Yes...

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

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

>> 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. <<

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.

>> 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...... <<

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.
