Vampires: The Neverending Story
A recent article on Slate by Christopher Beam and Chris Wilson begs the question, "When have we not been in the midst of a vampire craze?" It's an apt proposition, as I can't really remember a time in my life where fanaticism for the bloodsucking undead hasn't been de rigueur. The authors then focus on compiling data (and handy charts!) on recent eras sans vampire, which they christen [har har] "The Garlic Years." Timely, interesting, and worth a laugh.
