Vampires, Burial, and Death

The bulk of Paul Barber's nonfiction book VAMPIRES, BURIAL, AND DEATH: FOLKLORE AND REALITY (1988) doesn't explain the origins of vampire superstitions, although one short chapter, "The Soul After Death," suggests some possibilities. What this book does is offer a detailed explanation of how vampire beliefs, once they arose, persisted because physical evidence seemed to support them. Written accou

Margaret Carter As much as I love physical bookstores, it was so often a frustrating experience to look for a book in a store and not find it. Especially backlist novels by long-established authors. Online, almost anything is available.


Janice So far, I have, but it looks like that there are certain books I can't get otherwise....oh, well. Have a great day.


Margaret Carter I don't know how I'd get along without it. :)


Janice Happy New Year, and I may join Amazon, in 2018.


Margaret Carter As I mentioned, they're not likely to be in used-book stores (except maybe the Harlequin novel, EMBRACING DARKNESS), but there are plenty on Amazon.


Janice Thank you much. I'll try it, and I make check some of the used bookstores. Have a great day.


Margaret Carter Alas, quite a few of my books are presently in limbo because two publishers closed. If you like "good guy vampires," I hope you might like my "Vanishing Breed" vampire universe. Best one to start with is DARK CHANGELING:

Here's the publisher that's rereleasing many of the books. The newest, CRIMSON DREAMS, is a vampire romance:

You won't find my books in actual bookstores, as they are all e-books; they were also released in print, but with the new publisher not having put them back into paperback yet, that's not an option now -- except that you might find used trade paperbacks online, but not in bookstores.

Amazon has lots of used copies of my one Harlequin vampire romance, EMBRACING DARKNESS.

Janice I expect I will, as I love books about good guy/good gal shifters I guess I'll have to special order them. I don't recall seeing the in Barnes & Noble, which is the only non-used bookstore I've been able to get to lately. Have a great day.


Margaret Carter Thanks, I hope you will like some of them.


Janice Thank you for friending me. I haven't yet read any of your books, but I've been quite curious. Have a great day.
