The Vampire in Folklore, History, Literature, Film and Television is the most comprehensive listing of writings about the vampire and related creatures covering material generated through the nineteenth and twentieth century to the present. The listings document the penetration of the vampire into all areas of Western society from scholarly discourse to popular culture, from politics to cook books. It especially reaches into to the mass market aspects of vampire life in television and the movies from Bela Lugosi's Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Blood, and the Twilight Saga. Beginning with vampire folklore, the volume covers historical writings, the vampire in literature, the cinema and television, and its widespread appearing in academic writings and its presence among true believers who want nothing more than to become a child of the night.
