YA-This reference source, which includes all one ever wanted to know about the undead, is a real find for devotees of the horror genre as well as readers enticed by the 1992 movie Bram Stoker's Dracula and current novels by Anne Rice and others. The alphabetic entries, which vary in length, relate to vampires in film, literature, folklore, poetry, art, medicine, religion, and comedy. The encyclopedia includes four appendixes: short stories, novels, a suggested reading list, and vampire societies and organizations with addresses and membership fees. All of this plus black-and-white photos from memorable movies and sets make for fascinating research and browsing.
