While a lot of agent and publishing blogs say that vampires are dead, others say that they’ll never really die. Of course, it’s hard to kill what’s already dead, isn’t it?

I read on a message board that an agent tweeted she was looking for selkies and mermaids. Months back, Publisher’s Weekly had an article about the publishing world looking for the next dead thing.
I’m curious. Whatever NYC might be looking for, I’d like to know what YOU want to read. What kinds of supernatural beings interest you?
