Ripped from today's headlines and mined from historical records, True Vampires invades the minds of real blood-sucking killers from Romania, Russia, France, Wales, Brazil, South Africa, the Kentucky hills, and the streets of Los Angeles. Part I, "The Undead Zone," traces the history of vampirism, from Jesus to Dracula to Vlad the Impaler. Part II, "Vampire Crime," describes gory historical events in grisly detail. Part III, "Interview with a Vampire," is a conversation between the author and an unindicted spokesvampire and his consort, who report on the lifestyle of vampire role-players as practiced today in New York City.

  • 'Covering every aspect of a darkly fascinating subject from myth and folklore to history and psychology, TRUE VAMPIRES is at its unnerving best in revealing the existence of the monsters among us: those real-life beings possessed by an unslakable thirst for human gore. Sondra London has produced a classic of the genre.' -Harold Schechter (BESTIAL, FIEND and DERANGED)

    'This is the ultimate insider's view of a ghastly subculture as real and as deadly as it is difficult for 'civilized' minds to conceive.' -Michael Newton
