A Vampire Novel Featuring New Hampshire's Colonial Governor

Oct 31, 2013

Vampire novels are big these days, but here’s one with a few twists: for one thing, part of the book takes place in 19th century Portsmouth.

And the lead vampire is named for the colonial governor of New Hampshire.

The book is called The Vampire Benning Wentworth and the End of Times, and it's written by Paul Jesep, a columnist, a former resident of Portsmouth and an ordained Orthodox priest.

He talks about the book, and why the Seacoast is an ideal place for a vampire story, to All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.
