"The House of the Vampire," by George Sylvester Viereck, is the story of an author, The Vampire, who has the strange faculty of appropriating, through some psychological influence, which he has cultivated to its extreme, the most desired traits of other men and leaving them bereft. From a writer, he drains his plots; from an artist, her ability. Strangely, he exerts upon his subjects a terrible influence. The mad house and physical degeneration follow the spell. A powerful but morbid tale, that might have been written by Oscar Wilde and inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson. Professor Hugo Munsterberg, Professor of Psychology at Harvard, would be interested.

Meet the Author

George Sylvester Viereck (1884 - 1962), remembered today chiefly for his contributions to fantasy literature, was born in Germany, emigrated to the United States with his family at age 11. He was editor of a magazine, The Fatherland, which advocated fair play for the Central Powers when World War I came out. The magazine quickly became very popular, reaching a circulation of 100,000, and changed its name to American Monthly when the US broke with Germany. Despite his support for the American war effort, the anti-German hysteria affected Viereck, and he suffered the boycott that many German-Americans felt during those years.

    This may be a free google book, but it will entertain you.

    This was a quick read with a fairly well fleshed out plot. I would recommend this to anyone.
