Virgin Vampires: Or, Once Upon a Time in Transylvania

Front Cover
McFarland, Oct 8, 2012 - Fiction - 168 pages
1 Review

This blend of history and dark fantasy feasts upon vampire lore, reinventing the manner in which real-life monsters were transformed into pop culture icons by two of Ireland's great writers. Dubliners Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker travel to Transylvania where they race to save the women they love from the Countess Elizabeth Bathory. After the blood bath, Le Fanu and Stoker pose as doctors John Seward and Abraham Van Helsing to confront Vlad the Impaler and Count Dracula himself. Together for the first time, this immortal cast offers a highly erotic exploration of the vampire's eternal allure.
