ABOUT THE BOOK...

Here for the first time is the collected vampire fiction and poetry of C.J. Carter-Stephenson – six variations on the vampire theme, bound together by their protagonists’ burning lust for blood.

A disembodied spirit fighting to be reunited with his vampiric body… Two vampires braving the wilderness of space in search of a new home… A vampire with no recollection of his mortal life…

All this and more you will find in these pages. Sometimes sensual, but always deadly, these dark denizens of the night are waiting to infiltrate your dreams. Drink deeply of their adventures and they will open your eyes to the darkness inside yourself, but be warned, there will be blood. For the blood is the life and they are always hungry for it.

    PROCESS...

    I am one of those writers who likes to jot a story down on paper before typing it out. This allows me to work on it pretty much anywhere, while also forcing me to review everything I have written in laborious detail. Click on the thumbnails below to see some examples of my handwritten work for In the Beginning, one of the stories in Bloodlust Variations. They are shamefully untidy, I'm afraid, but they do give some insight into the way in which I work.
