Heh, I never knew that different cultures around the world had so many types of vamps. Was pretty cool read, though it was obviously an old book style-wise. Worth the low price!
Turns out this book was the first serious study of vampirism written in English. What makes this book worth the read is the coverage of so many different folk tales and legends about vampires. A great introduction to a weird and horrifying subject.
