Two 2019 Anniversaries that I’m celebrating

[image error]200th Anniversary of John Polidori’s The Vampyre


Before Dracula, there was The Vampyre. John Polidori penned this story in 1819 – 78 years before Bram Stoker gave us his iconic vampire.


The Vampyre is a must-read for any fan of gothic literature, and of course fans of the blood-sucking monsters themselves. I read the book when I was 11 years old. At that age it felt as if I was rea...

“Have you ever been on a monster roller coaster? Ever rode it
five times in a row? That was what it felt like, as if my mind and body
were being whipped around and around in an unforgiving and
uncontrollable rhythm.”
Nicky Peacock, The Assassin of Oz

“Every hundred years or so a new Grim Anoukie is made; the Parish Priest at the time picks a victim, usually someone who has pissed off the church or simply wouldn’t be missed. He then buries them alive in the Virgin Grave; the rest is... history.”

Nicky Peacock
