Back and online...

I am now back from Vienna and I am online for the first time since I left. Within the next couple of days I will write some notes about what happened, but for now I would like to just mention that the so-called Amateur Vampirologist has listed a number of new books on vampires in a comment here, so have a look. As yet I have only seen the list, and I confess that I am pretty sceptical about most of the titles, but I am grateful that this 'Amateur Vampirologist' has shared the list.

I have now looked more closely at the titles in the list, and I must admit that there is only one book on the list that I find worthwhile buying, and I preordered that quite a while ago: The book by Elizabeth Miller.

Hi Niels,

Yeah, I was excited about the prospects of so many new books coming out.

I admit that several of them aren't necessarily of scholarly value. They happen to be on my Amazon wishlist.

But I'll also add one more that might be of interest to you: Mark Collins Jenkins' Vampire Forensics: Uncovering the Origins of an Enduring Legend.

Hi Niels,

You might be interested to know about another vampire work in the pipeline, due for release next year.

I covered it here.
