Leading from my own recommendations, this is the second episode of “Vampire Library”—a series of “guest posts from other writers involved in the vampire field, discussing books they’d recommend” to further studies of the genre.
I’m kicking myself for omitting another must-get book to the “Building a Vampire Library” (Hogg 2013) list: Michael E. Bell’s Food for the Dead: On the Trail of New England’s Vampires (2001). Why’d I omit it?
In 2005, I created an Amazon Listmania! called “The Complete Vampirologist’s Library“—an ambitious title for a list 13 books. Nonetheless, I’d still recommend them—even though my tastes have shifted onto works with greater academic emphasis.
