Matthew Quinn Martin’s Top 10 Vampire Myths from Around the Globe
For the past hundred plus years, the vampire has been an enduring figure in western culture. They are everywhere––from Fear Street to Sesame Street…from serial novels to breakfast cereals…and just about everywhere else. Most of these vamps are, in many ways, the direct descendants of Bram Stoker’s most famous creation. However, vampires (in many various forms) pop up all over the world.
As I was researching my (WARNING! SHAMELESS PLUG DEAD AHEAD!) debut novel Nightlife, I got to meet a few of these lesser-known blood suckers. They’ve been bugging me to give them an introduction. Thankfully the fine folks at All Things Urban Fantasy said OK, and now here they are to say hello (and Happy Halloween).

For centuries an ancient evil has slept beneath the streets of New Harbor. This Halloween, it wakes up.
An action-packed debut horror novel from talented new writer Matthew Quinn Martin, Nightlife pits a feisty bartender and a mysterious loner against bloodthirsty terrors as alluring as they are deadly.
Nightclub bartender and serial heartbreaker Beth Becker might be a cynic. But when her best friend goes missing Halloween night, Beth knows it’s up to her to find out what happened.
Her quest will take her on an odyssey through the crumbling city of New Harbor, Connecticut. Along the way she meets a homeless prophet warning of something he calls the “Night Angel”-a bloodthirsty creature that feeds on the forgotten. And she will form an unlikely bond with a hunted stranger who knows all too well what stalks the streets at night.
