Vampires terrorize the Tundra! (Well, not really…)

Marita Crandle, owner Boutique du Vampyre, directed my attention to a “website” discussing vampires in Alaska and advances in “vampirology and technology.” Heh heh heh. This is clever. A little behind the times, politically speaking, as the primary issues it addresses have already been decided, but it stands out as an intelligent, biting (pun of…

If you can’t stake it, fake it!

Sean Manchester, 70, phony vampire hunter, replied to “Vampire Hunter Dodges Horror Heavyweight’s Meet Offer” (June 15, 2015). The result was unsurprising. Ah, the Internet!

Another GHOST RIDER? Another LEFT BEHIND? Say it ain’t so!

Not a day goes by without hearing a new story about a celebrity being a vampire, and new “old” photographs emerge from somebody’s basement or grandpa’s photo album.

For sale by owner. Ignore the bloodstains.

The 13th-century fortress in Transylvania called Bran Castle, and often referred to as Dracula’s Castle, is up for sale by its owners — the Habsburg royal line — and the Romanian government has apparently placed an $80 million bid on the storied mansion.
