‘I Am Legend’ wins Vampire novel of the century

Richard Matheson’s novel has been given a one-off award to mark the 100th anniversary of Bram Stoker’s death.

Congratulations to Matheson! Personally, I think it is an amazing novel and a must-read for anybody interested in post-apocalypse or vampire novels.

A shame I have already done a discussion piece on vampires or this would have been the perfect example to talk about my favourite examples. I have nothing new to add since then aside from that the second part of Justin Cronin’s series The Twelve is released in October.

      Personally I think the award is justifed though if ‘The Passage’ had been released more than two years ago it may have gone the other way.

        I wasn’t a fan of the CG vampires. I did like the story though and how they made it. I just wish it would have stuck closer to the book.
