    1. Wow, did this thing suck For some reason the guy seems to think that once in a while droning on in a purple vein is quite the ticket He s also rather irritatingly priggish in spots The blurb informs me he s a horror writer, although I had never heard of him yet I just found out that he wrote the story for Camera Obscura, one of the episodes of the Night Gallery Anyway, at one point he actually pauses to quote somebody else praising his work Unbelievable What a jackass.


    2. It s not the age that makes this a not very good book, it s the glaring mistakes Mr Copper makes He confuses the names and even genders of the various characters in the books and movies so badly it makes me wonder if he put any real research into anything.


    3. an interesting if a little outdated analysis on the vampire in its many incarnations in our cultures many fantastic and otherwise unknown works of vampiric lit are discussed here, and its worth owning if just for the list of referenced works and the index, as these would be invaluable to the serious hunter of vampire tales.


    4. I m not finding this all that interesting It s a commentary on historical literature on the subject which I wasnt expecting I m half way through and can happily put it down Whilst some aspects are interesting, there isnt enough to keep me going.
