Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The word complete in the title of this book should not be taken lightly. Guiley (Macabre's role was primarily that of researcher, it seems) runs down the history of vampires from their mythological roots to their modern-day film characterizations. Citing various sources both ancient and recent, she demonstrates the universality of belief in vampires and similar beings, and proceeding from the premise that true vampires exist but are unlike those in movies and novels, she examines the roots of the fascination with vampires, the various popular manifestations of vampires, and what exactly vampires are in the context of contemporary society. Sections on vampires in myth and folklore, entertainment, and real life as well as an exhaustive bibliography, a filmography, a glossary, and other resource lists make this an authoritative source on all aspects of the vampire. Interesting and valuable to movie fans, horror freaks, and even semiotics enthusiasts, this is definitely one vampire book to have in your collection, perhaps especially when the 75 illustrations, not available for review, are in place.

More About the Author

I work full-time in the paranormal and metaphysical fields, which means I lead a most unusual and highly adventurous life. I have written more than 50 books, including single-volume encyclopedias, on a variety of topics, A-Z, angels to zombies and everything in between. I cover the entire spectrum of the paranormal, for everything fits together, even the paranormal and the metaphysical. My work is part of my spiritual journey; probing into the Unknown, the Other Side, and other dimensions is my search for Truth.

I undertake field investigations of ghosts, UFOs, aliens, ultraterrestrials, Shadow People, Bigfoot, mysterious creatures, Djinn, demons, angels, fairies and more. I am frequently out on the road, and I have had plenty of first-hand experiences of many of the things I document in my books. We live on an "Interdimensional Earth" that is increasingly revealing itself as our consciousness expands. My work is devoted to the how and why we have other-reality experiences, and to helping people understand their experiences and integrate the value of them into life. I also deal with problem hauntings and spirit attachments.

On the metaphysical side, my work is devoted to helping people develop their spiritual path for more enlightened and prosperous living. My areas of emphasis are angels; dreams and dreamwork; intuitive, psychic and manifestation skills; the afterlife; spirit communication; meditation and prayer; past lives; and other experiences of an intense spiritual nature. I am a certified hypnotist with the International Hypnosis Federation, and have trained in various energy healing modalities.

In addition to my research and writing, I keep a busy media and lecture schedule, publish a complimentary e-newsletter called "Strange Dimensions," and run my own publishing and productions company, Visionary Living, Inc.

Format: Paperback
Two subjects make this book worth buying, whatever the price. First, A detailed travelogue of the Northen English town of Whitby, where Stoker spends 3 chapters of "Dracula." Guiliey takes you down "The Dracula Trail," retracing the steps Mina and Lucy & the Count take on those fateful days and nights in the harbor town!
Secondly, the inclusion of a "Vampire Date Book." This Annual Calendar of Dates to Remember will whet any vapire maven's whistle!!!

Her point of view and the things she brings forth fills in gaps I have always had about vampires. I recommend this as a must have.

I am not sure exactly what I thought would be in here, but I was hoping for more. I am a fan of Rosemary Ellen Guiley, so I will just add it to my collection and reference it if I need to.
