Vampire Taxonomy: Identifying and Interacting with the Modern-Day…
They question those explanations that attribute Parliament's victory in to its overwhelming superiority in resources, and place their emphasis instead on the significance of strategy and tactics. It was the use to which resources were put, not the resources themselves, which explain why the war ended when it did. A Military History is based on extensive archival research and on close reading of the original texts.

Lists with This Book. Oct 30, Shesten rated it really liked it Shelves: Vampire Taxonomy was written to give us a practical, useful guide to vampires. With all of the different bloodlines thanks to the different evolutions of different sires, it became necessary for someone to compile a comprehensive guide for those of us with heartbeats.
Woerner has done just that. She presents us with physical identifiers, physical features, attire, habitat, unseen abilities, behavior, and what to do if approached for the different types of vampire: Romantic think Edward, Precis: She also addresses clan behavior, and how we can live safely in an undead world. Answers to questions like, "Can vampires fly? This cheeky guide is meant to be funny. Woerner doesn't think that all of your neighbors are vamps and doesn't try to make you paranoid.
It's just not that type of book. I found it to be a very interesting read, and laughed several times. This book would make a great gift to any lover of vampire fiction.
It even has a section on the Great Sparkle Debate. I loved the illustrations and really enjoyed the book. Just think, you could be at a party and be debating the vampires which I totally have done before and you could quash your fellow debater with one whip of this book. Imagine yourself saying, "But I have the authoritative text on vampire identification.

Get this one, it's great to have around! Die rasante Verbreitung von Vampiren ist geradezu erschreckend: Ansonsten sind immer die gleichen Referenzen zu finden: Dracula, Buffy, Twilight und so weiter. Was die Popkultur zu dem Thema zu bieten hat, muss man sich wirklich nicht noch einmal vorkauen lassen, immerhin lebt man mittendrin. In alten Zeiten gab es so viele Begegnungen mit Vampiren, die eigentlich keine waren. Was steckt da alles dahinter? So aber wird einiges angekratzt, nichts davon aber wirklich durchgehend beleuchtet.
Sie geht sehr bissig an das Thema heran und da kann ich nur sagen: Lassen Sie sich nur auf ihn ein, wenn Sie bereit sind, Ihr eigenes Leben praktisch komplett aufzugeben. Trotzdem bringt sie die Hauptelemente auf eine witzige Art und Weise auf den Punkt und das hebt dieses Vampirbuch doch wieder von anderen seiner Art ab, die letztlich nur Informationen zusammensammeln. Leider wiederholt sie die eine oder andere Information im Laufe des Buches, was aber nicht allzu oft vorkommt.
Sie stammen von Jochen Schievink und entsprechen ganz dem Stil, der auch auf dem Cover des Buches zu sehen ist: Was kann man gegen eine putzige, kleine Vampirfledermaus einzuwenden haben?
- Death and the Demon.
- The Icy Barber;
- The Palace and the Punks.
Lediglich die Tatsachen, dass es eher ein Anti-Vampirbuch und ziemlich witzig geschrieben ist, heben es aus der Masse hervor. Man sollte nur keine neuen Erkenntnisse erhoffen. Dec 08, Donna rated it it was amazing Shelves: What made this book stand out for me against all the other vampire guides out there was the fact that Meredith Woerner is a Lost Boys fan. When her publicist sent me Meredith's author blurb I pretty much went, "send me nao. I was hesitant, however, because of the mention of Twilight on the back of the book.
But lo, how happy I would become as I actually cracked the book to read. First and foremost, what I especially liked was how all the different vampire movies and books were What made this book stand out for me against all the other vampire guides out there was the fact that Meredith Woerner is a Lost Boys fan. First and foremost, what I especially liked was how all the different vampire movies and books were classified as different vampires. It didn't lump everything into one fang and give you general guidelines on what to do with them. Not only are there the Romantic, Villainous and Tragic vampires all three present in nearly every vampire story but there are different species and various types of evolution as well.
Actually, those more closely look like Predator. But you know what I'm talking about, right? Anyway, Woerner is thinking like how I've thought for over a decade, in varying species, not just one set of vampires, and I love that. They all exist simultaneously and, like humans, they adapt to their various lifestyles. Great minds think alike and all of that. Love number two, while Woerner was attempting to be impartial on the glittering aspect of certain vampires, I think through my rather clouded eyes that its fairly obvious that she's not keen to what she calls "The Sparkle Factor" - As of late, there has been great debate surrounding the sunlight factor and its effect on the epidermis of a vampire: So, do some vampires sparkle in the sun?
Because most pop culture myths have some basis in historical fact, it's a possibility. But in the end it's difficult to say. There are no ancient myths of glittering vampires, although we do know that some species of vamps can freely stroll about in the daytime. The stance on sparkle is going to have to remain in the air until more than one pop culture outlet can agree that vampires have mutated, evolved, or always retained the glimmering ability. AKA, only the Twitards actually believe that vampires sparkle interpretation mine.
Don't get me wrong.
