Interesting & unnusual, 18 April 2008
I'd definately recommend this book to anyone interested in the Highgate Vampire. It's a slim booklet but is an interesting read of an unnusual case in Londons Highgate Cemetery.
Reading Sean Manchesters Highgate Vampire aswell, these are two very interesting perspectives of a mysterious & haunting case. In reading both these authors understand that David Farrant is a wiccan (though some of his photos may seem alittle contradictory) & that Sean Manchester is a bishop coming from a more christian perspective.
David Farrant in his book relates his investigation of a malevolent psychic entity while Sean Manchester his experience of a living or undead vampire. There's some antagonism between the two authors, Farrant suggesting a living vampire is delusive & perhaps inspired by fiction.
I'd recommend Vampires by Konstantinos if you're interested in further reading, also Montague Summers is an authority on vampire lore.
