Why do you think stories about vampires have fascinated
people for so many centuries?

I believe vampires have fascinated us all since the beginning of Bram Stoker's "Dracula." The unknown of if there are actually any real vampires in our society leave us questioning our own lives. The fantasy of it all takes you to a world where you can thrive, and not die- unless impaled.. It paints a pretty picture: An immortal seducing a woman for "food," and then -in some ways- turning her into one. A vampire, such as Lestat from Queen Of The Damned, makes it look glamorous. There are many books, websites, and items out in the world that have helped bring Dracula to life, almost. There's no right or wrong way to say "There are/aren't any vampires out there in the world, except in books." It's a fantasy world every one dreams of, and wants to be a part of.
