How and why did the vampire craze happen? This author was willing to do whatever it took to better understand it. He travelled across Transylvania on a tour hosted by Butch Patrick (a.k.a. Eddie Munster), sat through Las Vegas's only topless vampire revue, hung out with assorted shady characters, and spent hours in a coffin. This is a quest to understand the weird, offbeat world of vampires and the people who love them.
