Sukru Meric, Gordon Jones, Orhan Ercem & Peter Thursfield :

Small but useful dictionary that has often come in handy.
Fatih Danaci :
"Korkunun Canavarlari" 
Kalkedon Yayincilik, Istanbul, Turkey, 2011 - pp.252
ISBN : 9786054511181
The title of the book translates into: Monsters of Horror. There are 10 different sections covering various icons of the horror spectrum. Ranging from Werewolves to Frankenstein to Vampires to Zombies et.al. Each section first examines the roots of the subject at hand and then moves on to a chronological study of the way it has been treated in cinema. Sadly, my knowledge of the Turkish language is minimal indeed. But I do know that the author is very serious about his writings. So in case you are lucky enough to read Turkish, better make sure that you don't miss out on this one !
Aylin Ünal :
"Giovanni Scognamillo / Ask ve Korku" 
Hayalet Yayinlari, Istanbul, Turkey, 2009 - pp.272
I have no problem admitting that Turkish is one of the many languages that I have never learned to speak or read. But this book is exceptional enough for me to create a special page for Turkish books. For a start, the book is about my good old friend Giovanni Scognamillo, who happens to be the world's greatest expert on Turkish cinema as well as an expert on vampirism. And last, but not least, the book has been written by another friend of mine, Aylin Ünal, who is an extremely talented young woman. If you do read Turkish, make sure to get yourself a copy.
Aylin Ünal, Fatih Danaci & Giovanni Scognamillo :
"Vampir Manifestolari" 
Marjinal Kitap, Istanbul, Turkey, 2011 - pp.304
A book written by three Turkish vampire experts. It seems to cover many aspects of vampires and vampirism: among other things there are vampire killers, vampires in literature, vampire music, and a large section on vampire films.
