Ten of the best vampire novels

At SciFiNow Jonathan Hatfull tagged the ten best vampire novels ever, including:

Forget the Will Smith film, Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel is one of the greatest vampire stories ever written. Robert Neville is the sole survivor of a vampire plague, living in a boarded up house which he only leaves during the daytime to hunt. At night, the monsters return the favour, needling at him through the boarded up windows. The powerful sense of isolation is second only to the powerful moral twist of the book’s finale, when Robert is forced to recognise his position in the new world. This is a must-read.

I Am Legend is among Jennifer Griffith Delgado's top eleven mind-blowing surprise endings in science fiction and fantasy literature and Kevin Jackson's top ten vampire novels.
