Our first novel in the series, CULT OF THE NOSFERATU, featuring vampire hunter Bertram Welles, will debut as an e-book on Black Friday--that Friday, 27 November, 2015.  We hope you like your vampires vicious and deadly, because that's how we plan to serve them up to our hero Bertram Welles!

WHAT IS VAMPIRE HUNTERS INCORPORATED?

It's two series of horror/adventure stories, presented in novel and audio drama formats of two very distinct sets of heroes and heroines, separated only by time...

THE WELLES SERIES

Meet Bertram Welles, vampire hunter.
Set in contemporary New York City, these novels and audio dramas follow the adventures of Bertram Welles, a private detective who also is the New York operative of a world-wide group of vampire hunters called "The Organization". Welles leads a team of agents who work tirelessly in Manhattan and the surrounding New York Burroughs flushing out and, when needed, executing the undead who lurk and prey upon the living.

The first novel in the series, set to debut as an e-book, is CULT OF THE NOSFERATU.

THE HARKER SERIES

Harker and the shadow of Dracula

Set in London in 1905, during the Edwardian era and during the years of rapid social and technological change, and only a few years after the adventures of the English vampire hunters in Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula", our HARKER SERIES follows the continued adventures of Jonathan and Mina Harker.

By day, Jonathan is a successful solicitor, and Mina is a successful school teacher. Progressive and forward-thinking, the couple are bonded by mor than mere marriage: they have a son together and they have the shared, terrifying experience of helping vanquish the greatest vampire who ever preyed upon the living, the King of Vampires, Count Dracula!

The Harker's ongoing adventures as vampire hunters will be dramatized in a series of audio novellas starring Mark Redfield as Jonathan and Caroline Munro as Mina.

HARKER AND THE SHADOW OF DRACULA
is the first 90-minute audio novella that will be produced and released in the first half of 2016.

Several years after the events that were chronicled in "Dracula", Jonathan and Mina confront the horror of their young son being preyed upon by the acolytes who have sworn to uphold the legacy of Count Dracula, and bring him back to undead life at any and all costs! To save their son, Quincy, the Harker's must travel back to Castle Dracula in Transylvania and stop Dracula from executing his revenge.

The second audio novella, HARKER AND THE DEVIL'S CHILDREN, will debut in the fall of 2016.

GRAPHIC NOVELS
Additional adventures will be told in the illustrated medium of graphic novels! The first HARKER GRAPHIC NOVEL title will be announced mid-2016,

WHAT DO THE WELLES SERIES AND THE HARKER SERIES HAVE IN COMMON?

Both Bertram Welles, and in turn his agents, and Jonathan and Mina Harker, are operatives of a world-wide group known to then as simply "The Organization". Welles and the Harkers are simply separated by time and geography. the Harkers work in Greater London in the early 20th century, and Welles in Manhattan in the early 21st century.

The headquarters of "The Organization" is in London, and is secretly contained below the crypt of the late vampire hunter Dr. Abraham Van Helsing. "The Organization" is extremely well-organized and funded, and are the primary financial support of Welles and the Harkers. "The Organization" has operatives all over the world, and each operative has several agents working for them. Jonathan and Mina Harker are founding members of "The Organization", under the leadership of Dr. Van Helsing before he died.

In the 21st century, Bertram Welles refers to "The Organization" invariably as "The Organization", Vampire Hunters Incorporated" or "VHI".

In the 20th century, Jonathan and Mina Harker refer to "The Organization", when they must, referring to it as "Van Helsing"; when they must visit headquarters in the crypt, they euphemistically say they must "...visit with Van Helsing..."
