They sleep in coffins. They cast no shadows and show no reflection in mirrors. They drink blood--and as every reader will certainly recognize by now, they are Vampires! Horror movie fans and dedicated lovers of gothic tales will want a copy of this spine-chilling volume. An opening section presents a general description of vampires, offers tips to readers on how to spot them--and most important, tells how to avoid them. But to become a true vampire expert, readers must go on to the book's second section, which defines eight different vampire types. For instance, there is the Sampiro Vampire of Albania, who wears a corpse's shroud and totters around on high heels. And from Scandinavia we encounter Draugr Vampires, who guard stockpiles of gold in their stinking nests until nightfall, when they roam the earth in search of human prey. The book's lengthy final section is a compilation of spooky vampire tales collected from around the world. The terror-inducing text is complemented with more than 100 creepy illustrations in full color--though mostly, in appropriately dark and shadowy hues.
