500 year old Vampire Attacks Texas Woman

Vampire weekend

Or that’s what he claims.  When police found 19-year-old Lyle Monroe Bensley in a parkinglot in only his boxer shorts, he informed them he was a 500 year old vampire who needed to “feed”. That’s why he broke into a woman’s apartment and attacked her in bed while making hissing and growling noises.

The woman, luckily, escaped unharmed, and Bensley is now being held on a  $40,000 bond in Galveston County on a charge of home burglary with intent to commit a felony.

So how is a vampire doing in jail? And what do the literary vampires of the world think? To the best of my knowledge they’ve all disavowed him.

Even the glittery ones.

You can check out the rest of the article here – though mainly it just goes on and on about vampire fiction influencing youths.

The Lure of the Vampire

Lure of the Vampire: A Pop Culture Reference Book of Lists, Websites and Very Personal Essays (Volume 1) by Bertena Varney is now available on Amazon 🙂

I’m going to be terribly lazy and copy the product description:

Lure of the Vampire is a pop culture reference book that begins with history and mythology and ends with modern living vampires. The author has provided “fun” lists like the Powers of Dracula, Real Live Vampire Murders, Television Shows and African Americans who have played vampires. There are also websites in each section that show the most popular vampire books and even children’s shows and books. But, there is a personal twist when it comes to Lure of the Vampire. The author has provided personal essays from national and international vampire authors as well as her own. They range from a personal look at vampires in mythology to the romantic lust filled vampire. There are also interviews with various groups and individuals involved in the vampire community. Lure of the Vampire: A Pop Culture Reference Book of Lists, Websites, and “Very Telling” Personal Essays is a perfect quick to grab reference book for the vampire fan or author. It is concise enough to assist you in finding links to what you are looking for without our being too cumbersome and confusing.

As a big fan of Ms. Varney and her sociological vampire theories, this is definitely on my “to buy” list. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then check out her very cool website – http://searchforthelure.webs.com/ – she’s one of the few who don’t believe that vampires are a “safe sex alternative”, LOL! I can’t think of a higher recombination than that!

Going to be gone through Sunday. Will miss you all! While I’m gone go check out Bertena’s book 😉
