I've been a DARK SHADOWS fan since June 27, 1966, when I watched the show's very first episode at age 12. I enjoyed watching Victoria Winters' search for her identity, sure she was a Collins, but didn't become completely hooked until Barnabas Collins was freed from his coffin by Willie Loomis, unleashing not just a vampire, but pure, scary fun from a daytime soap opera! Meeting Barnabas' only wife, Angelique, in the stunning, gracious personage of Lara Parker, over 30 years later, was a real thrill for me. The following photos were taken at the Levittown Borders Book Store in New York on November 18, 1998.
