    Paul Feval s almost entirely unknown book which I only found after researching a random reference in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a post modern masterpiece before there was post modernism It s like a ridiculous episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, crossed with an Ann Radcliffe melodrama, as written with Voltaire s sense of humor An ensemble cast of delightfully tongue in cheek stereotypes go o

    A horror comedy, supposedly showing events which led Ann Radcliffe to write Mysteries of Udolpho This is a pre D racula vampire story and as such none of the usual vampire rules apply The story is told to the author by a servant, who heard it from Miss Radcliffe These layers of removal from the actual events make it feel like reading myth or urban legend and allows the reader to easily ignore any errors or

    Vampire City is an obscure work of horror comedy metafiction written in France circa 1870, and if that description doesn t pique your interest, what are you doing on Goodreads Paul F val imagines Ann Radcliffe, the English Gothic novelist, running away from home on the morning of her wedding day to rescue two of her childhood friends, who have gotten caught up in the schemes of a nefarious vampire F val

    When I read Blackcoat Press s edition of Feval s Knightshade, I was severely disappointed that the contents of the story couldn t match the surreal creepiness of the cover, but part of me doubted that any 19th Century author could come up with something that weird Even Maupassant at his most insane didn t come up with imagery that could match that But lo, Vampire City, which sports equally bizarre cover art, actu

    I really need to read some of the works by Ann Radcliffe, because jumping into Vampire City without any background into her work was like trying mend a broken bone without any background in first aid The narration of 97 drove me freaking insane, were it not for Merry Bones and my curiosity of Selene I am doubtful that I would have finished it With that out of the way however the vampires were pretty interesting and

    Odd mish mash of vampire story, gothic melodrama and fantasy.Very meta, as the gothic writer, Ann Radcliffe is one of the characters in the book Yet, despite being talked about like she s the hero, she spends the whole book acting like a damsel.Most of the work, and hero ing is done by the stereotypical Irish servant of one of the other main characters.I have the vague feeling this was originally done as a satire, as

    Another 19th century vampire novel down Vampire City contains some comical elements that were refreshing amongst the darker vampire texts I ve been studying It s not a difficult read, and I enjoyed the overly bizarre and coincidental events and characters This text pre dates Dracula therefore, the normal vampire characteristics do not apply and Paul F val p re creates a unique type of vampire.

    For a book written during the 1850s, this is a surprisingly modern absurdest parody of vampire and gothic fiction Given the time period, it s a little offensive the Irish stereotypes were a little off putting but saying that, it s still amazing relevant to the gothic vampire genre It s a pity then that I don t like such parodies or that it doesn t raise itself above modern pieces.

    A terrible book, but a very enjoyable one Nothing beats 19th century French pulp horror fiction when it comes to crazy Also interesting as a vampire novel written before Dracula and therefore free to make up much of its mythology.
