Siciliano's third vampire novel published in 2001 is very different from the earlier ones. The first two had contemporary settings, an American locale, and some really nasty vampires. In DARKNESS, he returns to Victorian London just before the dawn of a new century and creates his first sympathetic vampire, Teresa, la Contessa di Rospa.
Blood Feud 1993, 2001
Set in and around Portland, Oregon, BLOOD FEUD uses the weather and setting of the northwest in the same way that BLOOD FARM used Iowa locales. A major episode occurs near Mount Hood, while the finale takes place at the Oregon Coast. A young man and woman are caught up in an ancient feud between two vampires, a male and female.
Blood Farm 1988
How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm...?
Siciliano's first vampire novel is a retelling of the Dracula story set amidst the Iowa corn fields in the early 70s. Hitchhiking undergraduate Angela Rosalba learns that it is not a good idea to accept rides in a battered ancient Cadillac hearse, even on a February evening when the temperature hovers near zero degrees.
