Presented by M. Leigh Hood

Dig up the buried history of America’s Vampire Panic, its European roots, and the Panic’s lasting impact on Gothic fiction. Learn how to spot, treat, and probably not survive a case of ‘vampirism’ in your own family and how the good people of New England addressed the crisis.

M. Leigh Hood is a rare beast of the Cincinnati wilds, most often found walking her monstrous hound, Shuck, or working hard to exacerbate her carpal tunnel syndrome at the computer. Her work appears in Fairy Tales Punk’d Volume II, Cincinnati Magazine, and the in-development MonThology project.
