Vampires and Vampirism: Now Available!



This work is one of a number of interesting titles on the subject of vampirism that come in the late premodern period. Many works even from that interesting early 20th century academic era only fixate on vampires as the bloodsuckers of specifically southeastern European lore- this work manages to extend its scope to Asia and Russia as well and includes a number of interesting poems and stories. In the most amusing inclusion, it classes Bram Stokers' "Dracula" as an exciting modern romance- this being amusing only because the work dates to over a century ago.

Only a small proportion of works I edit actually grab my attention fully whilst being edited- this is one of those books and I highly recommend it.
