The Delicate Dependency

by Michael Talbot


The Delicate Dependency

This is one of the best vampire books I’ve ever read, capturing the best elements of the mythology and exploring them with a depth rarely encountered. It’s unfortunate that this book is out of print and hard to find because it’s head and shoulders above the likes of Anne Rice and other popular novels still in print. It compares favorably with Suzy McKee Charnas’ “The Vampire Tapestry” and reminds me of the scientific aspects of vampirism in Brian Stableford’s “Empire of Fear”.
