Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School—These books are equally inclusive and explore many of the same elements. The first title has chapters devoted to "Werewolves: The Beast Within," "Werewolves & Popular Culture," "The She-Wolf," "Werewolves: Fact and Folklore," and "Defense Against the Werewolf." Connections between wolves and people are explored, including wolf attacks, domestication, and accounts of children adopted by wolves, while science-documented incidences of psychosis related to werewolves and the medical condition "wolfitis" are also examined. The book explores world legends and myths and delves into movies, television shows, and literature, too. The second volume is divided into "Vampires: Body & Soul," "The Origins of Vampires," "The Evolution of Vampires," and "Vampires & Popular Culture." Legends and myths from around the world, accounts of real-life vampires, and the science of vampires are just some of the themes, while the development of vampires in literature, from John Polidori's The Vampyre, published in 1819, to present-day books such as Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series (Little, Brown) and Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake" series (Penguin), are discussed. Highlighted movies include such classics as the silent film Nosferatu and the 1931 version of Dracula featuring Bela Lugosi, along with the movies of today. Television series like The Munsters, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and True Blood are also discussed. These volumes are well researched and have extensive bibliographies. Glossy pages filled with television and movie shots, poster art, reproductions, and photographs make them visually delightful. These books should be of high interest to genre fans.—LaraMcAllister, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia
