Felix Gomez, detective-vampire, is on a mission to rescue the bodacious vampiress Carmen Arellano from her alien captors. She’s held prisoner by a warrior race of bad-ass extraterrestrials who need her help to recover their mojo before they go extinct. Then Phaedra, the ruthless bloodsucking ingénue–now with extra-superpowers–enters the scene to make good on her threat to destroy the vampires. But Felix is not alone in his quest to save Carmen and stop Phaedra. His pistol-packing sidekick, Jolie, and everyone’s favorite down-and-out trickster sage, Coyote, jump into the fray. It’s an intergalactic adventure bristling with action, double-crosses, and magic

Sean Eads Eads headshot

Born in West Virginia and raised in Kentucky, Sean Eads finally found his home when he moved to Colorado in 1999. He is a reference librarian at the Standley Lake Public Library in Arvada.

Writing seriously since he was fourteen years old, Sean’s first success was winning an NEH grant as an undergraduate at the University of Kentucky for literary criticism on the role of mesmerism in Henry James’s The Bostonians. Convinced he was on the verge of a breakthrough in his writing career, the next two decades proved him very wrong. But he kept at it, and started seeing some success in his late thirties. His first novel, The Survivors, was a finalist for the 2013 Lambda Literary Award. His next novel, Lord Byron’s Prophecy, will be published this October. His writing has appeared in various other places, including The Journal of Popular Culture, Shock Totem, and anthologies like Zombies: Shambling Through the Ages.
Sean’s passion, aside from writing, is golf. His favorite writers include Hemingway, Bradbury, and Faulkner. In 1997, he spent two minutes sitting in Old Sparky, the electric chair at the Kentucky State Penitentiary, just a few weeks after its last current use. He credits the experience with adding an extra jolt to his sentences.


is a dark, apocalyptic fantasy for the modern age. A must read for 2015.
