This comprehensive bibliography covers writings about vampires and related creatures from the 19th century to the present. More than 6,000 entries document the vampire’s penetration of Western culture, from scholarly discourse, to popular culture, politics and cook books.
Sections by topic list works covering various aspects, including general sources, folklore and history, vampires in literature, music and art, metaphorical vampires and the contemporary vampire community. Vampires from film and television—from Bela Lugosi’s Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Blood and the Twilight Saga—are well represented.
