Turning a human  Reply with quote  

I was a little confused about how humans were turned into vamps.

My first question was in Bloodsucking Fiends why Tommy didn't suck a little vampire blood. Obviously he read the Anne Rice novels, which clearly explain this technique.

My next question was how vamps actually become vamps. The smurf woman may have ingested some of Tommy's vamp blood because the room was dripping with it from his torture, but I'm not sure if they had to ingest vamp blood or simply get close to death. Any insight into this or opinons?

Thats the nice thing about comedy...who cares if the science don't work, as long as it gets a laugh. And hell, every author who has written vampire stuff makes their own rules. The mind of CM is a labyrinthian journey to the second window. Thanks, come again.

this reminds me of an episode of the x-files in which moulder tells scully that they are either dealing with the occult or vampires. to which she replies that its obviously not vampires and when he asks her why she answers in that long suffering voice that made the series great. "Because vampires don't exist moulder."

Yes, I suppose it doesn't need to be technical. It was my favorite book so far. I laughed so hard that people would come up and ask me what I was reading.

It was just something that I kept thinking about and I wondered if I missed something. Thanks for responding.
