"This book is EXACTLY the kind of inspirational material I love to dig into when I write my own stories. Bane serves up a delicious mix of vampires, demons, spooks, and ghouls that revels in the phenomenon of the vampire in folklore across the entire spectrum of humanity. This one is going on my keeper shelf. It is a veritable gold mine of inspiration. No one who enjoys reading, writing, or watching supernatural fiction should pass up a chance to read this book."

"Finally a vampire reference that is worthy enough to sit on my bookshelf next to the works of Montague Summers."
