Lure of the Vampire by Milly Williamson
Book Description"The Lure of the Vampire: Gender, Fiction and Fandom from Bram Stoker to Buffy" explores the enduring myth of Dracula and vampires and just why it has remained so popular for so long. Over one hundred years after Bram Stoker's influential novel was published, the vampire is as popular as ever in popular culture, in films such as Bram Stoker's "Dracula" (1992), "Interview With the Vampire" (1994), the "Blade trilogy" (1998-2004), "Underworld" (2003), "Van Helsing" (2004) and particularly in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", a television series spin-off from a film, and Angel, its own spin-off. Milly Williamson examines these phenomena and looks at the issues of gender (of vampires and of vampire fans), the modern portrayal of vampires and their 'others', the nature of identity and identification, and the fans themselves.
