The VYRMIN are coming!

And now it’s time for another Bloodshot Books announcement!!
As I stated a couple of months ago when I decided to expand the company and start our Second Sight line, my goal is to find titles that deserve exposure to a larger audience. Perhaps they only saw print outside the U.S, or in limited editions. Possibly the cover didn’t accurately represent the story. Or maybe they didn’t get enough publicity due to a glut in the market . . .Vyrmin 1992
I’ve already announced that the first book in the Second Sight line will be THE AWAKENING by Brett McBean.
Now I’m happy I can now announce the next book in our line of reprints: VYRMIN by Gene Lazuta
I first read it well over a decade ago, when I discovered a copy in a used book store in Arizona, and I liked it so much that, years later, I decided to track Gene down and offer to reprint it. Thankfully he accepted. 
Originally published in 1992, it is sort of a werewolf novel, but it doesn’t involve the usual plot where a werewolf bites someone and they get hairy by the light of the full moon.  With VYRMIN, Lazuta goes into the ancient mythology and takes the story in directions that I had never previously seen. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Here’s the original synopsis:

Before the dawn of civilization . . .  They infected the human race. They seduced us. They mated with us. They spawned new generations
In the shadows of a small town . . .  They feed their savage hungers. Men destroy their lovers. Mothers bathe in blood. Children run mad.
In the souls of two brothers . . .  They fight for control. One brother has been chosen to lead them. But which one? And will the other let him live?

  1. Pete, I think your Second Sight line is a bit of genius, and I hope it really takes off. I have a special spot in my heart for werewolf stories, and Vermin sounds terrific!
