The following is not a comprehensive list of real-vampire websites, but includes
only (1) the more informative sites and (2) the oldest sites, listed for
historical value. Views expressed on the following sites are not necessarily
endorsed by me. For definitions of the types of vampirism by which most of
the sites are classified, see my "Tentative
conclusions" article. (Note that the types are not mutually exclusive;
they overlap heavily.)
1. General real vampirism pages, without a specific focus:
Visions, a very comprehensive site run by Dark Mistress and Immaculate
The Vampire Support Page, one of the best-known sites in the Internet
vampiric community, founded in 1997. The first site to feature practical
tips for blood vamps, as far as I'm aware.
A Theory on Real Vampirism
(x) by Sasha, who has been active on Internet vampire message boards since
April 1997. She set up her website that summer, independently of Vyrdolak's
and Sangi's which were set up within 3 months of each other.
A new Psychic Vampires
(x) site, which looks like it's going to become very informative.
The incomplete remains of a pioneering Psychic
Vampires (x) site, which was very influential in the online vampiric community
in early 1998.
(x), which has recently been dismantled, as
explained here. Needless to say, the majority of online psivamps would
not agree with Waste67's present views, although many have struggled with
Ad for the book Vampires:
Emotional Predators by Daniel Rhodes & Kathleen Rhodes, published
by Prometheus Books. (A psychiatric
view of psychic vampirism. Note that self-described psychic vampires do not
necessarily manifest the obnoxious behaviors described in this book, which
are more likely to be characteristic of unconscious/latent or "unevolved"
psivamps. And even unconscious psivamps may attract attention and/or energy
in more benevolent ways.)
4. Sites which advocate or assume the idea that blood vamps and psivamps
are essentially the same:
Born Again Vampires (x). maintained
by Darkcrw. One of the more down-to-earth of the sites that existed in 1997,
skeptical of then-prevalent claims of greatly extended lifespan, etc. One
of the first sites to state that quite a few vamps are subject to certain
5. History and personal accounts of the online vampiric community:
is stranger than fiction on Sarrah/Sabrina/Aerisephira's site In
Dreams of Darkness. A personal account of what the Internet "real vampire"
scene was like in 1997, when it was dominated by tellers of tall tales, before
the emergence of today's more down-to-earth Internet vampiric community in
winter 1997/98. Originally written in February 1998; revised subsequently.
6. Sites or articles featuring hard-to-believe claims such as extreme
longevity. (I have not included most of the many such sites, but only
those that have had a significant impact on the online vampiric community
or are otherwise especially interesting.)
Studies Home Page, maintained by Catherene, who formerly hosted a Manhattan
cable TV show, Vampyres, then left New York in early 1998. Her claims were
an object of much controversy in alt.vampyres in the fall of 1997. As far
as I can tell, Catherene's site is the origin of the categorization system
("Classical," "Inheritor," etc.) also found on some other sites.
