This book presents the vampire as a truly international phenomenon, not restricted to the original folk character, the literary vampire (such as Dracula), or twentieth-century film versions. Instead, we move around the world and into the twenty-first century: reshaping the legend into a post-modern image that is psychologically and socially relevant while retaining elements of folklore mixed with a hint of science fiction. This book is intended for aficionados of folklore and mythology, as well as literary and film scholars, vampire devotees, and a more general audience interested in the supernatural.
