About

Killing the Dead is a blog is about vampirology, or the study of vampires. Especially the vampire of folklore, and the many ways that he has been dealt with over the ages. I am an academic reference librarian researching the origins of vampire lore and legend in Eastern Europe, especially in Christianity.  I also keep up with the vampire in popular culture.

The title Killing the Dead refers to the multiple ways that vampires and other revenants of folklore are dispatched after death.
