Complete Idiot's Guide to Vampires Summary

Complete Idiot's Guide to Vampires by Jay Stevenson

Sexy, subtle, mysterious, powerful, pathetic, terrifying, enticing -- the vampire profile is constantly shifting but continues to fascinate both because of its human and inhuman qualities. The Vampire Book, published in 1999, lists hundreds of fiction and nonfiction books on vampires, dozens of vampire societies, and more than 50 vampire Web sites. Thanks to Anne Rice and others, vampires are always hot!
