Troublesome Prices

Academic works in the field are often expensive, which prohibits them from garnering a wider readership than they should. One notable example’s David Keyworth’s Troublesome Corpses: Vampires & Revenants from Antiquity to the Present (2007).

It featured on my list of recommendations in “Building a Vampire Library” (2013). Amazon has a copy going for $180.72 (Amazon.com 2013). It’s a great book, but fuck paying that. That’s why you gotta shop around.

Desert Island Books, the company that published Troublesome, sells copies on eBay for £15.00 (about US$24.55). And yes, they ship worldwide. As of this writing, there are two available copies.

Troublesome Corpses_ Vampires and Revenants (book) 1905328303 _ eBay - 2013-11-30_10.22.33

Thanks go to Andy Boylan for providing the eBay tip-off on my Facebook group. He’s reviewed the book on his blog, too—”10 out of 10″ (Boylan 2013).

Incidentally, if you want to buy the book recommendations in “Building a Vampire Library”, I created a list for them on Amazon. Merry Christmas!
