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. Conceived by Jonathan Maberry, V Wars features stories from various “frontlines” as reported by such contributors as Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson (as well as Maberry himself, of course). The result is a compelling series of tales that create a unique chronicle of mankind’s response to this sudden, hidden threat to humanity.


Every culture has its own stories of night creatures. What if they’re based on fact?

Now, the nightmare creatures are returning. And they are hungry.

V-WARS chronicles the first Vampire War, from the savage murders committed by “patient zero” of the V-Virus plague, to full-out battles with vampire terrorist cells.

Author Jonathan Maberry–New York Times best-seller and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner–gathers these masters of horror to report form the V-WARS trenches: Nancy Holder, Scott Nicholson, Keith DeCandido, Gregory Frost, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, John Everson (and Jonathan Maberry).

The Vampire Wars have begun.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
