Bibliography for Whistling Past the Graveyard

Slide01I’m off to debut a new lecture called Whistling Past the Graveyard at StokerCon on the Queen Mary this morning.  It’s a collection of stories about ghosts, vampires, and the devil — and the graveyards they roam.

I put together a bibliography of books that inspired me in my research, but I thought others might find it interesting:
