Crossover Cover: Nightblood


A vampire entombed beneath Isherwood, Indiana for 75 years is released, and begins creating its own vampire army from the townsfolk. Wandering monster hunter and Vietnam veteran Chris Stiles steps in to end the menace. Stiles has fought vampires in New Orleans, California, and Maine. Grady Hendrix’s introduction to the 2019 Valancourt Books edition explains the sources of these references. The New Orleans reference is an allusion to Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles. The California reference evokes Robert R. McCammon’s They Thirst. Maine refers to Stephen King’s ’Salem’s Lot.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
