Are Vampires Out of Style?


So we just went through the whole True Blood and Twilight things, which at their hearts included prominent vampire characters. But they were also kind of a grab bag of paranormal characters, and lately, shifters have seemed to be ascendent.

So are Vampire tales going out of style? As I’ve commented before, we’ve seen a gradual transition from vampires as evildoers in the dark of night to allegories for the LGBT experience or misunderstood lovers.

I suspect that, for vamps to make another comeback, someone will have to find a new way in – another way to tell this age-old tale.

So how would you resuscitate (and mind the teeth) a vampire?
