What were the origins of the literary vampire — tall, dark, aristocratic?Which fictional vampire first sported fangs? How did the vampire morph from peasant superstition to an aristocratic, mass media star? Who were the real-life inspirations? The answers are found in this collection of male vampire stories from the early 1700s to the mid-1800s…the long-forgotten vampires who set the stage for Count Dracula.
