Morganville Vampires

by Terrance Mc Arthur



For a novel writer, short stories provide opportunities to—
• Create backstory.
• Throw characters together and see how they react.
• Develop web-only material.
• Explore a theme with other writers in an anthology.
• Try a different point of view.
• Answer a challenge from loyal readers.

Fans of the Morganville Vampires books by Rachel Caine will be thrilled to know that the first book, Glass Houses, has been turned into a web series that went up this week! And to top it off Amber Benson of Buffy fame is among the cast! KRL took a moment to chat with Rachel about the web series this week as it was going up on Geek and Sundry.

Morganville, Texas, has been a vampire town for generations. Humans have lived in fear and oppression…until now.
In Rachel Caine’s Daylighters, Claire Danvers and her friends (human and vamp), return to Texas from fighting an anti-vampire organization, only to find that the Daylighters have taken over Morganville. Humans walk the streets without fear, houses have fresh coats of paint, and new homes are being built. It’s wonderful, but there is the abandoned shopping mall on the edge of town that has armed guards on the outside…and is filled with vampires wearing explosive shock-collars. That’s not so wonderful.
