Stefan Rudnicki, Gabrielle de Cuir, and Wil Wheaton lead a team of eight first-rate narrators who read eight interwoven novella-length tales by eight award-winning science fiction/horror writers that focus on the first days of the vampire epidemic. The narrators all use a journalistic matter-of-fact style that gives their voices and characters an immediate, realistic sound that suggests that ANYBODY could be infected and that those who are, naturally, would try to hide it and blend back into society. It’s all pulled off so well that listeners may want to check in their own mirrors to see if they’ve grown fangs. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
A sweeping, threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars! Mankind is silently infected by a millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person’s so-called “junk DNA” becomes activated, and depending on their racial and ethnic heritage they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the “others” that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren’t your usual vampires and werewolves – it goes much deeper than that.
