Best vampire stories

Recommended Posts

I am reading Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu. It's reminds me an awful lot of those Hammer House of Horror films from the early 70s. Vampire stories go back a long way. Which are the best?

It's been years since I've read any vampire stories, even though I was a huge fan of them in my teens and 20s.  From memory, these three stood out:

 

Dracula - Bram Stoker (of course!)

Nosferatu the Vampyre - Paul Monette

The Fantastic World of Kamtellar - R. Chetwynd-Hayes

 

I can't remember much at all about the latter two, but I do still have them on my shelf, so I need to line them up for a re-read!

I enjoyed reading 'I am Legend' by Richard Matheson. It's a psychological take on the vampire genre.

I just read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.
