ABC Wednesday - V

This ABC is almost in the end, and today the letter is V.

I hope nobody will be scared of my little Vampire walking at daylight... I always loved reading about these gloomy creatures, and at home I have several books with them as characters, like Dracula, by Bram Stoker - the first and best for me; Lestat and Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice (who drastically changed her storytelling subjects now, btw); The Last Vampire, by Whitley Strieber; Salem's Lot, by Stephen King (bow down...). Not to mention the many movies available, like The Hunger, also inspired by a Whitley Streber's novel, with Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie; the ultimate Bram Stoker's Dracula, directed by Coppola, which I simply adore...; Nosferatu, directed by Herzog, with Klaus Kinski, who hauted my nights for a long time with his long teeth, bold head and crazy eyes...; Dracula, with Frank Langella, that many people hate but I love the sexy vampire Langella portraited... and the Tv serie Moonlight, that seems like is over (but I loved it watching *sigh*)

There' something about this lonely, cruel, seducing man who has always enchanted me.

Also with V are these Russian Vodka bottles my boss brought from her last trip to Russia. I quitted drinking a long time ago, due to my migraines that increased even with the very few doses I used to take - not worthy at all! - and actually I hate the taste of vodka (unless if mixed with smashed lemon slices and sugar, our Brazilian caipivodca, then it's delicious), but the bottles are so cool I wanted to post them here:

That could be the cutest vampire I've seen in a long time.

Lucas is gorgeous! He's absolutely the loveliest, happiest vampire ever!
Do you know Tanya Huff's work? US TV series now out on DVD based on her books. I really enjoyed watching!

Hi Nydia - thanks for all the visits to my blog. I used to love to read vampire stories and such, but now that we have moved to Canada I have been reading histories of my new country and books by local authors. Maybe one day I'll get back to a good horror book. -- Margy

Hello, nydia!
I 'm not scared by "Lucas le vampire"!
I also love vampire stories or movies : do you know "Vampyr" of Carl Dreyer ? Awful and awesome dream...
And the novel (or short story )written by Sheridan le Fanu :Camilla", a female vampire story ?
I could add some other titles to your list!

David Bowie was sexy in "Predateurs "!

I am so sad that it sounds like Moonlight has been cancelled! Did you get the show Blood Ties? It's Canadian and set in Toronto and has a very cool vampire in it that you would love.

Have you read any of the Laurell K. Hamilton books? She has two series, one is about a necromancer who dates a vampire. They are really good. And the Twilight series is really good as well, by Stephanie Meyer. It's technically a "young adult" book, but I got over that with Harry Potter, lol!

There is a series coming on TV in the U.S. on Showtime (I have no idea if you get that in Brazil!) called True Blood, based on the Charlaine Harris vampire books. I'm hoping that one will be good.

Oh, and Happy Yule! I's neat that our sabbats are opposite :O).
