Els casos de vampirisme citats per Calmet

I just noticed that Jordi Ardanuy published a paper in the Spanish magazine L'Upir number 15 earlier this year on the vampire cases mentioned by Calmet. Unfortunately, the paper is in Catalan, so I am unable to read it, but it contains e.g. a tabular overview of cases, and I can see that there are a couple of references to this blog. The paper is available as a 39 page pdf file download.

The systematical approach to Calmet's work is most welcome, but it's a shame that it isn't available in e.g. English, consequently prohibiting a larger audience from benefiting from the paper.

Ive quickly glanced over the PDF file. There is nothing in it concerning vampires that cannot be found in The Phantom World.

The paper only contain vampiric instances from Calmet’s book, with some notes. “Upir” is not a Spanish magazine. It is only a bulletin in Catalan from people of Balearics Islands, Catalonia, Andorra, País Valencià, Rosselló and l’Alguer.
