True Vampires: Blood-Sucking Killers Past and Present
Vampires have frightened and fascinated readers for centuries. This illustrated book examines real vampires whose crimes have contributed to the mythos. Ripped from today's headlines and mined from historical records, True Vampires invades the minds of real blood-sucking killers from Romania, Russia, France, Wales, Brazil, South Africa, the Kentucky hills, and the streets of Los Angeles. Part I, "The Undead Zone," traces the history of vampirism, from Jesus to Dracula to Vlad the Impaler. Part II, "Vampire Crime," describes gory historical events in grisly detail. Part III, "Interview with a Vampire," is a conversation between the author and an unindicted spokesvampire and his consort, who report on the lifestyle of vampire role-players as practiced today in New York City.
