“Here’s the thing: love it or loathe it, the current vampire craze — right along with werewolves and zombies, et al — reminds us of one fascinating truism: We are, apparently, at a creative standstill, stuck deep in an imaginative black hole. It would seem no one has been able to invent a new mythology for the modern age, some deeply intriguing, hotly sexed-up monster designed to titillate our imaginations even as s/he speaks to modern issues and social conundrums, of revolution and change, love and death, meat and moan.” —
God I love Mark Morford.
