Not only does Bell document his scrupulous and at times wonderfully creepy research methods, but he also provides a framework of popular "vampire" analysis against which the reader may measure the substance of the material he dredges from local legends, old newspaper articles and archived memoirs, and contemporary interviews.

The shadow of the fictional Dracula, Bell suggests, obscures or subsumes countless variants within a perhaps archetypal belief that the dead at times "feed" on the living. Such beliefs have at times resulted yes, in New England in the exhumation of corpses to be examined for the presence of liquid blood, particularly in the heart, followed by various practices thought to end the parasitic behavior of the dead.

Sep 01, Mindy Sorensen rated it it was amazing. This book is really awesome!
I definately learned a lot! There was one thing that I really loved, when it was talking how to bury people you didn't want to come back from the dead, one of the things they did was put their shoes on the wrong feet, so it would confuse them when they rose, I thought that was hilarious! There is a bunch of fun stuff like that, awesome facts.
The book also talked about tv shows that had to do with heroes and vampires, and it made me want to go and watch them! Overall This book is really awesome! Overall I say this book is incredible, and its one I will keep forever! Nov 15, Amanda rated it liked it. A pretty handy compendium of monsters and their respective counterparts, this book is nice for any aspiring horror or fantasy writer because it provides just enough information to get the storytelling juices flowing and allows for the prospective writer to narrow down their research pretty quickly.
It delves a little bit into the philosophical side of the evolution of today's monsters and ghouls, but nothing too in depth, which I have to say was kind of a disappointment, since I was expecting th A pretty handy compendium of monsters and their respective counterparts, this book is nice for any aspiring horror or fantasy writer because it provides just enough information to get the storytelling juices flowing and allows for the prospective writer to narrow down their research pretty quickly.

Jan 30, Jennifer Monzon rated it liked it Shelves: I found the title extremely misleading. Instead it seems to be mostly a catalog of characters from different TV shows, graphic novels, cartoons, movies, books, and games. Jan 06, Clayton Bye rated it really liked it Shelves: Dec 28, Kristina Rienzi rated it it was amazing. As a paranormal writer, this book was priceless! An enjoyable supernatural reference guide that I couldn't live without. I find myself referring to it with each new story I plot. A must read for all writers with non-human characters.
Jul 30, Jenn Swanson rated it really liked it. This book I would recommend to anyone who is interested in the horror genre. It covers movies, books, comics, etc. It is full of fun facts and information in an interesting way. Mar 28, Kristin rated it it was ok. I like the premise of the book, the survey of monsters and monster hunters.
However, it was poorly edited. It was written by Garth Ennis. That kind of a mistake just makes me wonder what else was missed. Jul 11, Peggy rated it liked it.
A collection of essays on the traditions surrounding the history of those who fight evil. Clearly written for a pop culture audience, there's some interesting history here, but a lot of repetition and some bad copy editing slow down a pretty fun ride. Dec 12, Jage rated it it was ok. Apr 14, Darcy rated it it was ok Shelves: This was an interesting book, one which explores so many myths that we read about in fiction and what their impact is on pop culture. Real life killers and good vs evil is also discussed. Nov 22, Karmen rated it did not like it. I actually couldn't finish it.
I think I thought it would be quite different from what it turned out to be Nov 06, Mystee rated it really liked it.
