"More than 600 entries presented in this encyclopedia provide a comprehensive range of vampires, werewolves, and related creatures. Topics covered include the supernatural and macabre aspects of the undead, superstitions about them and defenses against them from a wide range of cultures and beliefs, supposed "true" historical accounts of such beasts, and the depiction of these creatures in the arts, entertainment, and pop culture." "Also covered are major writers and researchers and their contributions to fact and fiction, as well as famous performers most closely associated with vampires (Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi) and werewolves (Lon Chaney Jr.). Featuring more than 100 illustrations, The Encyclopedia of Vampires, Werewolves, and Other Monsters is an authoritative reference and an indispensable resource for those who wish to learn more about these mysterious beings and their long and varied histories."--BOOK JACKET.
