Read full description of the books:
Vampires exist. And in every culture with a legend about bloodsuckers that rise from the grave to prey upon the living, there are rules and rituals for how to destroy them. How to Kill a Vampire is the first book to focus specifically on all known ways to prevent vampirism, protect oneself against attacks, and ultimately how to destroy the undead, as documented in folklore as well as horror film, TV, and books.
Covering everything from obscure legends to contemporary blockbusters, Ladouceur’s unique approach to vampires traces the evolution of how to kill the fictional creatures and celebrates the most important slayers.
In exploring how and why we create these monsters and the increasingly complex ways in which we destroy them, the book not only serves as a handy guide to the history and modern role of the vampire, it reveals much about the changing nature of human fears.

Read information about the authorI am a reader and a writer intrigued and passionate about the dark side of culture.
As a professional journalist I've written about vampires and horror, music and the arts for newspapers, websites and magazines, and worked in film, radio and TV. My first book, Encyclopedia Gothica, got nominated for a World Goth Day Author award alongside Stephen King and Neil Gaiman, who tweeted at me that I should have won. That was pretty great. My second book, How to Kill a Vampire: Fangs in Folklore, Film and Fiction, is out now from ECW Press.
I like arcane words, dead things, asking and answering questions.
