Books about real vampires

I came across a good amount of vampire-themed books during the research phase of Vampirist: A book about real vampires. The books I read covered everything between cult-like organizations and bloodthirsty murderers to seemingly ordinary people who did their best to survive in our world. In this entry, I would like to share some of them with you.
