A collection short vampire fiction, not for the faint of heart. Includes:
The Abandoned City
Van and Sara live in a dilapidated city overrun with vampires, which is great for work, since Van is a vampire hunter. The only problem is–he’s been bitten in the line of duty and is changing into one of the creatures he kills for a living. To make things worse, he’s getting thirstier by the moment and Sara has bigger issues at “stake,” like protecting her unborn child.
The Blue Children
An ancient vampire must make the difficult decision to lead his undead children into the light.
Julian’s Diary (A “Darklands Vampires” Story)
The gruesome history of Duniwich, the setting for the novel Darklands: A Vampire’s Tale is featured in his journal-style short.
A colonial Charleston, SC lady-of-the-evening has an unpleasant caller.
The Vampire Hunter’s Tale
A lone hunter in an industrial wasteland uses the safety of daylight to do his dirty work.
