The Postmillennial Vampire

Congratulations to Dr Sue Chaplin of Leeds Beckett University on her new book, The Postmillennial Vampire: Power, Sacrifice and Simulation in True Blood, Twilight and Other Contemporary Narratives, out now from Palgrave Macmillan. This book explores the contemporary figure of the vampire in the light of law and the idea of ‘sacred violence’ as expounded by René Girard. There are few monographs which have engaged with the vampire in its more recent incarnations and this looks innovative and essential.
