Varla Ventura, fan favorite on Huffington Post’s Weird News, frequent guest on Coast to Coast, and bestselling author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces a new Weiser Books Collection of forgotten crypto-classics. Magical Creatures is a hair-raising herd of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s affectionate and unerring eye for the fantastic.

The House of the Vampire was the first vampire novel to address the terrors of psychic vampires (non-bloodsuckers). The author, George Sylvester Viereck, was friends with Nikola Tesla (whose studies in the world of energy may have inspired the idea of psychic vampirism) and published a regular periodical, The Fatherland, to which Aliester Crowley was one of the many contributors.
