Enter perpetual darkness, and the realm of the vampire.

Stay away from creepy Romanian castles, eat plenty of garlic, and whatever you do, do not invite them into your home. As laid out by Bram Stoker’s timeless 1987 classic Dracula, the basics of vampire law (and lore) are pretty easy to grasp. But as stories of these bloodthirsty parasites have metamorphosed over time, the contest of living vs undead has become increasingly complex. Here are some books that offer variations on the vampire theme, following the bloodline from ancient pioneers to 21st century descendants.
