Great short novellas that all link together to tell the story of Dr. Weyland. Great read!
This was an interesting read. It isn't your typical vampire novel IMO but rather a more personal outlook at a view of one vampires life and struggling to live in a human society. I found myself liking the book sometimes but through some of it I didn't like it. So I gave it 2 1/2 stars b/c I just wasn't sure if I liked it.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Hailed by Stephen King as "scary and suspenseful" and "unputdownable," and by Peter Beagle, author of THE LAST UNICORN, as "The best vampire novel I have ever read," THE VAMPIRE TAPESTRY examines the classic monster as a biological, rather than supernatural, predator who awakens from hibernation every few decades needing to relearn human culture. After years of secret effort, the self-styled Edward Weyland has become a respected anthropology professor and director of a sleep research lab. With reliable access to unsuspecting blood donors, he grows complacent and makes a near-fatal error. First critically wounded by a strong and canny woman, then imprisoned and humiliated by a power-mad Satanist, he is forced on a journey toward an empathy with his prey that threatens the foundations of his survival.
Some wear to cover. Pages very good.
