Manchester on Blogger

Sean (or Seán) Manchester has decided to enter the Blogger arena with Metaphysical Meanderings.

As of this writing, it has two followers.

One's a bloke named Anant Verna (Words 'N' Views) and the other is - perhaps unsurprisingly - "Vampirologist" (aka "Gothic" aka "The Overseer"), plagiari- I mean, author of Did a Wampyr Walk in Highgate?.

Yeah, he couldn't even come up with his own title.

But, back to Manchester's blog.

A couple of things caught my attention. Well, apart from having shameless brown-noser/propagandist/sympathiser TFO being a follower of his blog.

Firstly, Manchester's "Luisa" entry implies that the black and white photograph featured, is none other than a woman who was allegedly turned into a vampire, then later staked by the author of The Highgate Vampire (1985; 1991):
Lusia has never been identified by her real name and, until now, a photograph at the time of my knowing her has not been published. Sufficient decades have perhaps now passed to permit the one shown from my archive.
It's certainly a brazen move.

Especially considering the potential legal ramifications.

The other item of note, is the link given in "My Web Page" within Manchester's profile page.

Where does it lead, you ask?

Why, to the Vampire Research Society's "Books by Seán Manchester" page, of course! Shop smart!
