When I was writing Blood Lines as a graduate student, I had to go to a lot of trouble to get my hands on some of the original texts I was studying. Interlibrary loan became my best friend. Now, I am delighted to find that all of these texts are available online. For those who would like to read them, whether to enhance the experience of reading Blood Lines or just for fun, I’ve included links below. Over time I plan to add ebook versions of many of these for download, so stay tuned.
