Today’s Thursday Thirteen will be my 13 favorite Vampires from the big and small screens:
1. Bela Lugosi’s Dracula – Of course, the most famous blood sucker. He set the par. Often misquoted, he never actually said, “I vant to suck your blood.”
Memorable Quote: To die, to be really dead, that must be glorious!
2. Henry Fitzroy (from Blood Ties) – Fast becoming one of my favorite new shows. Henry, the 450-year-old vampire and illegitimate son of Henry VIII, is a artist for graphic novels and helps Vicki out with her supernatural cases.
Henry: Where are you going?
Vicki: Husband hunting.
Henry: (indicating himself) Husband material.
Vicki: You’re sweet, but you’re just not a morning person.
3 & 4. Angel & Spike (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) – Had to include the two most drooled-over vampires on tv. Of course, this Whedon tv adaptation from a movie that bombed ended up being a cult hit.
Angel: Don’t worry. I’m not here to eat.
Spike: Angel’s as dull as a table lamp, and we have much different coloring.
This one is my favorite set of clips…
A comedy about a college-age IT employee (he works for Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Nerd Herd,Ã¢â‚¬Â a mobile tech support company), who mistakenly has a wealth of government secrets downloaded into his brain and becomes an secret agent overnight.
Here are two video clips on the upcoming show premiering this fall:

When I received a review copy of The Serpent Bride, Book One in the DarkGlass Mountain saga by Sara Douglass, I was a bit apprehensive of the large book with 627 pages. But the chapters are extremely short, and it’s very easy reading. And I was hooked on the story by chapter one.
