Everything You Need to Know About Vampires

Munch's "The Vampire"
(Click for link)

Welcome to my site. Delve into the vampire's world here and hopefully you'll come away with a much greater appreciation for the vampire-- mythological demi-god, historical creature and allegorical figure for society's subconscious.

This site caters primarily to those people needing to research the vampire for books, papers and projects. What this site isn't is a place for people who are looking for "real" vampires. I am not a vampire and I don't know any. If you want to look for present-day "vampires", try The Vampire White Pages. They have bulletin boards and pen-pal services for those who are looking into the vampire sub-culture.

This site now over 8 years old!

My site has been reviewed by the magazine 'Bite Me'. They have given me a very favorable review. What else would you expect? *puffed up with pride* Bite Me

Here's what NBCi.com (formerly Snap.com) has to say about my site: "Everything You Need to Know About Vampires has distinguished itself as one of the most popular LiveDiectoy sites in its catgory." (Letter dtd. 11/14/00)


2/20/05 This site has been dead for a couple of years or more now, but I haven't been able to bring myself to get in here and say it. My hobbies have changed, I have a significant other now and just don't have time or the interest to update my webpage any longer. Yes, there are some pages that have no content as I never got around to putting up all of the information I wanted to. But, there is still a lot of information on her--probably more still than any other website.

But, who knows--after all, this is a vampire site. It may yet come back to life one day. I still have all of my notes, so I may get around to finishing it sometime. Until then, I will continue to enjoy my medieval reenacting (sans vampires and plagues).

I have removed my e-mail address as I donít have the time (heck, itís been so long, I donít remember enough to help anybody) to read e-mails. For those of you writing papers, you will find a link in those listed below with information for your footnotes/bibliography.

Good luck to you all.
