Reactions and Reviews

If you have always felt that vampires are badly maligned, then 'Carmilla' is for you. This is a not a 'Dracula hides his coffin in the auxiliary', by rather a reasonable explanation of what a vampire really is. Carmilla is a member of that elite group of humans suffering from a rare blood disease; a group that sets up the 'stables' of very willing blood donors, polices its own ranks, and perpetrates the legends about vampires as protection. Read it, and you will never again wear a cross to bed after watching old time horror flicks. [1]
I feel the same towards her as Jacqueline Lichtenberg. I feel sympathetic towards her. And there any pictures of her available? I know vampire(s) can't be photographed, but I'm sure they can be drawn or painted. I hope you are planning a sequel or a series of stories. I liked the way the story didn't make her out to be all blood-thirsty (and all that gory). [2]
