Journal of a Vampire Hunter

Ever wondered what a blog that reads like a cross between David J. Schow's "A Week in the Unlife" (1991) and John Carpenter's Vampires (1998) would be like?

Well, wonder no further!

I present you with Dagmar Krauss, Vampyr Hunter!

Its "About Me" gives the lowdown:

I am a vampyr hunter. Trust me; it sounds a lot cooler than it really is.

I have decided to keep this blog because, well, dusty diaries are passé.

Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated for a while. Its most recent entry, "Disavowed?", begins with an ominous message from our hero:

Well, I haven't heard from the Guild in weeks, and I'd like to know what the fuck is going on. Last communication I had from them was right before they stuck me in the fucking hospital. I've still got my phone, and it still works, so they haven't cut me off completely yet, but they did leave me stuck with the hospital bill.

Read it with a pinch of salt.

No Need for Clicks

My previous entry gave mention to Andrew M. Boylan's blog, Taliesin Meets the Vampires.

But did you know it's also available in hardcopy?

Andrew broke the news in "Taliesin Meets the Vampires - Volume 1":

The blog as a book! Announcing the collected words from the blog, spanning the period March 5th 2006 up until 20th January 2007.

It's currently selling for US $29.02 from Lulu. Do yourself a favour, and buy a copy today!

Just a Quick One

Welcome to the inaugural "diary" entry of an amateur vampirologist!

I'll go into that title a bit more, at a later time.

But for now, I can tell you that the purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts and resources on things vampiric. It was largely inspired by Niels K. Petersen's brilliant Magia Posthuma, Andrew M. Boylan's comprehensive Taliesin Meets the Vampires, Curt Purcell's wonderful The Groovy Age of Horror and the layout of The Mystery of the Haunted Vampire.

I highly recommend you give each one a read.
