How did vampirism originate? What connection does vampirism have with the Garden of Eden and Greek mythology? What is the difference between immortality in the real world and immortality in the divine world? All these questions are answered in this collection of short stories.
The idea for these rather short, short stories came to me while writing the novel, Carpathian Vampire, which is set primarily in Sinaia, Romania. It will be published at a later date. I wrote them to flesh out my characters by dramatizing events in their lives that define who they are. Most of the characters in each are from that novel, but here I've adopted entirely different points of view and set them in different times and in different countries.
The short stories in this volume are:
Call Me Missy: Traveling Ireland with a Vampire
Turned, Turned Back: A Tale of Unaccountable Redemption
One Blessing, Two Curses: Mythology of the Vampire
A Centaur's Legacy: Man of This World
Alu's Cross Aversion: The Race of Vampires Comes to Fear Christ's Cross
