New Blog Series: Nosferatu’s Kindred

NosferatusKindredMarch 2022 marks the hundredth anniversary of the German horror classic Nosferatu, and I’m celebrating the occasion with a new weekly column at WWAC. It’s called Nosferatu’s Kindred and it’ll cover the history of German vampire fiction from 1748 to 1922. Today you can read the first post, in which i cover Heinrich August Ossenfelder’s “Der Vampir” — which was, of all things, a poem printed in a scientific journal.
