Published 1995 496 pages. I liked this book a lot for three main reasons. Firstly because it has some first rate vampire short stories in it. Thirdly because he resisted selecting the most obvious stories and has chosen more unusual or rarer tales.

A story Published in 1828, yet the way it's written you wind up rooting for the Vampire over the Villagers.

"The Pale Lady" is also interesting, late 1840s yet ti is a vampire story revolving around a Love Triangle. Specifically anticipates "The Vampire Diaries" as a Sibling Triangle.

"A True Story of a Vampire" can be read for free online, so I can't call it a reason alone to buy the volume, but it is worth having as it's seemingly the first Psychic Vampire.

Haining has put together a collection tracing the roots of the vampire story, including some archival recovery of some work that has turned out to be quite interesting.

His introductions to the pieces are quite useful and informative.

The second part of the book traces the vampire through film, and has more in the way of excerpt pieces than stories.

The third then goes back to some short stories by some more 'modern' writers in general, and their takes on some various vampire types.

A solid book for those interested in vampire fiction, or vampires in general.
