Greatest Vampire Stories of All Time

These printed works tell amazing and timeless vampire stories, many coming with pictures.

1. Dracula : This classic book was the basis for all of the greatest vampire stories of all time. Printed in 1897, it was written by the now legendary Bram Stoker. Told in a series of letters, it follows the exploits of the then unknown Count Dracula. Much like the characters in “Twilight,” this vampire also forms a connection with a young woman named Mina that carries repercussions for all involved. Want to know more?

Charlaine also has other books, bur for those who truly enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse series you can get both the Last Bite and Wake The Dead podcasts.

3. Anne Rice : This author is perhaps best known for the book “Interview with the Vampire,” which was later turned into a film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise as Lestat.
