2 Reviews
This encyclopedic and exquisitely eerie guide tells readers everything they need to know about the black angels that stalk the earth. As elegant and menacing as the creatures it describes, Vampire examines the hidden practices, spells, and horrors of these fiends and provides the reader with the facts necessary to foil these ghouls of the night: how to identify, elude, avoid, and kill. It also looks at the antidotes-the crucifix, wooden stake, and garlic-and reveals which work and which do not. Vampire is an entertaining and erudite collection of myth, folklore, literature, and popular culture.
