Talbot published his first novel, The Delicate Dependency: A Novel of the Vampire Life as an Avon paperback original in 1982; though never reprinted, it is regarded a classic of the genre, frequently appearing on lists of the best vampire novels ever written, and secondhand copies have long been expensive and hard to find.

“We are not born into the world. We are born into something that we make into the world.”
Michael Talbot, Mysticism and the New Physics

“We're still in the Dark Ages. The scared and the superstitious savage still lurks behind the mask of civilization and he will remain there for untold generations to come.”
Michael Talbot, The Delicate Dependency: A Novel of the Vampire Life

phenomena of the universe, all apportionments are of necessity artificial and all of
nature is ultimately a seamless web.”
Michael Talbot
