Is it possible to accidentally like vampires? Because despite no real interest in the mythology (8th grade Anne Rice phase aside), my most recent obsessions are pretty vampire-centric. True Blood. Twilight. Concrete Blonde's The Bloodletting. I really don't seek the stuff out, the list just goes on and on of its own accord.
Case in point: Pretty Dead, the forthcoming novel by girl goddess supreme (and my personal fave) Francesca Lia Block. A new FLB tale featuring a female vampire protagonist? Clearly the stars want me to be all vampire, all the time. Even though pop culture is stuffed to the gills with the undead, FLB's spin is almost guaranteed to be insanely great. Countdown to her describing blood in a way that makes it sound irresistibly delicious.
