Saturday Word Play: Vampire Crossword

This week's edition of Saturday Word Play is inspired by Carls's R.I.P. Challenge which officially began on October 1st and runs to Halloween. Each Saturday for the month of October, I'll be trying to make Saturday Word Play Halloween or horror themed.

With this crossword puzzle, I'll give you the name of a vampire, you give me the author. As always, feel free to do them all at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 10 people will have a chance to play. Use the answers others have given to help:
Across:
2. Dracula
3. Barlow
5. Bunnicula
6. Count Saint-Germain
8. Carmilla
9. Lestat

Down:
1. Jody
2. Count Nightwing
4. Lilith
7. Edward Cullen

#5 across is James Howe! I loved Bunnicula so much growing up!!

Wanda said...

Could #2 down be (R.L.)Stine, as in Goosebumps?

John Mutford said...

You're all right so far!

Carrie K said...

#8 across is Joseph Sheridan le Fanu. Thank you Bobby Goren for that one!

John Mutford said...

Carrie: Who's Bobby Goren?

And since there's a typo in 6 across, I'll answer that one. It's (Chelsea Quinn) Yarbro- but I was one block short!

That leaves only 1 down left.

Can I answer 1 down?

John Mutford said...

Gautami: Of course, it's open to everyone. And I suspect number 1 is a toughie, so if you know it, please go right ahead!

Raych: Me too! In fact, I just finished reading it to my daughter for the first time.

Bobby Goren is the character Vincent D'Onofrio plays in Law & Order Criminal Intent. One of his murder cases involved a La Fanu fan group.
