Vampire Societies.
People who have a strong interest in a particular field, will often seek out other like minded indaviduals to compare notes, share ideas and make new friendships. Those people interested in Vampires are no exception, and there are hundreds of groups and societies around the world dealing with all aspects of the Vampire genre.

Below are listed the contact details for a few such societies. If you are in a group or society not listed below, and would like your society to be added to the list. Email pendragon@penddraig.co.uk giving your groups name, details, and contact information.
