EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

Put your fears aside and step into the realm inhabited by those dark-cloaked creatures of the night known for generations as vampires. They have been worshipped, hunted, mythologized, fantasized about, and feared...and their macabre adventures have been chronicled by some of the world's most imaginative and gifted writers.
According to legend, vampires live forever-and our fascination with them seems equally enduring. Perhaps what springs to mind when you contemplate these clusive, terrifying creatures is a flickering, black-and white image of Bela Lugosi in full evening attire, gliding down a towering stairease bidding his unwitting guests a civilized "good evening" or, with a swirl of his cape, metamorphosing into a bat and disappearing into the light of a full moon. But if the Hollywood version of Count Dracula is the one most indefibly etched in our minds, it is by no means the first or only incarnation of the vampire to haunt our dreams and capture our imaginations.

In this towering collection, featuring two centuries of spine-tingling literature, lore, ephemera, and history, noted vampire authority David J. Skal takes us on an unprecedented tour through this most captivating of subjects. From classies of the world's literature to pulp magazine serials to actual historical accounts. Skal has packed this volume with great, bloodcurdling writing. There's even an interview with a contemporary, self-confessed blood-drinker!

Every page of Vampires also features a column of commentary by Skal, expanding and reflecting upon the stories and exploring the evolution of the vampire mystique in folklore, literature, and popular culture. Some 200 beautifully rendered black-and-white images, most from Skal's extensive personal collection and ranging from vintage engravings to film stills and posters to pop-cultural artifacts, make this book a true Vampire's Feast.

Do vampires really exist? Says Skal in his introduction. "It should be obvious that vampires prowl the very fabric of modern consciousness... You will have to draw your own conclusions, but I hope this book will provide ample food for thought. And skeptics may be admonished to remember one of Professor Van Helsing's shrewdest observations: 'The strength of the vampire is that people will not believe in him.' Disbelieve, then, at your peril."
