New Vampire Novels
More "new" as far as authors doing new things with the vampire. We've got a couple of vampire detectives, a depressed vampire, humorous vampires, vampire societies, etc. These aren't the "chick-lit" vampires that have been popular recently.   Print this list Print this list

Fledgling : a novel
Butler, Octavia E.
Shori looks like a 10-year-old black girl, but she's actually a 50-something vampire, a genetically-altered member of the Ina race who awakens with amnesia to discover the burnt remains of the commune where she was living. This is an excellent novel, very similar to Hubbard's (see below), with a great exploration of the Ina race and their symbiotic relationships with human beings. Shori comes under fire from renegades within the larger community who are worried about the mingling of vampire and human genes, allowing for Butler to bring in themes of racism and bigotry. Since this was her last book before her untimely death in 2006, we won't (unfortunately) be seeing a sequel.

Fingerman, B. H., 1964-
Very much in the vein of Huston's novels--follows the travails of an ordinary vampire who struggles to get along and remain under the radar, until he makes a new friend who teaches him how to enjoy being a vampire. Very imaginative and often funny book.

Fox, Andrew 1964-
The return of Jules and friends, this is also a very effective mystery novel as a series of vampire killings appear to have some connection to a real estate and re-development plan. Hope there's a third Jules Duchon novel someday.

Fat white vampire blues
Fox, Andrew 1964-
Excellent introduction to Jules Duchon, the "fat white vampire" of the title. Jules lives in a pre-Katrina New Orleans and gets caught up in a power struggle among rival vampire clans. All he wants is to be left alone. Very funny book.

The Society of S
Hubbard, Susan
Really enjoyed this one, a coming-of-age novel as a young girl being raised by a single father comes to grips with the fact that she might be a vampire. The 'Society of S' of the title are the "sanguinists," vampires who are conservationists and environmentalists (because, after all, as immortals, they have a stake in seeing the Earth endure). I would love to read more about these characters and this world.

Huston, Charlie
Great first book in the Joe Pitt, vampire detective, series. Very hardboiled story of vampire life in a complex collection of different vampire societies. One even believes vampires shouldn't be in hiding, but should take their rightful place out in the open, alongside their human prey.

Sosnowski, David
Humorous look at the vampire life, set in a world where vampires are the majority and humans the minority, many of them raised on blood farms. Another very inventive look at the modern vampire and his troubles.
