Overview

A wealth of information on the lore and history of vampires, covering all the various major traditions of this much discussed revenenant. From how to distinquish a 'real' vampire from a 'wannabee' (which helps avoid those embarrassing 'staking' mistakes), to effective means of escaping unscathed the clutches of a ravenous creature of the night, this is a comprehensive look at the ways and means of the Undead.

The Vampire Watcher's Handbook is reprinted from a turn-of-the-century compendium of the craft, complete with the annotations of the book's original owner (whose name and fate remains unknown). For those who wish to pursue a career path as the scourge of the vampires, it includes lists of necessary equipment and essential knowledge for hunting and 'retiring' all the various types of blood sucking fiends (stakes and holy water not provided with the book). But it also provides many useful tips for those for whom bird watching and trainspotting has lost its charm and now wish to observe in their natural habitat this most compelling of unnatural creatures, without ending up on the dinner menu.

    Excellent

    I like how the author puts in detail how to spot vampires and how it is not gender bias. But also this book has me hooked

    it's a great book; very amusing.

    i really like the little details added in. very few books are written that take vampyrism seriously; it makes them much more interesting when they do.

    Small but informative

    When I first picked up this book, it was only on a whim. It actually lay forgotten in the Barnes & Noble bag next to my bed for some time. When I finally "rediscovered" the book, I was impressed with not only the amount of information, but it's accuracy and organization of the subjects. This little gem of a book is a must have for ANY researcher of not only the occult, but of the various Vampire myths and legends, as well as the paranormal.
