Something to get your teeth into...

This book provides an excellent selection of vampire tales. It is helpfully divided into six sections; The Classic Adventure Tale, The Psychological Vampire, The Science Fiction Vampire, The Non-Human Vampire, The Comic Vampire and The Heroic Vampire. Each of these is introduced by Leonard Wolf. I have found it particularly useful for my dissertation about the vampire in literature, but it would also be an enjoyable read for anyone who enjoys spooky stories!
