New Scientist ponders the population dynamics of vampires.

And this is why I love the New Scientist so!

I love it! I like reading vampire stories and thought about writing one once (I've indulged with semi-vampiric creatures, although at least they don't sparkle), and population dynamics are the first thing that came to mind. It's one thing if your vampires retain their human intelligence. They could then just refrain from making everyone they bite an immortal, and monitor their feeding to avoid drawing human attention. But when you've got crazy I AM LEGEND-style vamps? They'd overrun the earth quickly.

I started reading your blog because you're an agent, but honestly, I keep reading because you have the Best. Links. Ever. I now must pass this one on to everyone I know.

It's like wolves and sheep, if new wolves were born by falling in love with and biting sheep.

Hmmm...

Colleen--this was a hoot! Thanks for sharing. And I agree with guinwhyte: I started reading because I wanted to be signed by you (sigh), but I KEEP reading because you have the funniest and most thoughtful links. And Tara...you cracked me up!
