"What, Wolf asks, makes vampires so attractive today? He notes in his cogent Introduction that vampire tales draw from the gruesome in mainstream horror, the pulsing eroticism of bodice rippers, the supernatural in sword-and-sorcery. But blood is the primary metaphor, Wolf says, drawing on folk knowledge and traditions from Cain and Able to Christ and transubstantiation, while the modern blood exchange brings on a kind of sexual dream-bliss beyond facts of intercourse."Leonard Wolf is the author of 'Blood Thirst: 100 Years of Vampire Fiction', published 1997 under ISBN 9780788194726 and ISBN 0788194720.
