Oh. Oh my.

See, despite being born in the Transylvania County considerably *closer* to you than Romania, vamps have always fascinated me....

The idea of empathy being the *actual* "plague" and the Man trying to keep us down by concocting the legend of killers on the loose....

That hits home like a stake through the heart.

You know...

J.A. Pitts indicts the rich and powerful by calling them dragons. What if you turned that on its head with the vampires? Hmmmmmmmmm......

Yes...

I'm intrigued too, although my taste tends to run aside from the current fashions, as you can see.

Well, I already wrote a sequel; scroll through the comments here to find the thumbnail for "A Strange and Gentle Contagion." Feel free to prompt me for more if you wish.

I did rich despots = dragons in A Conflagration of Dragons. These vampires tend not to be rich and politically positioned, although they do hold substantial power and are excellent at making alliances. There's a constant pull between their ability to find people who will keep them safe, and the fomentation of unrest by hunters who want to destroy them all.
