"If ever there was in the world a warranted and proven history, it is that of vampires: nothing is lacking, official reports, testimonials of persons of standing, of surgeons, of clergymen, of judges; the judicial evidence is all-embracing."
~ Jean Jacques Rousseau ~
Mission and Purpose

By Light Unseen is intended as a resource for those exploring the deeper implications--philosophical, spiritual, and practical--of real life vampirism, and its relationship to history, tradition and culture.

This website shares some of the knowledge and wisdom I have earned in more than four decades of research, study and experience in the field of vampire folklore, metaphor, fictional media and reality. It corrects and explains some of the vast amounts of misinformation and falsehoods about vampires that circulate continuously in our society.

If you're tired of slogging through the morass of vampire nonsense and are ready for the truth, you're in the right place. Welcome to By Light Unseen!
