Vampire Nights
Review by Davis Farnsworth, submitted on 26-Jul-1991

Vampire Nights by Timothy Moriarty. Published by Windsor Publishing Corp, copyright 1989. I found a copy at the San Jose Public Library.

This book is of the same genre as King's Salem's Lot, and Martindale's Nightblood. The hero and heroine are embroiled in tracking down an extremely vicious coven of vampires in Massachusetts. These vampires don't change shapes or turn into mists, but they are extremely strong, must avoid sunlight, and die by the old stake-in-the-heart routine. They have been carefully avoiding detection in Blanchard, Massachusetts for about twenty years, and now they have been located.

It was pretty suspenseful, pretty gory, kinda sexy, and generally OK. I thought it was almost as well done as Salem's Lot, but not as compelling. If you like vicious vampires you might like this one. I didn't find it as enthralling as Necroscope or Vamphyri by Brian Lumley, but I liked it better than Somtow's Vampire Junction.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
