THE VAMPIRE IN FOLKLORE, HISTORY, LITERATURE, FILM & TELEVISION: A COMPREHENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY – compiled by J. Gordon Melton & Alysa Hornick -388 pages .McFarland $45.00 paperback $16.19 Kindle http://www.mcfarlandbooks.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-9936-6
A quick reference bibliography that covers books and magazine articles as well as stage ,film and other forms of entertainment since 1800 , as well as reports of vampirism attacks from the early 1700s.
The book is broken down into various chapters to make your search easier. It is mindboggling how much work went into this tome, and it is one that anyone who is serious about vampires both in history and other diversions should have in their collection . Yours truly was surprised to see his name pop up for a piece he wrote for CHILLER THEATRE MAGAZINE back in 1994 so the researchers really have dug far and wide for their material.
The one problem with books of this nature is that popular subjects like vampires have new material appear nearly every day and the book only goes to 2013 .However, that said, for almost any research material before then , this is a must have book . Perhaps in a few years they will add addendums but even if they don’t you would be hard pressed to find such a well-researched bibliography.
