If you've ever read the original 'Dracula' by Bram Stoker, read 'The Dracula Tapes', by Fred Saberhagen. It tells the original tale, but from Dracula's viewpoint. No servant of evil, merely a proud -- and ruthless -- nobleman, who just happens to be a vampire. And really, was it his fault that Jonathan Harker's wife, Mina, was so hot? I think not.

There's a whole series, that takes the tale into the modern day, but read that one first and see if you like it.

My favorite book that Vampires are involved in, happens to be Salem's Lot. I thoroughly enjoy how they are portrayed in it, probably because it matches a lot of my own views on the Undead.

I own the original screen adaptation of Stephen King's Salems Lot, it's a really good (and creepy) movie. I also watched the remake starring Rob Lowe, and it was pretty good too actually.

I've read a few, but the only really worthwhile one were Bram Stoker's Dracula. Oh, and a couple of the Discworld novels portrays vampires as more than token monsters, and I like them.

There's this comic by Sergio Bleda called Vampire Dance that's good, but short. I've read a lot of praises for American Vampire by Scott Snyder and Stephen King. I'll probably buy volume 1 soon if my cashflow is steady. It's also a comic.

Read 2 clan novels. Probably ok if you're obsessed with oWod, otherwise not great litterature.

The Malkavian clan novel wasn't bad, but it's not "a book". RPG books are no books either Very Happy

I agree, Stoker is good reading. And also I like the diskworld a lot. But IMO, the vampires are some of Pratchet's weaker characters. I prefer the witches, and the nightwatch and wizard stories.

AND OF COURSE NOBODY BEATS DEATH!

I'm partial to the Dark Ages Clan Novel series myself- read the whole thing through probably five or six times over all. The modern series, not so much- I prefer the anthologies that put it all in the proper order- I didn't like how they did the narrative of the Clan Novels originally. Too disjointed and hard to follow in my opinion.

Also, the fore-mentioned 'Salems Lot. The only Stephen King novel I really like.
