Description
 
According to legend, Vlad the Impaler or Dracula, impaled his victims, then sat at a table mopping up their blood from his plate; later he hung the still alive bodies of opposing forces on a field of stakes. The author goes backwards in time from the celluloid Count of Hammer & Universal Studios to the literary creations of Bram Stoker, Sheridan le Fanu & John Polidori. Before that, the folklore of Europe carries tales of blood-sucking ghouls who sleep in their coffins by day & terrorized remote villages by night. This book looks at Vlad -- the Impaler; the Renaissance prince whose reputation was destroyed by his enemies; the hero who welded Wallachia into a fighting & defiant nation-state; & the defeated martyr, captured by the Hungarian king Corvinus.
