Show your love for VO by buying us a pint! (of O-neg)
Welcome to Vampyres Only, the original vampire website!
Renfield says, "Established in 1994, VO was the first vampire website, and has been undead and kicking for over twenty years! There's a wealth of information here--thousands of pages!--dedicated to these bloodsucking creatures of the night. I hope you enjoy the original undead web!"
Over the centuries, the vampire has undergone radical changes. From the Count in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel to the alcoholic New Yorker Sam in the 1997 film Habit, the figure of the vampire has evolved with society.
If Dracula wrote the book on the modern vampire fiction, Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer's four Twilight books (and their five film adaptations) have given it an enormously unfaithful, enormously successful rewrite.

Comic book artist Gene Colan, who during his nearly seven-decade career illustrated the adventures of such characters as Dracula, Batman, Daredevil and the wise-cracking Howard the Duck, has died in New York. He was 84. Colan died June 24 at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx of complications from liver disease and cancer, said longtime friend and biographer Clifford Meth.In developing a style both subtle and emotional, Colan imbued his characters with a vitality that seemed to leap off the pages.
The basic premise of this book is "Dracula meets corporate America." But the thing about doing a comic book focused on corporate America is that there’s not always a lot of inherent excitement to be found with a bunch of guys in suits. Granted, The Company of Monsters isn’t just set in board rooms, but when I closed the book, I couldn’t help thinking: "Gee, not much actually happened."
The Vampire TapestryReview by Alex, submitted on 19-Jun-1991 I just read The Vampire Tapestry by Suzy McKee Charnas. It was published by Tor books for the the first time in October of 1986. The Copyright is for 1980. I have been told by a book store owner that this book "started vampire thing". I hadn't really heard much about it.
