Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If anyone likes a good read try Anna Rice's vampire chronicles, absolutely brilliant
    Anyone know any good vampire based reads? :D
  2. Errrrr
    Bram Stokers Dracula?

    Salems lot by stephen king - still a classic
  4. The Sookie Stackhouse chronicles.
    They are the books true blood is based on.
  5. Stephenie Meyer The Twilight series, Twilight (2005), Meyer expanded the story into a series with three more books: New Moon (2006), Eclipse (2007), and Breaking Dawn (2008).
  6. There is also a series by Laurell K Hamilton. Its not just about vampires though, also werebeings included. Main character is called Anita Blake, first book is called 'circus of the damned'
  7. The Vampire Diaries by L.J Smith is meant to be good (Similar to Twilight but written before)
  8. Richard Matheson's I Am Legend.

    Angus McInnes eerie reading on the BBC a couple of years back, is far better than the attempts at film adaptation.
  9. Vampire Chronicle are a pretty good read, but Ms Rice does tend to go a bit extreme with the poetic side of vampirism

    'The Travelling Vampire Show' and 'Bite' by Richard Laymon are quite good too
  10. Ever tried Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Count Saint-Germain series? Its fairly close to Anne Rice, but less lyrical and a little more focused on the history going on around.
  11. Managed to collect all of Anne Rice' Vampire chronicles, hardback 1st editions and signed. Cost a small fortune but well worth it. There has been mention by Anne herself that she will write another Lestat based novel soon, so that is something to look forward to.

    Is a 'werebeing' a Werewolf that has been processed by the office of Harriet Harperson? Are there Otherwise-Enabled-Beings?

    Read Train Spotting by Irvine Walsh.

    Vampires? They move among us.
  13. The Historian by Eva Kostova - such a good read that I went through it twice in just under a year. Really well written and one definitely targeted at an adult (in terms of intellect/"grown up" rather than sex) readership! :twisted:
  14. You are joking right? Wrote from the angle of a 13 yr old bird, and usually enjoyed by them
