Arthen's Vampires

In spite of my rant concerning the "actual" thing, one of my favourite articles on defining vampires is Vyrdolak's (Inanna Arthen) "Who Are the 'True Vampires'? Or, the Evolution of the Word 'Vampire', Parts 1, 2 & 3".

She gives excellent coverage of the usage of the term over the centuries. A pretty good effort for something that originated on a message board.

Highly recommended.
