A Clutch of Vampires - cover

A Clutch Of Vampires
McNally
1974

Submitter: We recently went through a remodel that meant for a LOT of weeding. This lovely book was among the ones to go. My coworkers, knowing I love (non-sparkling) vampires right away handed it to me. It’s perfect for my personal library, but not a public one. Besides the yellow pages and black and white pictures, there’s just been a lot more written about vampires in fiction, folklore, and even science. With the latter my favorites are “Vampires, Burial, And Death” by Paul Barber and “Vampire Forensics” by Mark Jenkins.

Holly: Vampires did become trendy for a while there, between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight. In my library, vampire fiction is still pretty popular. I even came across one called “Amish Vampires in Space.” A first I thought maybe people who are into the more classic idea of vampires would actually go for “A Clutch of Vampires,” but Submitter him/herself seems to fall into that category and is calling it out. So, update your vampire books, everyone!
