For millennia vampires have lived among us: reanimated corpses feeding on the blood of the living. Down the centuries there have been countless vampire-fighting tips, but irrespective of whether these have come from professors or peasants, they have tended to be old wives' tales, based on mere superstition rather than fact. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive vampire-fighting guide for the twenty-first century: the habits and routines of vampires; how to tell if someone you know has become a vampire; effective protection against attack; setting traps; warding off a massed attack; clearing a devastated town; and much, much more. The guide confronts head-on the most terrifying situation of all - being bitten by a vampire - by providing numerous approaches, rooted in science, medicine and religion, for fending off the blood-suckers in good time. Vampires are to be found in every country in the world. With the human population anticipated to exceed 9 billion by 2050, conflict between humankind and vampires will become inevitable.
