Welcome to Vampyres Only, the original vampire website!
Renfield says, "Established in 1994, VO was the first vampire website, and has been undead and kicking for over twenty years! There's a wealth of information here--thousands of pages!--dedicated to these bloodsucking creatures of the night. I hope you enjoy the original undead web!"
From Book Two of the Eyrbyggia Saga: There were once two great Icelandic warriors, Aswid and Asmund. They were not only the greatest of generals, but they were also blood brothers. One of them suggested, as they grew older, that they should make a death pact -- that when one of them died, the other would go to the grave with his friend. They both agreed to this and swore on their blood.
Serial killer John George Haigh knew the power of the monstrous image to incite horror into people's minds, and even today he is cited as a murderer who drank a cup of blood from his victims before getting rid of their bodies. He's found on nearly every list of "modern vampires," which attests to his own insight in just how far his legend would carry. However, there's no evidence that he had such a fetish and plenty of reason to believe that he was malingering a mental illness that would get him sent to a mental institution.
"Eclipse" is at the top of the hardcover best-seller lists. Teenage girls nearly got into fistfights over advance copies of Stephenie Meyer's last vampire love story, "New Moon," after they arrived at the Carnegie Library in 2006.

Best selling author of The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen enters the vampire genre with this retelling of Stoker's horror tale told from the perspective of Mina Harker. Years into her marriage to Jonathan, Mina continues to be tormented by memories of her time with Dracula and decides the only way to free herself of the past is to record it. The story picks up just prior to that fateful summer when Mina first meets the Count and is surprised by their instant connection.
Review by Carl KimlingerJuly 6, 2007 Canon radiates solid quality from its no-frills vampire mythology to its stolid mid-90's shoujo artwork. It touches most of the right bases for a supernatural drama, and if it doesn't excite right off the bat, that's more because it's too busy establishing itself than because of any inherent limitation.
