Fasinating. I wonder how many mentally ill people (or perhaps those with blood disorders?) have been murdered through the over enthusiastic attentions of the so called 'vampire slayer'? We hear about people being persecuted for witchcraft but we don't hear so much about vampires and my feeling is that the archetypal notion of the vampire has been around in some form or another for a long time in all cultures. An unhealthy (fearful) obsession with the dead and with corpses may well have led some people to become a 'vampire slayer' in days of old.

Thanks for the link Curator.

Personally speaking I always supported Spike. He was the best thing on that show. Looked like a decadant version of Billy Idol in his prime.

If you like reading about Vampires I suggest "Fevre Dream" by the great George R.R. Martin. its set on a paddle steamer.

Agreed - it's a wonderful evocation of the time, and a cracking read.
It's probably my favourite Vampire story as a stand-alone novel.

So who is the disturbed one -- the Goth, who thinks he is a vamp or the Slayer who does him in?

Rhetorical question. No answer necessary.

In fact, that's the purpose of the book I mentioned earlier...

That's a good book Curator, my girlfriend went to college with Bruce and was one of the people he had read/comment on early drafts, she's in the acknowledgments.

Yes, very nice, Curator. I often use the Day of the Dead Tarot cards.
