Strange Blood | Cover Reveal

vampire book

I'm thrilled to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming book Strange Blood: 70 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies.

The cover design is by Gilles Vranckx.

What do you think of the cover of Strange Blood? Let me know in the comments or on social media.

This is an overview of the most offbeat and underrated vampire movies spanning nine decades and 23 countries.

Strange Blood encompasses well-known hits as well as obscurities that differ from your standard fang fare by turning genre conventions on their head. Here, vampires come in the form of cars, pets, aliens, mechanical objects, gorillas, or floating heads. And when they do look like a demonic monster or an aristocratic Count or Countess, they break the mold in terms of imagery, style, or setting.

Leading horror writers, filmmakers, actors, academics, and programmers present their favorite vampire films through in-depth essays, providing background information, analysis, and trivia regarding the various films. Some of these stories are hilarious, some are terrifying, some are touching, and some are just plain weird. Not all of these movies line up with the critical consensus, yet they have one thing in common: they are unlike anything you've ever seen in the world of vampires.

Just when you thought that the children of the night had become a tired trope, it turns out they have quite a diverse inventory after all.

Book giveaway


To celebrate the cover reveal of Strange Blood, I'm giving away one digital copy of the book, so you'll have the chance to read it before everyone else will. The giveaway is open worldwide and ends March 12th, 2019. Good luck!

  9. I think the cover is very gressive. I have seen a lot of blood while studying in medical college. I also made deep search as I needed to conduct sample essay nursing and many other papers. I am a bit sick of this horror and bloody books.
