By Light Unseen Media is an independent press devoted entirely to fiction and non-fiction on the themes of vampires and vampirism...
I've been a student and researcher of vampire folklore, fiction, and fact since I first snuck Montague Summers' The Vampire in Europe and Bram Stoker's Dracula out of the adult stacks of the Spokane Public Library when I was in junior high school. I'm devoted to exploring the deeper meanings of the vampire in fiction and metaphor, and to exposing and debunking the sloppy assumptions, misinformation and nonsense about vampire folklore and fact that too many people take for granted. Yes, I am absolutely maniacal on the topic of vampires. By Light Unseen Media is my lifelong dream, a media portal for sharing vampire fiction and non-fiction in print, audio and electronic media that doesn't cover the same old ground as everything else out there.
