Butler in My Inbox

Thanks to the sometimes-wonder that is Amazon e-mailed suggestions, I've been reminded (Monday, 15 February 2010 9:04:59 PM) of the upcoming release of Erik Butler's Metamorphoses of the Vampire in Literature and Film: Cultural Transformations in Europe, 1732-1933 on March 1.

I last mentioned it in "More Wishes".

The price is a little steep for a 238 pages (US $75), but at least we've now got a pretty little cover to look at.

Going by the title, it seems to be covering well-trod ground, however, the author's credentials as an "assistant professor of German Studies at Emory University, where he also teaches comparative literature and film" might elevate it above your average meandering into the genre.

Here's hoping!
