(Did you mean the Joe Kennedy fanzine?)

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
A man-thing who keeps alive indefinitely by sucking blood from the living; Dracula is the classic example. In the case of Dracula, the vampire form of semi-human was able to change to bat or werewolf form. Vampires are identifiable by, among other things, being invisible in a mirror; they can prowl only between sundown and sunrise, having to rest in their native soil at other times. They are killable by a wooden stake driven thru the heart, in case the need arises.

We should mention (1) Joe Kennedy's Fourth Fandom 'zine from which the '45 and '46 Yearbooks got the name of Vampire Yearbooks, as being published by the ed of VAMPIRE, and (2) Karen Anderson's frightening V costume worn to the Solacon Masquerade Ball, displaying a wingspan of some 13'6" and, naturally, copping the Best Classical Fantasy Costume prize for that year.
