The undead are hotter than ever with the release next month of the next installment in the "Twilight" film saga.
But as professor Sue Weaver Schopf points out, vampires have been figures in literature for over a century above and beyond Bram Stoker's "Dracula."
Schopf, who teaches a course in "The Vampire In Literature and Film" at Harvard Extension School, says that there are over 1,100 novels and short stories and over 300 movies that have been made on the subject.
