The 19th century was plagued by some of the greatest monsters ever known.

This historical, urban-fantasy world features fearsome vampires such as Carmilla and Lord Ruthven.

And the legendary Dracula himself!

Undead Collaborations

The stories in the Monsters universe feature the great terrors of old. No sparkly skinned romancers here; these monsters are out for blood and death.

While some works are original in this universe, one of the fun goals is to take and modify old, both famous and forgotten, books of yore and resurrect them, bringing them to life for modern audiences. It’s a way to reconnect readers of today with our literary and cultural roots, while modernizing old stories with more recent language and ideas.

Much of the original feel, characters and imagery remains, preserving the wonderful work of the original authors, with new content added to spice things up and give it a new feel too.

The Vampire

Long before Dracula arrived in London, Lord Ruthven had made it his home. A flawlessly handsome and charismatic man who wove webs of deception and corruption amongst London’s elite.

Aubrey, a young man spellbound by this lord, strives to emulate him. It is his good fortune to be invited on a continental tour with Ruthven, a journey which might help turn him into a man. Unfortunately, it leads him down dark paths.

Then Aubrey falls deeply and unexpectedly in love with a lovely young woman in Greece and turns away from Ruthven’s corrupt path, rejecting Ruthven’s mentorship.

Ruthven does not enjoy being spurned. And to him, revenge is a game to which he will go to the greatest lengths.
