About the Author

Mary Y. Hallab is Professor Emerita of English Literature at the University of Central Missouri.


"Hallab offers enough new insights to keep even jaded, well-read scholars interested, and her wealth of examples and obvious enthusiasm for the subject will likely entice even readers with only a passing interest in the subject. It is certainly a worthy addition to any library." - Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts "Hallab's book is a fascinating read that is expansive and informative without ever being boring. On top of that, she has a great sense of humor (especially when it comes to religion) that is a welcome ingredient to such an academically engaged text. Fans of the horror genre in general or vampires in particularly [sic] would do well to pick this one up." - Pop Theology "...timely and interesting ... For the influx of new students schooled in the pop-cultural sexuality of the contemporary vampire, Hallab ups-the-ante beyond fashion and fandom, insisting there are more profound ways to hang out with the damned." - Journal of American Culture "Vampire God offers a wide-ranging introduction for students and academics seeking a concise review of canonical and scholarly vampire literature ... [and] offers an expansive survey of predominant themes and preoccupations of vampire literature over time that is both lively and accessible." - Religion and the Arts "Among the numerous studies published about the vampire in film and fiction, I would certainly rank Hallab's Vampire God at the top. She has mastered the ability to blend her discussion with both interesting detail and larger social significance-a difficult balancing act indeed, and one that few have accomplished in cultural studies." - Gary Hoppenstand, editor of The Journal of Popular Culture "Compared with most academic books, Vampire God is a delight to read. Hallab brings a wry sense of humor to her book-and humor is something, it seems to me, lacking in most critical works. Within the limited focus of vampire lore and literature, Hallab covers a lot of ground, and she covers it superbly." - Eric Miles Williamson, author of Oakland, Jack London, and Me
