A century after Bram Stoker made the vampire one of the most potent images in all of literature, the cult of the undead is as alive as ever. Not only on celluloid and in the pages of fiction, but from the S&M clubs of New York City to Midwest high schools, the creature walks among us. In Children of the Night, Tony Thorne provides a riveting account of the history, meaning, and resonance of the vampire. This rich and enthralling work draws from a wealth of sources, including European folklore, current research in Eastern Europe, and exclusive interviews with contemporary living vampiresthe very latest incarnations of a phenomenon that will not die.
