You should check out The Secret Life of Laszlo, Count Dracula, by Roderick Anscombe, if you haven't already. It's been awhile since I've read it, but I remember liking it and it was a nice "rational" take on the legend.
Meanwhile I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick up Twilight, by William Gay, when I saw it in that bookstore in Nashville. Now I can't find the damn thing anywhere.
