This granddaddy of vampire fiction was penned ‘waaaaaay back in 1975, but is still amazingly popular today. Stephen King, one of my all time favorite authors, asks a simple question with this book: what if Dracula moved to YOUR small hometown? Maybe he keeps to himself, maybe not. Maybe he likes to be alone…or maybe he plans to turn the entire town into blood sucking zombies who will keep him company. Maybe you’re safe if you lock the door…or maybe you’re not. As more and more townspeople start taking naps during the daytime hours, it’s up to one young man and his writer friend to figure out how to save the soul of a town that may have already sold it to the devil. Oooooo, this novel is so scary, I wouldn’t recommend reading it after dark.
