on vampires and more

I've been reading books on vampires lately. I'm still within the pages of "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova, a fictional story working on the premise that Vlad Dracul is still alive in this century. Next I'll be re-reading Bram Stoker's "Dracula" and then finish up with an anthology entitled, "Bite" with writers like Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, etc.

Why the interest in blood? Nothing really. Just feel like I wanted to read something sinister to blow off steam from all the pressure at work.

Ah yes, Vlad the Impaler. He was so blood-thirsty, he would dine in front of his prisoners who were impaled alive on wooden stakes and just watch them die slowly. Some historians even says that he dips his bread into a cup of his victims' blood. Gruesome, just like Hannibal Lecter! :D
