as it is a chilling vampire tale. The title is a bit misleading. The "vampire" of the title does not feed upon the blood of his victims as Stoker's vampire. The novella is slow to get started but picks up but ends abruptly just as it was getting interesting. For those interested in the history of vampires in literature it might be worth a read but to others I doubt they will make it twenty pages in before growing bored. I believe that it was published in 1910 so the style reflects that time. There is no real overt horror and is very tame and one would find more sensational images in Stoker's novel. I give it a marginal recommendation. Being only 75 pages long it is a reasonably quick read. It just requires adjusting to the leisurely pace. But it is an interesting variation on the vampire theme, which was still relatively new at this period of time and didn't need to rely on the established tropes defined by Stoker. The archaic and flowery style of this book would be considered hopelessly overwritten today. But after awhile I cane to enjoy it, seeing this book as a fascinating look into the formal, stilted world of upper-class 1907. Some have argued that this is "gay" fiction. Well? There is no actual gay sex, but there is a lot of affection, adoration and love for one male towards another.It also took awhile for the storyline to develop, but once it became obvious what was happening, I was drawn right in. I actually read this a second time, whereupon I better appreciated the hints that were dropped early on, and the skill with which Viereck portrayed the mind-raping Reginald.I re-read it because I was so interested in the psychology of the author. G.S. Viereck seemed to be a collector of great men. He befriended Nikola Tesla, went around interviewing other notables including Freud, Einstein and Hitler. In fact Viereck admired Hitler and called him a "genius". And finally he was jailed for spreading Nazi propaganda.Knowing this about the author made me want to re-read this book, to see just how much of 'Reginald Clarke' was autobiographical, at least as "wishful thinking" on Viereck's part.Judging by the ending, I am tempted to say "it is a definite possibility".

Nearly two years after the fall of Dr. Venjamin and Sangre Valley, Valerie Murray and her family have picked up the pieces of their lives and begun over again on the white beaches and blue seas of the Caribbean. Valerie has her first lead role in the community theater; her children are typical teenagers-John, moody and distance; Amelia has her first boyfriend; and Harry . . . is, well, Harry. Life is anything but a paradise though. The family has become somewhat of a freak show among the vampiric world. Vampires from all around the globe visit the island just to get a glimpse of the living vampires and the woman who destroyed the evil doctor and his legacy. There are whispered rumors that Valerie is the legendary Vampire Queen of ancient times, returned to unite vampires and humans under her reign-a title Valerie wants nothing to do with. But when Dr. Venjamin's technology resurfaces and threatens not only Valerie's new life but the life of all vampires, she just might be the only who can protect them.

Over five thousand years ago a malignant creature was set loose upon the Earth. The plague of akhkharu was unleashed-an eternal curse to humanity. But with immortality came a warning in the form of prophecy. To thwart the prediction, the vampires lay numberless and quiet for centuries. Now after sitting idle for a millennium they start to stir as the prophecy begins to unfold. The key to that prophecy is Devin Merchon. Fighting against her destiny, she finds two allies in Alex Stone and Tom Ells. Together they face an ancient enemy thought only to be legend, but a far more dangerous creature has been awakened. He is an unholy incarnation and the very source of the plague itself. His bloodlust is insatiable and if he obtains Devin it will start in motion an ancient ambition to wipe out civilization and enslave the human race.

Leo Wynn is convinced that his sister, Julie, is a vampire. Even though she was born to normal parents and looked pretty much like a normal baby (well, except for the holes in her gums connected by vein-like tubes that went straight to her stomach), Leo knew from the second he saw her that something wasn't right. As Julie grows older, more of her unique genetic make-up becomes obvious. Her irises are non-reflective; she has a powerful bone and muscle structure, and a bigger-than-normal heart. She also hates being out in the sun and has a strange penchant for sucking on her mother or father's neck when she's hungry. Leo thinks they're pretty darn lucky to live in California where people are more tolerant of those that are different-or so he thinks. Things get pretty interesting when Julie is officially diagnosed as being a vampire. Though Leo knew it all along, it's taking everyone else some time to get used to the idea! With the scientific and medical community studying Julie, the family becomes the center of a media storm and the FBI is called in to offer protection. Leo wishes things could just go back to the way they used to be. But with everyone so interested in his sister, that's not going to happen anytime soon...
