Overview

A fully ePub compatible rendition of George Sylvester Viereck's classic vampire tale. In the spirit of Bram Stoker's Dracula, "The House of the Vampire" will keep you turning pages and it will surely be a favorite in your collection!

One of the first psychic vampire novels of its time - where the vampire feeds off of more than just blood - The House of the Vampire is an early classic in its genre. Republished in this new edition, this Victorian novel operates in the continuum of life and death. What has been can be again, though often terribly transformed. Energetically inventive and infused with a relish for the supernatural, especially the trappings of the dark, The House of the Vampire delivers a horror which we know does not - but none the less conceivably might - exist and threaten ourselves. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, The House of the Vampire is considered a classic among Victorian Gothic stories. He felt the presence of the hand of Reginald Clarke - unmistakably - groping in his brain as if searching for something that had still escaped him. He tried to move, to cry out, but his limbs were paralysed. When, by a superhuman effort, he at last succeeded in shaking off the numbness that held him enchained, he awoke just in time to see a figure, that of a man, disappearing in the wall that separated Reginald's apartments from his room.... George Sylvester Viereck (1884 - 1962), remembered today chiefly for his contributions to fantasy literature, was born in Germany and emigrated to the United States with his family at age 11. He was editor of the magazine The Fatherland, and author of Confessions of a Barbarian and Glimpses of the Great.
About 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.

    A psychic vampire ages before LaVey coined the phrase!

    I refuse to spoil this brilliant piece, but I will say this. Studying vampirology and lycanology is a very important part of life. No student's library is complete without this work as it is one of the first, if not the first pieces featuring a psychic vampire. Brilliant work with a choppy, yet chillingly unsettling ending. A must for any horror fan...at least a must for any dedicated one.
