The Historian

The Historian

I could see his face better now, and the cruel strength of it made me shrink back – the great dark eyes under knitted brows, the long straight nose, the broad bonelike cheeks. His mouth, I saw now, was closed in a hard smile, ruby and curving under his wiry, dark mustache. At one corner […]

And Then The Nightmare Came At Last

And Then The Nightmare Came At Last

I love this book just as much as I did last year. Perhaps even more, if that’s possible. As far as I know, the English version hasn’t been published yet. Until then and before I write about some other stories by Oliviu Crâznic, I figured it would be a good idea to turn my attention […]

Mi-a atras atenția pentru că era o cărțulie elegantă, neagră, cu un liliac anemic pe copertă. Jurnalul unui vampir, scria sub el. Nu chiar cea mai inspirată idee pentru un titlu, dar […]

Old-school vampires: Carmilla

Old-school vampires: Carmilla

Am citit Dracula pentru prima oară când aveam în jur de paisprezece ani; a fost urmat de alte câteva romane cu vampiri şi eseuri despre vampirism. Cu cât trecea timpul, cu atât fascinaţia mea pentru literatura gotică şi pentru „nosferatu” creştea; dar odată cu ea creştea şi dezgustul şi dezamăgirea pentru modul în care vampirii […]
