Over at the Guardian I’ve done a piece on the Horror Writers Association’s bid to name the best vampire novel of the last 100 years – this being the centenary of the death of Dracula author Bram Stoker.
I read Dracula and it fascinated more than scared me. Same with Drac on the big or small screen. This TV adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot, though… I don’t think I’ll ever forget Danny Glick scratching at the window to be let in.
The full list of six books on the HWA’s list is here, along with some good discussion about what the HWA left off their shortlist. The winner will be announced at the World Horror Convention next month.
