This anthology is the definitive collection of classic/early vampire fiction. It is broken into three sections: the first is for classic vampire stories, the second is dedicated to psychic vampirism, and the last contains a few stories which are frequently listed as vampire stories, but are not actually about vampires. There are a total of 18 stories, plus two appendices.

The stories contain the original illustrations from their first publications, and there are three of the editor's original photographs at the section breaks. There is also a clickable table of contents for easy navigation through the text.

The first appendix details a few select cases of real life vampires that may have served as inspiration for many of the stories within the anthology. The second appendix, Sacred Blood, is an essay about the sacredness of blood throughout history and the major world religions.
