Like it or not, of course there is a link between the acts of vampire killers and cannibalism. From an alimentary, from an ethical and from a moral point of view, there seems to be no essential distinction between the drinking of human blood and the consumption of human flesh. Sufficient reason for us to add another modest section to our library.

Ronald Holmes :

"The Legend of Sawney Bean" [1975]

Mews Books, London, UK, 1976 - pp.142

Everything there is to know about the (probably fictional, thank God) Mr. Bean and his infamous Scottish clan of flesh eaters.

Henner Kotte & Christian Lunzer :

"Mörder, Monster, Menschenfresser - Kannibalen und ihre Opfer" [2004]

Verlag Carl Ueberreuter, Vienna, Austria, 2004 - pp.208
ISBN: 3 8000 3922 2

Informative book that gives plenty of unpleasant reading, which may not be surprising in view of the subject.

Moira Martingale :

"Cannibal Killers - the history of impossible murders" [1993]

Carroll & Graf, New York, USA, 1994 - pp.192
ISBN: 0 7867 0096 3

Everything you never wanted to know about cannibalism. Lots and lots of different revolting cases. Extremely unpleasant reading. The facts in this book should be enough to turn most people into convinced vegetarians.

Nicos Nicolaïdis :

"La Théophagie - Oralité primaire et métaphorique" [1988]

Dunod, Paris, France, 1988 - pp.154
ISBN: 2 04 018709 X

A rather interesting study. Everything about the psychosexual backgrounds of Theophagy (or the symbolical act of eating God), from cannibalism and the mythology of the Ancient Greeks all the way to the Eucharist.

William B. Seabrook :

"Jungle Ways" [1931]

George G. Harrap, London, UK, 1931 - pp.316

This Seabrook book features a special chapter about "cannibals".

Reay Tannahill :

"Flesh & Blood - A history of the Cannibal Complex" [1975]

Hamish Hamilton, London, UK, 1975 - pp.210

Roland Villeneuve :

"Le Cannibalisme - Mesures et démesures de l'anthropophagie" [1973]

Editions Gerard & Co, Verviers, Belgium, 1973 - pp.188
