This is the home site of Peter Watts, sci-fi author. The above link goes to a short presentation called "Vampire Domestication" which comes across as a scientific symposium and presentation, starting about an experiment in gene therapy on an autistic child and how the doctors discovered what seems to be a lost subspecies of human: the vampire. It's amazing. Every aspect of vampirism is researched and explained in nearly completely plausible, scientific ways...right down to myths versus reality of various ancient vampire knowledge, future applications of vampires, and patenting the names of drugs that suppress the "Crucifix Glitch".
The whole thing is about half an hour long, so make sure you have time to view it. SFW, but takes a while. Fuckin' beautiful. This recording was actually a presentation at Ad Astra at some point...I would have LOVED to have seen it live.
