An interesting history of the “urban fantasy” (AKA vampire porn) novel.
As an aside, I’m kind of embarrassed to say out loud that, shit, man, Rusch is a really terrible writer. I’m sure she writes good *story* (which would be why she sells so many), but she really doesn’t have a lot of technical skill. Lots of interesting stuff to chew on here, just not articulated as well as it could have been.
Sorry. I had to say that out loud.
Now go forth and create the next reimagined gothic, people! I’m bored with vampire porn.
