Overview

"Throughout the whole vast shadowy world of ghosts and demons," Montague Summers wrote in his 1928 book Vampire: His Kith and Kin, "there is no figure so terrible, no figure so dreaded and abhorred, yet dight [adorned] with such fearful fascination, as the vampire." The "fearful fascination" that Summers refers to has not waned.

Lively narrative, personal accounts from the past and present, and strange facts will appeal to casual readers and student researchers alike.
