I couldn’t end the year without a blog entry, but it’s gonna have to be a quick one—gotta get ready for New Years’ Eve tonight!

While writing my latest “Upcoming Books” instalment (Hogg 2013), I went Googling for the full title of a book I mentioned in the post—Daniel J. Wood’s Realm of the Vampire: History and the Undead—and stumbled across an interview he’d conducted for FATE Magazine
