05/14/2003 Entry: "Vampires on the small and large screens"
Vampire fans might enjoy Janet Miller's A Minor Compendium of Vampires, a comparison and contrast of literary vampires. Future revisions of the article might have to include Mrs. Mina Murray Harker of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Mrs. Harker is "a courageous lady of impeccable breeding, undaunted by an unfortunate incident in her past" -- being turned into a vampire by Dracula himself. In the forthcoming movie, Miss Murray is playing by the intense Peta Wilson (from the tv show Nikita).
