Real Vampires, Night Stalkers and Creatures from the Darkside (Paperback) BY Brad Steiger (Author)

This great new book is soon to be released it has already become the #1 Bestseller (See Top 100 Occultism Bestsellers) at Tower Books



Availability: Pre-Order: This Paperback is scheduled to be released on September 1, 2009. A chilling chronicle of the often ignored history of vampirism as it has surfaced repeatedly in news articles, historical accounts, and first person interviews, this shocking account of occultist rituals and the inhuman forces that influence them shines a light on the horrifying truth. Revealing that real vampires are not immortal, do not have fangs or sleep in coffins, and have no fear of sunlight or crucifixes, the examination dispels many myths but also confirms the truth behind several traits of real vampires, such as the insatiable thirst for blood and the dream of an eternal soul. Complete with 30 spine-tingling tales of the hideous wraiths and creatures that lurk in shadow, this fascinating collection includes the stories of the Mexican prostitute who mesmerized an entire village, convincing them she was an Incan goddess who required human sacrifice for her magic; the three teenagers who left a trail across the South as they conducted blood-drinking rituals with animals; and the mysterious Lady in Black who draws psychic energy from men who dare approach her as she wanders through city streets and parks.

Cold Spots: Rotherwood Mansion -When most folks think of the proverbial "Haunted House," they picture an enormous structure out on a lonely hill, filled with one sort of ghost or another.
