Moscow 1938: Stalin wants all vampires dead. The GUGB (predecessors of the notorious KGB secret police) have identified their threat as a significant danger to the security of the Soviet Union. Vampires are a walking embodiment of fascist values; lovers of blood, soil, hierarchy and inherited privilege. In short, true enemies of Communism.
GUGB appoints Captain Ludmilla Vatinashkaya to lead VAMPSOV, a covert unit charged with destroying the vampire threat and protecting the fledgling Soviet state. Her mission leads her to confront the most notorious vampire of them all, deep within his Transylvanian stronghold.
Vampsov 1938 is the tale of the battle between vampires and Bolsheviks. A precursor to a world conflict that looms ever closer and has the power to destroy them both.

Daniel Ribot lives in Leicester in the United Kingdom and writes all kinds of stuff up to and including science fiction and urban fantasy. He is too fond of travelling and has spent long periods in France, Mexico, Spain and New Zealand as well as the rain-lashed British Isles. He also holds the only PhD in Mexican comic books on the Eurasian landmass. If the circumstance should arise that he develops any hobbies, interests or any of life’s significant milestones, he promises to let everyone know. Isaac Asimov, Michael Moorcock and Jules Verne first fired Daniel’s imagination as a reader. His later explorations of particularly Latin American magical realism (Borges, Carpentier, Asturias, Garcia Marquez, Vargas Llosa and Bolaño), opened up his mind to the possibilities of fantasy as a vehicle to express serious ideas. He is a founder member of ‘The Speculators’ (Leicester’s SF/Fantasy writers group) and the Phoenix Writers. Daniel blogs (on writing, music and comics) at: floppybootstomp.wordpress.com Daniel’s second novel Vampsov 1938: A Spectre Haunting Europe will be available from Omnium Gatherum in 2013.
