Halloween is right around the corner. Zombies, werewolves, ghosts, witches and vampires rule the land for the next couple weeks. If you've found yourself wondering why we care about spooky creatures this time of year, perhaps you should attend Dr. Brendan Kelly's lecture at Quinnipiac University School of Law Center this week. "Fusion, Delusion and a Thirst for Blood: Bram Stoker and the Psychology of Vampires" has Kelly trying to explain the origin of the vampire myth, including why it's hung around so long, and if people who think they are vampires are really just mentally ill. Sounds very iiiiiiinteresting.
