    The word “Syndrome” in the title is perhaps especially relevant here.

Description

The word “Syndrome” in the title is perhaps especially relevant here. For here, the word itself, seems to suggest a story – or a ‘syndrome of events’ – that could only be seen to relate to the legendary gossip and stories relating to a ‘vampire’ said to lurk in and around London’s Highgate Cemetery back in the 1970s.

Indeed, the book exemplifies the story of this very case. It does not actually ‘lose track’ of the true time line of events, but goes into more personal detail about the involvement of other people  who ‘cashed in’ on the on-going legend, and attempted to exploit it if not for self gain as such, for reasons of attracting personal publicity.

The author describes in detail his own entanglement with some of these people; or rather, how he became aware of such activities and how he was ‘caught up’ in the situation accordingly. Or maybe more precisely, how such people ‘sought him out’ with the prime intention of ‘converting’ the relatively harmless psychic phenomenon he first reported at Highgate Cemetery in 1969, into a ‘blood-sucking vampire’.

 

Bizarre Magazine Vampyre Syndrome Review

Thanks to Bizarre Magazine, the readers of underground publication Chaotic Order seem to be labouring under the misconception that David Farrant is in fact Peter Cook working undercover. While we cannot categorically state that Peter Cook did not have a sideline in exposing bogus vampire hunters, we CAN categorically state that David Farrant would not be seen dead in public in a deer stalker hat. Thanks for the review though, guys.
