She moved to Edmonds with her husband 12 years ago. While the genre targets teenagers, its largest fan base is arguably middle-age women.
This was the case for her. William Sargant from England would sedate the patients for months on end, waking them only to care for their basic needs, in hopes of getting them through. Of those who survived, there was a tragic amount of memory loss, she said. Patients enter a sleep for months, emerging with perfectly sculpted bodies. Bardsley is also a major advocate for community, and not just for writers.

Stoker, of course, did not invent the vampire, as most cultures have, most appropriately, dreaded blood-sucking nocturnal monsters. What Stoker did most successfully was to highlight how attracted we are to them, to their power, their sexuality, and their immortality. We want it… but what about the moral cost of a blood-based diet?

Eclipse - Book 3 (twilight series)
We want it… but what about the loneliness of immortality? When was the last time you saw a vampire without a date, or without the kind of family trouble that makes you wish for some loneliness?

Originally published at Phase Leap. There have been similar characters, themes and situations in vampire fiction for decades at least. Twilight just happened to become exceptionally popular with teenage girls, without really being innovative in any cultural or intellectual sense. I for one am not looking forward to Twilight movies even though my girlfriend always drags me to see them at the first opportunity , but True Blood on the other hand I consider great entertainment.
Vile and barbaric fetishes based on sublimation and deceit and the subjugation of innocents! What type of transhumanism are you proposing? But really, this obsession with vampires is entirely juvenile, no matter what age you are.
For years Hammer Horror B-movies have associated sex with horror, and especially the whole series with the brilliant Christopher Lee as the dark prince, not Ozzy Osbourne. Read Frankenstein if you want a true horror story. Originally, vampire stories could be nothing if not horror; afterward, they were by definition about moral conflict and temptation. Twilight is neither entertaining nor well-written nor well-acted , but the fact that it can thoughtlessly use vampires and have the protagonist want to be a vampire, without once making any of the usual questions, is, I think, an interesting symptom of cultural change.
In most of our stories during the recent centuries, gaining immortality was portrayed as a Faustian deal.

There should still be some cautionary scepticism here, even with the most trivial and light-weight representations of this type of barbarism.
