Vampire's Dilemma

Vampire's Dilemma

Multiple File Formats

"Life doesn't stop being complicated just because you're dead.

In the old days, vampires were sexy, ruthless, and evil. They could, and would, compel the living to do whatever they wanted. They owned the night. Unfortunately, being undead in modern times has unexpected and disturbing challenges.

Now nine authors take an amused, and sometimes grim look at the problems some vampires face in the twenty-first century. In ""Thin White Duke in Sneakers,"" a newly turned environmental activist and confirmed vegan has some serious issues with his politically incorrect vampire diet. Family life is disrupted in ""Uncle Dmitri"" when the police suddenly want to know what kindly Uncle Dmitri might be doing at night besides driving a cab. A young artist in ""Take My Breath Away"" desperately seeks a real vampire to turn her into an immortal only to discover she will still need to get a job to pay her rent. In ""The Face on the Coin,"" unlife is complicated by obsession, a vampire ghost, and time travel. ""Farmer"" is a tale of the far-future where humans may well be hunted off the face of the Earth. ""Sunrise Decision"" is the compelling story of a young marine in Fallujah who can only stop a murderous predator by making his own, personal life and death decision. In ""They Shall Take Up Serpents,"" a predatory Revivalist preacher is brought to justice by a vampire and a cage full of snakes. In ""Sale Season,"" intrigue and vampire romance haunt the art galleries of Europe while ""Cursed Blood"" asks the eternal question: Do you always have to bite the one you love?

These authors were inspired to write by various TV shows, from Star Trek, Forever Knight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (& Angel) to White Collar, Burn Notice, Vampire Diaries, Being Human, etc. and have made the leap from fanfiction to professional writing. All these stories are original universes."

Product Information
Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
