A beautiful little pocket-sized feast of vampire lore, complete with blood-red ribbon and silver gilded page edges
 
A pint-sized overview of the ever-mutating vampire, this book traces the phenomenon created by primal human fears of blood-sucking monsters. It delves into ancient vampiric beliefs including the Chinese hopping vampire Jiangshi and Egyptian goddess Sekhmet, as well as Gothic horrors from the late Middle Ages. The evolution of vampires in literature, film, and television is comprehensively covered. Literature includes the iconic Dracula tale, Stephen King's Salem's Lot; and the Twilight series; movies include Nosferatu, the first Hollywood take on vampires, and such modern films such as the Blade trilogy and New Moon; and TV shows include The Twilight Zone, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries.
