Hadn't seen or heard of this before a trip to Seattle, where it was lurking, waiting to be given a good home.

I can't say that Matthew Bunson is held in high regard, since I don't rate his THE SHERLOCK HOLMES ENCYCLOPEDIA particularly highly, but the entries that I've looked at in this vampire volume seem competent, and it's a useful addition to the reference shelf.

Almost as good as the Vampire Book this is a must have for those that truly are interested in the subject of vampires.
A good information book for all your vampire needs! Covers vampires all over the world, media, and in real life (Vlad The Impaler). Great for research if you want to write about vampires or kill them.
I haven't read the whole book but it looked like a necessary addition to my reference collection. There are over 2,000 entries including several lists of books and films, plays and even poetry.
If you are looking for a writing resource, this is a good informational encyclopedia without drama, references back to movies, etc. and includes good descriptions of folkloric vampirism.
As a Game Master, I've often found inspiration in the mythologies of the world. This book is a fantastic collection of the myths and stories of vampires from around the world.
All that you need to know about you demons, vamps, werewolves and other supernaturals.
