An Essay on Vampire Biology
Before speculating on any specific pathogens capable of producing a condition akin to vampirism, I wish to post an old line of reasoning on how vampires manage to survive on a diet which contains so much water and so little else.

The Vampire in History
They swept across the Bosphorus and into Eastern Europe with a vengeance, conquering the squabbling Slavs with ease. With them, they brought their middle eastern civilization, and some of their beliefs, but mostly they brought suffering. Suffering in the form of syphilis, leprosy, smallpox, tuberculosis... and God Himself seemed to turn against them, sending flood, earthquakes, and plague.

Nosferatu: the classic silent film
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922

May 27, 2007 (news-press.com / Jay McDonald) -- Where do discriminating vampires go to avoid the media frenzy and overblown stereotypes that tend to understandably exclude them from car pools and bake sales? Homosassa Springs, Fla., of course. It's got everything the well-traveled "Sanguinist" might want, including fresh oysters to fight those midnight cravings and Green Cross home hemoglobin delivery as an alternative to gnawing on the neighbors.
April 2, 2007 (Emily Wilson / The Guardian) - Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a weird title for a TV show, and it put a lot of people off watching it. Other people were repelled by the silly sci-fi stuff - the demons, the giant snakes, the zombies. But at the heart of Buffy was a brilliant, and still radical fantasy: the story of a woman who walked without fear into dark alleys full of monsters, and kicked monster butt. There have been other iconic female action heroes - Ripley in the Alien films, Sarah Connor in the Terminators - but Buffy was a feminist icon who got to tell jokes too.
February 27, 2007 (IASI, Romania / AP) - An American historian sentenced to seven years in prison for sexual perversion and abuse of minors won early release from prison Tuesday because he wrote a book about Dracula, his attorney said.

Dick and Jane and Vampires
Fanged characters have sunk their teeth -- sorry about that -- into the adult and young adult book markets, so is it really a surprise to find a new children's book called "Dick and Jane and Vampires" (Grosset & Dunlap: 144 pp., $9.99, ages 5 and up)?
American Vampires
Cover blurb: Vampires are all-American guys. Having successfully survived their journey from eastern Europe, they have taken root in American culture where for some people they are entertainment and for others a definite reality. In this fascinating book, Norine Dresser, a folklorist, brings us the fruit of her unique research into the American vampire phenomenon.
