Banshees Werewolves Vampires - (ed) Varla Ventura
A small collection of famous accounts and folklore on the supernatural creatures of the night.
Made up of a selection from authors such as Bram Stoker, William Butler Yeats, John William Polidari, and Elliot O'Donnell, this book is a highly readable book on the supernatural denizens of the fringes of humanity's imagination. Fiction and folktale from around the world combine with first-hand accounts of encounters, useful advice on how, for example, how to ward off vampires - "eat bread soaked in the blood of a vampire" - and with a supporting cast of changelings, pookas, bogles and goblins.
