The vampire wars are coming!

New York Times best-seller and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winner Jonathan Maberry is launching his first anthology as editor, and it includes stories by eight masters of modern horror.  V-WARS is a shared world anthology in which all of the tales are connected.  They can be read individually, but collectively they tell the story of a growing global catastrophe.  A virus released from melting polar ice triggers dormant junk DNA –the same DNA that once created vampires.  Now, all over the world, certain infected are becoming whatever kind of vampire was once part of their culture. Each kind of vampire is different, each is deadly in its own way, and none of them belong to the human race any more.

Reporting from the trenches of the V-WARS are contributors Nancy Holder, Scott Nicholson, John Everson, Gregory Frost, Yvonne Navarro, Keith DeCandido, and James A. Moore!

V-WARS is published by IDW (publisher of comics and prose collections). 

V-WARS will be in comic book stores and in e-book on June 27; and in all bookstores July 10.
