        Anthony Masters was a writer, educator and humanitarian of exceptional gifts and prodigious energy He was, in the parlance of his spiritual ancestors, the ancient mariners, that rare voyager as gracious as a trade wind and as dependable as an anchor.He leaves 11 works of adult fiction notably, Conquering Heroes 1969 , Red Ice 1986, with Nicholas Barker , The Men 1997 , The Good and Faithful Servant 1999 and Lifers 2001 and was in the process of completing another, Dark Bridges, which he thought would be his best Many of these works carry deep insights into social problems that he gained, over four decades, by helping the socially excluded, be it by running soup kitchens for drug addicts or by campaigning for the civic rights of gypsies and other ethnic minorities.His non fiction output was typically eclectic It ranged from the biographies of such diverse personalities as Hannah Senesh The Summer that Bled, 1972 , Mikhail Bakunin Bakunin the father of anarchism, 1974 , Nancy Astor Nancy Astor a life, 1981 and the British secret service chief immortalised by Ian Fleming in his James Bond books The Man Who Was M the life of Maxwell Knight, 1984 , to a history of the notorious asylum Bedlam Bedlam, 1977.

    2. Disappointing! I really had high hopes for this book but as I made my way through it I kept getting the odd feeling that I'd read this all before. Then it struck me. I had.Caveat Emptor. Significant portions of this book are directly lifted out of Montague Summers' books "The Vampire: His Kith and Kin" and its follow-up "The Vampire in Europe". In Anthony Masters' brief introduction he thanks the late Summers whose works were a "constant source of help and stimulation". Clearly, they were much, [...]


    3. Fascinating from the start. Masters studies the vampire in varying legends from around the world, comparing likenesses and rationalisations. It covers all aspects from human blood sacrifices to the dead rising from their graves. The vampire in history is a very different creature from the one we are used to from Hollywood and television. It has changed even more so since the publication of this book.If you're looking to read more about the soulful vampires of Buffy or Twilight, this book isn't f [...]
