Here we go again . . . but not on here!!
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: This Blog is not intended to be about ridiculous fanciful ‘vampires’; although I have said it is OK to discuss ‘ghost cases’ here and the paranormal here if anybody wants to. But NOT talk about bloody stupid vampires or their so-called ‘creators’!
All this started because of a book review in a large local paper about ‘vampires’ yesterday, and we have been flooded with emails (myself phone calls) from people asking questions on the subject; or more precisely, my involvement in it. I have personally had to disallow 5 replies here since yesterday from people asking the wrong sorts of questions, and I recognizes at least 2 from well known trouble-makers! Yes, and you know who I’m talking about you disincarnate entity! I’m not saying they were all you, but that one almost certainly was!
OK. I believe in free speech, but not when this inevitably leads to a tiny element ‘jumping in’ on genuine replies or interest then trying to pretend their views are representative of general opinion. They are not – that’s why I can’t allow it here.
But to save absolute evasion: a hardbook has just come out which mentions the Highgate ‘vampire’ case (like so many books do) but it goes on to and comment on other people (one of whom being myself) who were involved in it from 1970 onwards. This book was reviewed yesterday in a large North London newspaper and the reviewer was a journalist who knows much about the people concerned.
That’s all I really have to say about it. But I will give you the author’s name so that you can go and look him up yourself. It is Stephen Roud.
So go off and have some fun if you want. But please do NOT bring your findings or opinions back here!
I wasn’t going to do a Blog today as I have been quite busy and am a little tired.
Anyway, that is why this Blog is shorter than usual and why I am now off to get yet more work done. Have fun everyone,
PS And that goes for you as well Craig!
