    Brad Steiger shines the light of day on the bloodsucking realm.

    Today I finished reading Brad Steiger's excellent new book, Real Vampires, Night Stalkers, and Creatures from the Darkside.

    As usual, Brad has demonstrated that both his knowledge and his evaluation of his subject are unsurpassed. This new volume is a fitting companion and successor to the one which was written on this topic by Montague Summers, decades ago. Brad has brought his relentless research and eye for detail to bear on this topic, and has not been shy about writing about the spiritual implications, sources, and origins of vampiric entities of all types.

    In this volume, a virtual grimoire on the topic, he examines the role of spiritual intrusion, oppression, and possession in various forms, and how they all manifest in vampiric activity or manifestations. He ties age-old blood cults to modern day vampiric serial killers, and new manifestations such as the black-eyed beings, who must be "invited in" just like the vampires of lore and legend. Brad is not afraid of the hints and explanations given to us in our earliest religions as to the origins of this phenomenon, displaying a necessary boldness that many so-called modern researchers on the paranormal, the mysterious, and the "Fortean" leave lacking in their own research, out of worries of being ridiculed or demeaned by their so-called peers. Not Brad -- He recognizes that all paranormal and spiritual matters are interlinked and interrelated, even when they seem to manifest in our own physical reality.

    All serious students of vampire lore, demonology, the paranormal, and other Fortean topics should read this book. I recommend it as highly and enthusiastically as possible!
