One of the foundation stones of the Vampires Studies Association (VSA) is networking. Our affiliates program “involve[s] mutually sharing links to our respective organisations, potential collaborations, relevant promotions and referrals.”1

To that extent, we have our first affiliates listed, but not the first one to express interest in joining our network. More on that later.

In the meantime, I am proud to welcome Montréal Monstrum Society and The Hauntologist to the VSA affiliates fold. Both joined today. A link to our website already appears on the latter site.2

Both outlets are run by noted horror scholar, Kristopher Woofter, whose work will appear in our journal’s upcoming annual bibliography.
