The Closing Of Doors…

RedDoorsParisFranceVampire Community News (VCN) will continue to operate a monthly recap of articles with syndication via Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr through December 31, 2016.  Without the materialization of a MORE CONSISTENT support network it’s unlikely we’ll continue making the daily and monthly postings of vampire community related news and information in 2017.  I (Merticus) have continuously provided this service to the vampire community since 2008 and unfortunately my spare time is increasingly limited due to my professional career expanding on multiple fronts.

In August, the directors of Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC (parent company of VCN, AVA, VEWRS, VDTORS, VVC, etc.) met and discussed our present and future role with respect to the vampire community.  We collectively came to the unanimous decision that unless we’re breaking even on costs to provide websites, resources and other information that the time may have come to officially dissolve our operations.  In terms of the vampire community we believe we have accomplished the goals we set forth beginning in 2006.  It’s my fervent hope that progress is not stifled and that stagnation does not take hold of the community.  How the vampire community evolves has always been and will always be up to you.  Embrace new ideas and newcomers while continually challenging yourself to create and refine your passions!

We’ve no interest in crowdfunding or other revenue driving initiatives (we much prefer simply existing and never having to ask) but based on the level of support we receive between now and December 31st we will evaluate the logistical feasibility (and viability) of appointing vetted and responsible individuals to spearhead our ongoing projects and other initiatives so that they may continue and flourish in our absence.  If at all possible we wish to preserve the framework we’ve established, but we’ll respect the will of the vampire community if this isn’t the direction the majority wish to pursue.

Therefore, if you find value in the services and projects we facilitate and you’re able PLEASE DONATE by using the PayPal ‘DONATE‘ button located at the bottom of this website or at the website listed below.  A PayPal account is NOT required to make a donation.  Proceeds collected will be used to keep the various websites and projects running into next year until we can transition moderation and administrator access to those who will come next.  Thank you for whatever donation you’re able to make — great or small!

The Vampire In Europe: A Critical Edition – John Edgar Browning

TheVampireInEurope-ACriticalEdition-JohnEdgarBrowningThe Vampire In Europe: A Critical Edition
Edited by John Edgar Browning
http://www.amazon.com/Vampire-Europe-Critical-Montague-Summers/dp/1940671450/

This is yet another excellent work from John Edgar Browning.  Appendices C, D, & E will be of particular interest to the real vampire community (subculture).  I highly encourage everyone to pick up a copy of this book for their collection!

TheVampireInEurope-JohnEdgarBrowning-TableOfContents
Amazon: “THE VAMPIRE, His Kith and Kin examined the reasons for the old belief in Vampirism, its growth and dissemination in many lands, and its crystallization into a permanent and determinate legend. This new volume, The Vampire in Europe, uniform with the other, deals with the subject from a historical point of view and presents the evidence which gave rise to the theories. This evidence, drawn from little-known authors, musty chronicles, and the obscurer occultists, is in many cases derived from official sources, civil and ecclesiastical. The first chapter treats of Vampirism in ancient Greece and Rome. Accounts of the extraordinary outbreaks of Vampirism in England during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries have been gathered from Geoffrey of Monmouth and William of Newburgh. Particular attention is paid to the alleged irritation which gave rise to so much literature in the early eighteenth century, while the curious situation in modern Greece is fully discussed. Included in this critical edition are the authoritative text, rare contextual and source materials, illustrations, criticism, contemporary reviews, and Greek and Latin translations. A biographical note is also included.”

Diagnosed Physical & Mental Conditions Of Real-Life Vampires

VellumFolioLibraryThe following chart is a comparative analysis of two Vampire Community News (VCN) polls and the Vampirism & Energy Work Research Study (VEWRS & AVEWRS) conducted by Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC.  These data correlations relate to diagnosed physical and mental conditions reported by self-identified real vampires during 2006 to 2014.  Sanguinarian and Psychic feeding vampire responses to the VCN polls and VEWRS study indicated no statistically significant differences in condition reporting and have been combined for purposes of this presentation.  Please note that the condition options that were provided in these polls do not represent an exhaustive list; only a sampling based on longstanding observational and precedent data.  For additional information please refer to the websites and resources linked below.
