The vampires, werewolves, faeries, and other supernatural creatures that call Bon Temps, Louisiana home aren't universally accepted around town. Sweet-talking, bible-thumping Steve Newlin is their self-appointed nemesis. In his demented field guide, Steve has recorded all he knows about these Creatures of Satan, and that's a lot: their strengths, their weaknesses, their bylaws, and, of course, how to kill them. Sadly for Steve—but luckily for True Blood fans everywhere—his journal was stolen by Fangtasia vampires Pam and Eric, who have defaced it in a most disrespectful and snarky manner. A cunningly produced facsimile, and a hilarious read, The Field Guide to Vampires is packed with untold insight into our favorite TV characters, along with photos, letters, postcards, handwritten notes, and Steve's own idle doodles in a scrapbook that perfectly captures the tongue-in-cheek camp that makes True Blood the most widely watched show on HBO.
