Overview

The Complete Book of Vampires is possibly the most comprehensive book ever published on one of the world's oldest and most terrifying legends.

Dr. Ashley's work covers everything from Bram Stoker's Dracula (a story so compelling that after a century it has yet to go out of print) to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This book provides insight into the role of the vampire in history, literature and folklore, as well as serving as an anthology of hard-to-find vampire tales.

Included in this text is the original first chapter of Stoker's Dracula (which was cut by the publisiher before the book's publication) as well as several other pertinent and compelling short stories. Also, its listings of films and books make it a valuable source of reference for fans, and its wealth of unusual illustrations is a special feature of this fascinating book.
