The reader is plunged into the heart of one of the most enduring traditions in the history of horror and legend: Vampirism. As elegant and menacing as the creatures they describe, these chronicles record, in intimate and gruesome detail, the physical nature of vampires, the obsessions and desires that possess them, the experiences that transport a man from humanity into the supernatural world. Within these pages are also spine-chilling particulars of vampirisms hidden rituals, spells and potions - and their antidotes - from earliest accounts to the present day, as well as a flesh-creeping journey, in the footsteps of the blood-drinkers country in search of Count Dracula. Manuela Dunn Mascetti followed the vampire trail across Eastern Europe during her studies in anthropology and mythology at London University, and as a result became deeply fascinated with this darker realm of Europes legendary past.~Librarians note: an alternate cover editionISBN: 0-7475-0996-4
