A People Bewitched

by Owen Davies

The belief in witchcraft and magic was widespread in nineteenth-century Somerset. Witches were blamed for causing the ill health and death of people and their animals. Those accused of witchcraft often found themselves being ostracised and beaten by their neighbours.

Astrologers and fortune-tellers were also widely consulted.This ebook is a fascinating exploration of the lives of all those who were caught up in the world of magic - witches and their victims, and occult practitioners and their clients. It will appeal to anyone with a general interest in witchcraft, rural history, folklore or the history of Somerset.

Dracula

by Bram Stoker Tina Rath

An eBook edition of Bram Stoker's classic novel Dracula with a new extended introduction on vampire myths and legends by leading vampire expert Dr Tina Rath. The introduction explores the development of Vampire myths and legends from early sixteenth-century stories to the current teenage vampire obsession evinced by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Twilight series of books and films.From Arnold Paul, an allegedly real vampire of the sixteenth-century, to Lord Byron's physician Dr John Polidori who created the vampire Lord Ruthven, to Camilla, Brunhilda and Varney, who all made their contributions to our picture of the vampire, the picture was completed by Dracula when it was published in 1897. Tina Rath explores our impressions of vampires throughout the ages in books, on stage and on screen, as well discussing the origins of Bram Stoker's Dracula.Dracula is probably the best-known, least-read horror novel in the English (or possibly any other) language. Say 'Dracula' and we all know what we mean: the handsome Master Vampire with sleek dark hair forming a widow's peak on his forehead, a black cloak, possibly lined with red silk, over faultless evening dress, fangs and photophobia. What we will almost certainly not visualise is Stoker's vision of Dracula. Tina explains why.
