Vampire Literature

Vampire books have changed dramatically. A few years ago, no one had heard the term Urban Fantasy. Before 2000, maybe 10 or 15 books about vampires were published a year, that has grown dramatically to hundreds. Early vampires were always the villains, now they are often the heroes.
