Front Cover
Visible Ink, 1998 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 500 pages
What you will find is detailed biographies on major fictional vampires who've fascinated us mere mortals for the last three centuries. Written by vampire expert J. Gordon Melton, The Vampire Gallery explores the evolving image of the vampire and how it's contributed to the larger dramatic myth first captured in Bram Stoker's turn-of-the-century masterpiece, Dracula. These dark and immortal souls are drawn from literature, film, theater, poetry and graphic novels and include historical figures who've been treated as vampires in later fiction. Generously illustrated with 130 photographs and engaging sidebars, The Vampire Gallery provides a unique tour into the fascinating world of these children of the night.
