the rise of popular culture embracing the myth of vampires has occurred over the last 5 years, it started as so many things do on the shelves of the bookstores. as more and more author's found readership in this genre, Anne rice, laurell k Hamilton, Charlene Harris, Sherillyn Kenyon and Stephine Myer just to name a few...
after we have fed our children on harry potter and magic, it seems a natural progression for them to lean towards the secret hidden world of the supernatural, with sexy characters from books hitting the big and small screen .
after all there are only so many movies that can be remade and so often the movie industry gets its ideas from the bookshelves themselves,
having been a fan of this genre for years! its nice to see it have its time in the spot light again. so enjoy it while it lasts :)
