what are these books?
Good vampire books, of course. Have you never heard of google?
isn't actually a book but another- yet another- unfinished poem by Coleridge. There is a lot of debate as to whether one of the characters is a vampire or a lesbian or both, literally or metaphorically.
is a fine atmospheric novel set in 19th century Louisiana by George R R Martin [currently writing an enormous- too enormous, i think] fantasy sequence. Here he's fairly terse though.
again features a possible lesbian vampire: being a Victorian Le Fanu couldn't be precise. Le Fanu wrote other fine horror stories- most notably Uncle silas
and Green Tea
is a novel about vampire connoiseurs breeding suitable prey. Shephard is a very good SF/fantasy short story writer; his novels aren't as good though.
As for me, currently reading A Game with sharpened Knives
by neil Belton, a novel about Erwin scroedinger's time in Ireland. Entertaining and well-written, but i can't see why he made it a novel rather than a biographical study. The end of Faith
by Sam Harris, a book about religion which even i think is a little too hostile, and Dart
by Alice Oswald, a fine narrative poem.
