Fangs a Lot

fangsalotlogoThis list is comprised of novels or short story collections that feature the bloodsuckers of the night. The tone and subject matter of these novels can range anywhere from the horror of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot or Brian Lumley’s Necroscope series, to the more character-driven works of Charlaine Harris, Laurell K. Hamilton or Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. One increasing popular subset to Vampire Fiction in recent years has been the emergence of vampires as romantic “heroes.” This list includes a number of Vampire Romance novels, identified within the comments below.

Many of the following novels are “stand alones”, while some are entries in popular on-going series. In the cases of stand-alone novels, individual titles are in chronological order following the author’s name. In the case of series, the novels are arranged in “series order” following the name of the series. We’ve included a few titles in this list which are not currently owned by the Lincoln City Libraries. These appear here for the sake of providing complete series listings, or to identify classic vampire fiction titles which are long out-of-print. All books owned by Lincoln City Libraries are hotlinked to their entries in our library catalog, so that you may check on their current availability. If you see a title on this list that is not hotlinked to our collection, please consider ordering it through our Interlibrary Loan department.
