Wanted Undead or Alive

Learn when to stand your ground and when to run screaming for your life.

This is crazy.  It turns out that one of  the greatest legal bloggers on the interweb, Howard Bashman the author of How Appealing, is married to the co-author of a new book on vampire slayers.  Janice Gable Bashman is a vampire expert.  Who knew?  The books sounds awesome — it surveys vampire history and mythology; and provides information on how to kill vampires and/or prevent loved ones from turning into them.

The book deals with the struggle of good vs evil in world myth, literature, comics, film, pop culture and the real world. Everything from vampire slayers to paranormal investigators to FBI serial-killer profilers. It includes interviews with folks like Stan Lee, Mike Mignola, Peter Straub, Charlaine Harris and many more; and the book is fully illustrated by top horror, comics & fantasy artists.  [source]

Vampire Wire has an interview with the authors at this link.

Siouxsie thinks that this book will make for a great Halloween gift.  The book hit stores today, order it here.  Siouxsie did and you should too.

If the current vampire trend is making you worry about you and loved ones personal safety, then you might consider purchasing a vampire hunting kit to go along with your book.  In order to provide a public service to her readers, Siouxsie consulted with Dr. Godoried Edorta, a top expert on antique and modern vampire hunting techniques and kits.  He suggested the following links to vampire hunting kits.
