3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting & unnusual, 18 April 2008
I'd definately recommend this book to anyone interested in the Highgate Vampire. It's a slim booklet but is an interesting read of an unnusual case in Londons Highgate Cemetery.

Reading Sean Manchesters Highgate Vampire aswell, these are two very interesting perspectives of a mysterious & haunting case. In reading both these authors understand that David Farrant is a wiccan (though some of his photos may seem alittle contradictory) & that Sean Manchester is a bishop coming from a more christian perspective.

David Farrant in his book relates his investigation of a malevolent psychic entity while Sean Manchester his experience of a living or undead vampire. There's some antagonism between the two authors, Farrant suggesting a living vampire is delusive & perhaps inspired by fiction.

I'd recommend Vampires by Konstantinos if you're interested in further reading, also Montague Summers is an authority on vampire lore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply haunting case., 15 May 2006
I recommend everyone interested in vampires to read this book. You'll be looking for a crucifix to keep around (maybe even two if you're like me!)and your lamp will probably be staying on all night for a while aswell.

Bishop Sean Manchester has more than the credentials of a true vampirologist and let's face it if the Highgate Vampire is only one case in our history we certainly need his invaluable knowledge and experience to deal with them. There are dark worshippers in our society. Their black magic in & around the cemetery being very significant to the case of the Highgate Vampire.

After reading this you'll have those doubts but there's something about truth being told, no matter how it's spoken or communicated that rings true. It just does'nt let you go.

For further reading I'd recommend Beyond the Highgate Vampire by David Farrant. For an in depth study of vampire lore the books of Montague Summers.
