Shadow of a shade: A survey of vampirism in literature

A survey of the history of vampire fiction, from about 1800 to the 1970s. The essential elements of this out-of-print book were later incorporated into THE VAMPIRE IN LITERATURE: A CRITICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY and DIFFERENT BLOOD: THE VAMPIRE AS ALIEN.

Science fiction conventions attract some strange people, but Sherri Hudson never expected to spend a con weekend helping a sexy man in a cape steal photos of a winged alien. When the photographer is murdered, and Nigel Jamison reveals to Sherri that the “alien” is actually his sister, the situation gets intriguingly complicated. Unwillingly swept up in Nigel’s quest to rescue his sister, Sherri can’t help being fascinated with him. By the time she finds out he’s a vampire, the fascination has become mutual…

And too strong to resist.

Denise A. Agnew, Eppie Award-winning author of LOVE FROM THE ASHES, says: “SEALED IN BLOOD is for true vampire fans and romance fans alike. Unique and complex characterizations, action, and mystery will keep readers guessing and intrigued until the very end.”

Linda Suzane, reviewing for Suite 101, says: “The snappy repartee between the hero and heroine is delightful….I thoroughly enjoyed SEALED IN BLOOD and highly recommend it.”
