Real Vampires?

Last night I introduced my fiancé to the interesting world of Blood Copy and the True Blood viral campaign. He won’t play Mobsters with me, but he did think that the campaign was pretty interesting. I also showed him a couple of sites about/for sanguinarians, psi-vamps, and vampyre lifestylers.

People who are role-playing and people who actually think they are vampires are posting a lot on the BloodCopy website. A few people who are involved in real covens have actually expressed concern/annoyance over BloodCopy and Tru:Blood. It is getting pretty interesting.

If anyone is interested here are a view links:

Vampire Notes posted some interesting links the other day too. To see the blog entry go here… otherwise, here are the links

By Light Unseen Media - "By Light Unseen Media will present the best of quality fiction and non-fiction on the theme of vampires and vampirism. We will offer fictional works with original imagination and style, as well as non-fiction of academic caliber."

Broadsheet – publication of Broad Universe that promotes women writers of paranormal, horror, and sci-fi fiction.

And Genre of the Month– July is Vampire Month

Also, for full texts of classic vampire stories: Vampyre by John Polidori; Feast of Blood/ Varney the Vampyre by James Malcolm Rymer; Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu; Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker: Dracula by Bram Stoker, and from the lunatic fringe comes The Vampire: His Kith and Kin by the eccentric clergyman Montague Summers.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but I am interested to see what they have for Varney the Vampyre. I have been looking everywhere for it and the only place I have found the full edition is on amazon for over 30 bucks.
