SPECIAL LESTAT BOOK COVEN CONTEST:
***Win a signed paperback of the first volume of author Dani Hoot’s “World of Vampire” stories, which are a brilliant rehashing of various cultural vampire stories, where the classic horror notions of vampires are reintroduced to help remind you of the horror and psychological potential of the character of the vampire, which has been lacking as of late in more lackluster forms of vampire stories.
I was lucky to have had the opportunity to edit all four short novellas in the book, which are exciting, heart-racing adrenaline rushes, and intimate psychological portraits of four very diverse characters, who find themselves becoming vampires without any choice in the matter.
Even though, I have had to read all four stories closely a number of times,in the course of meticulously editing them, I still find myself re-reading several stories because they’re very intense and very easy to get esnared by Dani Hoot’s briskly-paced, concise prose.
For more details about the book, you may want to read the following enticing synopsis of this exciting volume of vampire stories:
Vampires around the world are coming forth to remind humans they are not romantic fantasies to be sought, nor are they souls that can be redeemed. These are the stories they must tell. This is the collection of the first four novellas of A World of Vampires Series: Hooh-Strah-Dooh, Baobhan Sith, Strigoi, and Jiangshi. Hooh-Strah-Dooh: Anne Fitzgerald gives the tale of her involvement with the Irish gangs in the 1930s and how her life is full of love, loss, and abuse as she is forced to turn into the Wyandot’s vampire, the hooh-strah-dooh. Baobhan Sith: Captain Henry Williams had everything he wanted back home in England, the woman of his dreams waiting for him, all he had to do was make it home after the war. But as he travels through the Highlands, he finds that fate has another plan for him. Strigoi: Amalia loved living as a traveler through the country of Romania, listening to the music of the night, until she found out the evil that was behind the music. Now she must decide to save her own skin, or bring forth the most evil strigoi ever to roam the world. Jiangshi: Hui Zhang was given a chance to follow his dreams in San Francisco and he took it, but was the money worth the price he paid? Especially when the evil he had done haunts him and his family?
