Over the past century the figure of the vampire has undergone many transformations--from Bram Stoker's original Dracula to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. Blood Read examines a wide range of vampire narratives from the perspective of both writers and scholars and shows how these transformations reflect ongoing changes in postmodern culture.
Chapters on gay content include: 'The Gilda Stories: Revealing the Monsters at the Margins' and 'Coming Out of the Coffin: Gay Males and Queer Goths in Contemporary Vampire Fiction'.
