About this product
- DescriptionMustering his extensive experience on the scene of the world's richest source of vampire lore, Transylvania, historian and author Istvan Pivarcsi seeks to peel away the effects of popular culture and set the record straight in this essential reference to vampire history. Just a Bite answers all of readers' most pressing questions, such as: How did vampire legends emerge? Who was the real Vlad the Impaler? How did vampire-related oral traditions evolve? Includes an extensive two-part appendix comprising a comprehensive glossary of vampire terms.
- Author BiographyIstvan Pivarcsi is the author of twenty-two books in his native Hungary on a wide range of subjects, including short histories of witchcraft and of cannibalism, historical travelogues, and a history of political assassinations. His works are informed by his twenty-five years as a teacher of history at the college and high school levels, and his twenty years as a tour guide throughout Europe. <i>Just a Bite</i> was inspired by Pivarcsi's research into the customs, folklore, and mythology of various ethnic groups in and around Hungary in particular, Transylvania, where he has spent many years leading tour groups on excursions to the very castles and villages connected with the historical figures behind such classic works as Bram Stoker's <i>Dracula</i>. He lives in Budapest.
