by Nigel Suckling — illustrated by Bruce Pennington
Nigel Suckling is the UK's leading authority on Vampires and the myth and legend which surrounds them. In this elegant volume he uses Bram Stoker's Dracula as the starting point, examines the folklore and legend that Stoker drew on and looks at the historical figures - Vlad the Impaler, Elizabeth Bathory, Bluebeard - and, finally, traces the significance of bloodlust in ancient and medieval times.
The illustrations are by that master of fantasy and science fiction art, Bruce Pennington.
