After 90 Years: The Story of Serbian Vampire Sava Savanovic

This is an early nineteenth-century vampire fiction that I’d not come across before: After 90 Years: The Story of Serbian Vampire Sava Savanovic (1860), by the Serbian Milosan Glivic, and newly translated into English by James Lyon. It appears unusual in that it fictionalises the traditional monstrous vampire of East European peasant folklore rather than taking up the transformation initiated by Polidori that most fictional vampires have followed since. I’ll be buying this!
