My Ghost Writer, the Vampire

“My Ghost Writer, the Vampire” was adapted from one of my comic-book stories that initially brought me to his attention of the Tales From the Darkside folks. It was based on a story of the same name that had appeared in The Unexpected #197 back in 1980.

In the episode, which first aired February 1, 1987, Jeff Conaway portrayed a hack horror writer, while Roy Dotrice was the bloodsucker who traded his vampiric knowledge in exchange for a place to hide during the day.
