- “Interview with the Vampirologist”
Erin Chapman’s interview with the me (Aug. 17, 2014) scores a consecutive appearance after it was also the most viewed article in January 2015.
Last month, I said: “Erin and I have been working on some major projects for the site, including one of our most ambitious articles yet; an absolute belter.” That article was “5 Reasons Why a Wampyr Didn’t Walk in Highgate.” We had so much material to work with, there’s going to be a follow-up! Stay tuned for that.
Those “major projects” are still underway. A site overhaul will be coming soon, too. I’m looking forward to it and hope you will, too!
