I used to really like vampire stories. I’m not keen on vampires at all now, although last year I watched all of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, re-read Dracula and watched a film adaptation of it. As I’ve mentioned before, Christopher Pike was the master of 90s teen horror and I would borrow his books from the library. A few of them I have bought second-hand since and re-read (Remember Me, The Starlight Crystal, Magic Fire and Sati) but I would not be inclined to do the same for the vampire-themed ones, even though they include the sci-fi and spiritual elements which make Pike an unusual author. The Last Vampire was published in 1994 and there are now 8 sequels, alternatively known as Thirst.
