The Vampire List, Part 3: From traditional to modern

When people hear the words “vampire story” two authors come to mind — Bram Stoker and Anne Rice. These writers pioneered the world of vampire fiction, with Bram Stoker basically creating it and Anne Rice redefining it into what most readers know today.

But as we’ve proven in previous lists, Stoker and Rice are not the only authors out there leaving a bite mark in fiction. Below you’ll find a few authors in the two remaining categories of our vampire lists. These writers offer everything from traditional, terrifying and gothic tales, to new, creative and really freaky fiction that fans of vampires are sure to love.


These authors take classical themes and traditional concepts and add vampires. Really, what could be cooler than that?

    I read “I am Legend” when I found out it was being re-made into a movie starring Will Smith. I absolutely loved the book…so edge of your seat and I enjoyed how true the movie portrayed the book. Of course the movie was not a perfect and complete adaption, but very much on point and compared to previous versions of the film was the most accurate.
