Summer of the Vampire

I currently have on my plate, mainly as the result of happenstance (or, Serendipity Baby!) four vampire books for consumption this summer. I have completed the first - The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, which I mentioned here. The others are: Vampire Junction by S.P. Somtow (I've actually started this one, and it is really bizarre. In a good way. The cover blurb from Robert Bloch reads: "The closest thing to a nightmare ever put on paper." It's pretty much living up to that right now.); Children of the Night by Dan Simmons; and Dark Dance by Tannith Lee. I will of course report on each as I finish, and decide if any measures up as a classic in the bloated vampire genre.

It should be a dark summer.
