Our MORBID FASCINATION with the Undead Continues

A Morbid Fascination was the latest chapbook in the series, released in October 2010:

"A Morbid Fascination" by Series Editor Tom English
(1824) "The Adventure of the German Student" by Washington Irving (the FIRST vampire tale by an American writer.);
(1827-28) "The Skeleton Count" by Elizabeth Grey (FIRST published vampire tale written by a woman!);
(1830) "Blood Brothers" by Sir Walter Scott (a cool Norse legend that ties into vampirism);
(1833) "The Vampire Bride" by Henry Liddell (This long poem was the basis for Tim Burton's animated filmThe Corpse Bride.)
