The first book to explore the origins of the vampire slayer “A fascinating comparison of the original vampire myths to their later literary transformations.” —Adam Morton, author of On Evil “From the Balkan Mountains to Beverly Hills, Bruce has mapped the vampire’s migration. There’s no better guide for the trek.” —Jan L. Perkowski, Professor, Slavic Department, University of Virginia, and author of Vampires of the Slavs and The Darkling: A Treatise on Slavic Vampirism “The vampire slayer is our protector, our hero, our Buffy. But how much do we really know about him—or her? Very little, it turns out, and Bruce McClelland shows us why: because the vampire slayer is an unsettling figure, almost as disturbing as the evil she is set to destroy. Prepare to be frightened . . . and enlightened.” —Corey Robin, author of Fear: The History of a Political Idea “What is unique about this book is that it is the first of its kind to focus on the vampire hunter, rather than the vampire. As such, it makes a significant contribution to the field. This book will appeal to scholars and researchers of folklore, as well as anyone interested in the literature and popular culture of the vampire.” —Elizabeth Miller, author of Dracula and A Dracula Handbook “Shades of Van Helsing! Vampirologist extraordinaire Bruce McClelland has managed that rarest of feats: developing a radically new and thoroughly enlightening perspective on a topic of eternal fascination. Ranging from the icons of popular culture to previously overlooked details of Balkan and Slavic history and folk practice, he has rethought the borders of life and death, good and evil, saint and sinner, vampires and their slayers. Excellent scholarship, and a story that never flags.” —Bruce Lincoln, Caroline E. Haskell Professor of History of Religions, University of Chicago, and author of Theorizing Myth: Narrative, Ideology, and Scholarship,Authority: Construction and Corrosion, and Death, War, and Sacrifice: Studies in Ideology and Practice

Life was never going to be easy for Joe Tubbs. Without a father, his role model was his mother, a promiscuous addict who died of an overdose when he was just fifteen. The Hollywood dream kept his fragile mind together, but ridicule and rejection from the industry he loved turned disappointment to anger and rage. When he finally hit on a brilliant idea for a film no one in L.A. would look at his script. Alone and desperate for recognition, Joe decided to bring his script to life and take it to the people. Within days, his chilling deeds spread fear and panic in the city. Suddenly, Joe had a lead role that everyone was talking about. He was finally living the dream. With no leads, bodies piling up and pressure from City Hall mounting, Detective Dan Scott needed all the help he could get. But would a theory put together by small town investigative journalist Leigh Turner help them find the man responsible for bringing terror to the streets of L.A.? Zodiac, The Sunset Strip Killers, The Freeway Killer, The Vampire of Sacramento and The Gallego Sex Slave Killers were just a few of the many evil men and women to plague the Golden State over the last fifty years. Dan knew that California was no stranger to serial killers, and if Leigh Turner was right, another one was already making headlines. But this one was different.

The Zone of Danger��(P), is a heavy metal air pollution, climate change, and environmental law book. The subject matter is toxic mercury amalgam vapor, ecology, and environmentalism. The Zone of Danger��(P), tells the saga of the damage done to the environment, and in particular the "Immediate Danger To Human Life and Health, "IDLH", by the burning of the toxic mercury amalgam in dental fillings, which is against the law in almost every state, particularly when those dental fillings are in the teeth of the deceased, during the estimated 1.5 million cremations a year, which release toxic mercury amalgam vapor, through the scrubberless stacks, of the estimated 2000 crematorium, in the U.S., owned, and operated, by the estimated $15 Billion Dollar a year "Death Enterprise", directly into the environment, to drift for thousands of miles from the U.S. to the E.U., to stay for an estimated 444 years in the environment, and in the person for an estimated 36 years. Toxic mercury amalgam vapor is a highly toxic, persistent, bioaccumulative, neurotoxin, which can cause, " delayed fetal development, Autism, ADHD, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Arthritis, fibromyalgia, dementia, mental illness, insomnia, cancers, organ failure, etc.", which can lead to death. Dean Fisher, Director of the University of California, Donated Bodies Program, and a board member of CANA, stated that, when you burn a body, with toxic mercury amalgam in dental fillings, which is against the law in almost every state, the toxic mercury amalgam vaporizes, and escapes directly, into the atmosphere, as toxic mercury amalgam vapor, through the scrubberless stacks of crematorium, to drift for thousands of miles, from the U.S. to the E.U., to remain for an estimated 444 years in the environment, and an estimated 36 years in the person. The respected medical journal, The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Heath, in their October 17, 2017 issue, attempted to pull together W.H.O. data, on air pollution, and stated, for the first time, that the neurological damage from heavy metal air pollution like, mercury amalgam vapor, kills more people than all the wars, famine, illnesses, pestilence, etc., an estimated, 12.5 million people a year, in the U.S., costing an estimated $4.6 trillion in losses a year, an estimated 6.2% of the worldwide GDP. Let's look at our future, our children. Toxic mercury amalgam vapor, sits in the central nervous system, and damages kid's brains. The most vulnerable of these children, are the one's in poverty, and therefore the most affected, because most of them are housed, in, or near, the estimated 2000 crematorium, located in, or near the small, or large, inner cities, across the U.S., such as Syracuse, New York.

From the introduction to the new edition: “I’ll tell you where I went wrong. The faucet in the kitchen always becomes the reality we believe, and the periodic droughts, one of which for much of the nineties savaged the West, remain a fantasy. This happens each and every day as the water roars from the faucet and the skies remain dangerously blue.” —Charles Bowden In the quarter-century since his first book, Killing the Hidden Waters, was published in 1977, Charles Bowden has become one of the premier writers on the American environment, rousing a generation of readers to both the wonder and the tragedy of humanity’s relationship with the land. Revisiting his earliest work with a new introduction, “What I Learned Watching the Wells Go Down,” Bowden looks back at his first effort to awaken people to the costs and limits of using natural resources through a simple and obvious example—water. He drives home the point that years of droughts, rationing, and even water wars have done nothing to slake the insatiable consumption of water in the American West. Even more timely now than in 1977, Killing the Hidden Waters remains, in Edward Abbey’s words, “the best all-around summary I’ve read yet, anywhere, of how our greed-driven, ever-expanding urban-industrial empire is consuming, wasting, poisoning, and destroying not only the resource basis of its own existence, but also the vital, sustaining basis of life everywhere.”
