Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.

Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.

SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 ( where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

Are you all being really serious?! I am NOT a vampire hunter, nor have I ever claimed to have been. It was the media and television that ascribed this 'title' to myself, not myself. Mr. Manchester, on the other hand claims to be a real life 'vampire hunter'; that is a title that he attributed to himself quite freely - and still attributes to himself in the present day - so any confusion much surely arrive between Mr. Manchester's descriptions of himself as opposed to my real position as a psychic investigator; one, who in fact, does not even accept the existence of 'blood-sucking vampires'!

It surely does not need too much intelligence to work out who is really making such outragous claims?! Mr. Manchester seems to have said it all. You here, seem to be taking his outragous claims (about staking vampires etc)at face value. That is not really my fault. I never made such claims in the first place, so that is really Mr. Manchester's problem. And with respect, must be a problem for anyone here who is taking such outragous claims (as Mr Manchester, himself, has made) seriously?!

Please stop branding me as a 'vampire hunter'. I am NOT, and have never claimed to be so.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant, President of The British Psychic and Occult Society

Okay, see, this is where you earn the insane label. Nowhere have I labelled YOU a vampire hunter. I labelled Sean Manchester one, and with complete sarcasm.

I have no idea where you get your delusions of me "siding" with Manchester considering I've been making fun of him for 13 odd years now and put up with his and your emails about the whole insane Highgate vampire thing for far FAR too long. I mean, did you read the other posts on this topic in my journal where I print Sean's insane emails and a ton of people respond about what a whacko he is?

Look, You're both messed up. You're both acting like children. You're both feuding about something THIRTY YEARS OLD. Every heard of the Hatfields and the McCoys? That's you two. Except British. And with occult beasties.

For the love of god, act 60, not 6. PLEASE.

scuse me a sec...


Seriously? This is too rich. I mean, let it go, my man. Do you really think anyone from my generation really cares about this? Do you sit up at night really pondering what your legacy is? Do you really care what a bunch of twenty and thirty-somethings across the pond really think about you?

Get a clue, get a life, get a job, get a hobby, and please, for fuck's sake, GET LAID!
