Vampire Journals on the Internet

In 1996, Benjamin H. LeBlanc published the first issue of the Internet Vampire Tribune Quarterly: De Natura Haeretica's Electronic Journal of Vampire Studies.

It's certainly the earliest example of an internet vampire journal that I've come across. I'm sure earlier attempts were made, however.

An obvious standout of the issue is its feature story, "The Anathematic Vampire: Concepts of Matter and Spirit in Orthodoxy, Dualism and Pre-Christian Slavic Mythology".

It written by Bruce McClelland.

Ten years later, he became the author of the first book on vampire hunters, Slayers and Their Vampires: A Cultural History of Killing the Dead (
Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2006).
