Produktbeschreibungen

Synopsis

This is the biggest book on vampires ever published! Now it is available in a chunky paperback edition! Both fictional and factual accounts reveal the eerie and fascinating world of the undead. Noted vampire authority and author, David J. Skal adds a running commentary on the evolution of the vampire mystique in folklore, literature and popular culture. Nearly 600 pages reveal bloodcurdling vampire tales, ranging from literary classics to pulp magazine serials to actual historical accounts. One column of every page is devoted to a running narrative covering the history, appeal and cultural significance of vampires - making it a veritable encyclopedia as well as an anthology.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

David J. Skal’s many books include Hollywood Gothic, The Monster Show, Screams of Reason, and, with Elias Savada, Dark Carnival: The Secret World of Tod Browning. With Nina Auerbach, he is co-editor of the Norton Critical Edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. He lives in Glendale, California.

HASH(0x97eec63c) von 5 Sternen the only thing missing is the rest of dracula... 9. November 2004
Von eric warren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
i recommend this book highly to anyone who has an interest in vampires. not only does it contain stories from classic gothic styling to present, the side bars provide very interesting information about vampires in general and the background of the stories and authors. this is like getting a well resarched "the vampire book" and a compilation of the greatest vampire stories ever written. aslo contains complete listing of vampire literature and cinema with author, year of publish or cinematic release. get this book. for the size and quality of the contents, the under $30 pricetag is well worth it.

HASH(0x97ef1cc0) von 5 Sternen Love Vampires? 22. August 2011
Von Sheri Newton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Vampires: Encounters with the Undead by David J. Skal is a large collection of vampire stories that have been collected over two centuries. The commentary by the editor includes additional information about the stories and vampires in general. It really makes you think about the myth and legends behind all of these tales.

This is a well written and compiled anthology of vampire stories. The stories included in this book are the best of the best when it comes to vampire tales. Having them all in one book is handy for late night reading. You could read it all in a weekend, or prolong it into reading one section each night, or at whatever pace you want to enjoy it at.

Aside from the actual vampire tales, I really enjoyed reading the editor's commentary and information about vampires that he researched. Even if you think you know everything about vampires, there is sure to be information included in the sidebars that you probably didn't know or haven't seen before.

If you have a fascination with vampires or just want to take a walk into the nightlife of the vampire lifestyle, this is seriously a must have book for you. I highly recommend it and am quite certain that you would also enjoy it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Vampires: Encounters with the Undead, Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

HASH(0x99ec5fe4) von 5 Sternen Great for What It Includes, but Format Will Give You Headaches 29. Januar 2009
Von Mark Alfred - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book, "edited and with comentary by David J Skal," is pretty good. Here's my "official" review...

You can't fault Mr Skal for his selection of stuff -- fiction, nonfiction, excerpts from longer works. All that material is on-target and really a wonderful portmanteau of Vampirian lore.

But, despite the tagline on the cover, "edited and with commentary," the commentary is, at times, rather thin gruel.

I would have hoped for commentary specific to the selections, more like annotations, or explanations of this or that thing that appears in the story or article. Instead, in the sidebars, we often have excerpts of other stories that were published at the same time as Story X, or interminable lists of decades of vampire movies or lists of vampire books, etc.

The amount of actual commentary, compared to this "padding," is a small percentage.

It's also ironic that, in the acknowledgements, Mr Skal thanks his copy editor. Now, nobody's perfect, but in this book I came across a few dozens of simple misspellings, letters dropped from words, etc; paragraph indents at the tops of pages when we were continuing a sentence started the previous page; and so on.

And what's with the sudden change in type size for just one word, or one line? This happens more in the sidebars than in the main text, but for some of us it's kind of jarring.

These little irritants keep this book from being A-Number-One, for me at least. If these things don't bug you, then run -- do not walk -- to dive into this anthology.
