Vampires of the Slavs – Jan L. Perkowski

Vampires of the Slavs - Jan L. PerkowskiWhat a stunning book this is. Jan Perkowski has selected from various primary and secondary sources, narrowing the field to precisely those areas in which the original Slavic vampire was “born” in men’s minds, and shows the wealth of material available to those who seriously wish to research this dark area of human imagination.

The minds of men are always fertile ground for later speculation. Why, we think, did they think of such things? What was the rationale? What coloured their ideas? What birthed these thoughts?

This is a terrific resource, and I thoroughly recommend it be on the shelf of anyone who is interested in following up this fascinating subject. Well-written, well-supported, and well-chosen… an invaluable tool for clear thinking and a glimpse into the heart of the macabre.
