Daemons Discuss: Podcast - Take 2! | All Souls Trilogy Vampires vs. Other Literary Vampires

Take 2 - The One With All of the Vampires. 

Description: A brief comparison between famous literary vampires (written by Polidori, Stoker, Rice, Meyer and more) and the vampires we are familiar with in The All Souls Trilogy.

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read The All Souls Trilogy, including A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life.  If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  :)  Let's do this.


1.  Show notes:

For newcomers to the series:
We'll start with the basics: The books in discussion are A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night and The Book of Life.  Together they make The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. 
- Our Daemon Guides to the All Souls Trilogy are available for download: ADOW, SON, TBOL
- If you'd like a ready-reference from the author herself, be sure to download the All Souls Real-Time Reading companion (free e-book at online booksellers via Penguin and Headline books).
- Deborah Harkness usually conducts a real-time reading on her Facebook Page (starting in September), and shares her posts across social media.  Check out her website for all of her social media links, and of course all that she has to offer her readers!
- For All Souls chapter-by-chapter reading/commentary visit The All Souls Podcast.
- To see what's available on the web as far as the All Souls universe fandom, check our links page.

- John William Polidori (7 September 1795 – 24 August 1821) was an English writer and physician. He is known for his associations with the Romantic movement and credited by some as the creator of the vampire genre of fantasy fiction.
- Abraham "Bram" Stoker (8 November 1847 – 20 April 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula.

Whoops! (corrections)
- 1:25; Jean meant "Twilight" instead of "True light" :)
- 14:42; Valerie meant "1500 years," not 15 years referring to Matthew's age - and the time he wandered the earth.
- Authors not named because of momentary brain malfunctions: Meyers (of Twilight) and Harris (of the Sookie Stackhouse novels) are linked above. :)
- 22:12; Correction on what we said about the ending of True Blood: What really happened was an organization hostile to vampires planned to plant a virus into the supply of True Blood to infect and kill the entire vampire population.

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
This was a Daemon Production
