Bloody Soppy Vampires - I HATE Them!
« on: August 31, 2017, 07:53:33 pm »
Bloody soppy vampires - I HATE them! Give me PROPER scary vampires, like Dracula, any day over pathetic, misunderstood, teen vampires, which have ruined the genre so much.

Anybody else hate the modern trend for making vampires more romantic and less scary?

I am not a fan of most of them but if they are well enough written/acted then it can be okay sometimes. I liked Buffy the vampire Slayer and her vampires even though their were a couple pretty boys among them for instance.

Have you tried Mick Farren's Victor Renquist novels?
A moment later, the world's first all-purpose human being strode eastward, whistling.
'A tasty world,' it reflected cheerfully. 'A very tasty world.'

I haven't read those but I enjoyed The Song of Phaid the Gambler. Are they good?

I thoroughly enjoyed them. They start as fairly straight vampire novels and then get weird in the way Farren does best (Hollow Earth, Nazi flying saucers, etc). But I'm a Farren fan.
