Steven King and Scott Snyder, novelists and short story writers, team up with ace artist Rafael Albuquerque to save vampire fiction from "anorexic teenage girls" and "boy-toys with big dewey eyes." They succeed. I resisted reading this for over a year, dated from the first time someone recommended it in glowing terms, but finally gave in after hearing from several other friends in the interval.

This volume moves among chapters between 1880 and 1925, Colorado and Los Angeles at the beginning of the film industry. I made the mistake of reading this before bed, and some of the images so disturbed me I found it difficult to sleep.
