Born in Chicago, Illinois to a Jewish family from Russia (Wallace is an Americanised version of Wallechinsky), Wallace developed an interest in writing early in life. As a teenager he sold his stories to magazines, before serving in the Frank Capra unit during the Second World War.
I have always loved the idea of vampires, they are the one fictional character I still harbour a secret desire to meet in real life, and no not the vegetarian sparkly kind although I am a Twilight fan, but the proper vampires; I’m not stupid, I’d be protected with my crucifix and garlic cloves of course. My preferred vampires are darkly dangerous, inhuman and truly horrifying vampires who don’t want you to love them, just entertain and feed them. With that in mind here are The Top Five Vampire Novels in the World according to me.
