After providing an introduction to divination and cartomancy, Auger offers detailed descriptions and analyses of the roles that cartomancy and Tarot cards play in films.

The Vampire Tarot ties the tales and mythic figures associated with the vampire legend to the equally iconographic figures and forms of the tarot. This book explores the history of the vampire starting with Bram Stoker's classic 1897 novel, Dracula, as well as those writings that inspired Stoker and the vampire lore that derived from it. Stoker and his most famous work were both closely tied to the classic Rider-Waite-Coleman tarot. Now, author-illustrator Robert M. Place brings these two mythic traditions together with this extensively researched book that guides the reader through the subtleties and parallels within The Vampire Tarot, providing a guide for getting the most out of reading. Sure to delight not only tarot devotees but the general fan of the vampire mythos as well.

The American Face of Edgar Allan Poe

"The problem of Poe's place in American culture cannot be settled canonically, since, unlike the works of Melville or Hawthorne, Poe's texts have not been primarily transmitted through the schools. Indeed, at its most radical level, the failure of criticism to account for the remarkable diversity of Poe's influence leads one to question the utility of the canon itself as an instrument for the study of American culture."—from the Introduction The contributors to this volume share the conviction that Poe is central to current work on American culture—and that strictly theoretical approaches to Poe have become increasingly irrelevant. Aiming to transform his place in the American canon, they bring sophisticated theoretical awareness to bear on the particular historical, social, political, and economic circumstances of his literary career. Their essays offer new insights into the complex and unavoidable relations between traditionally literary issues and the broader aspects of a democratic mass culture. The contributors are Gillian Brown, Stanley Cavell, Eva Cherniavsky, Joan Dayan, Jonathan Elmer, John T. Irwin, Barbara Johnson, David Leverenz, Meredith L. McGill, Stephen Rachman, Louis A. Renza, Shawn Rosenheim, and Laura Saltz.

The creatures of the night haunt this deck with their strange and shadowy beauty. Here there are vampires, werewolves, ghouls and ghosts white ladies walking the corridors of ruined castles and phantoms dancing in the candlelight of echoing ballrooms. The images have an elegant and atmospheric style that's the essence of Gothic and Dark Victoriana. This s an ideal deck for shadow work - exploring the darker sides of the psyche. It's also beautiful enough to be used in a range of readings, revealing, as it does, both our dreams and our nightmares. The cards draw on familiar scenes from the great ghost and fantasy writers such as Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker, MR James and Mary Shelley. But the imagery is intuitive and powerful enough to be used entirely independently, with or without knowledge of the tales of 19th century Gothic. These are cards that show us that deep within our darker selves there is both wisdom and beauty.
