The AfterAge Limited Edition is available from The Overlook Connection Press! To the left is the stunning cover for this new edition by the supremely over-talented Richard Sardinha.

A plague of vampirism has swept across the world. Once-thriving cities are ghost towns, entire countries reduced to handfuls of terrified survivors. In Chicago, a few of those survivors hide behind the fortified walls of office buildings and museums, raiding deserted stores for dwindling supplies of clothing and food and fighting to stay alive... and unnoticed.

Meanwhile, a hungry vampire population also struggles for continued existence as their prey grows scarce, forcing them to capture alive the last remaining humans as breeding stock to ensure their future.

Now a small band of humans makes a last stand against their vampire conquerors, desperate to find a weapon that will kill the dead...


A few words about AfterAge, a finalist for the 1993 Bram Stoker Awards for Superior Achievement in a First Novel and named the "best paperback of 1993" by the Rocky Mountain News:

"...a classic vampire novel that deserves to be ranked equally with McCammon's They Thirst and John Skipp and Craig Spector's The Light at the End.... AfterAge is incredible and soul-shattering good."

---The Buzz Review, January 1998

"...one of the best horror novels of 1993."

---Don D'Ammassa, Science Fiction Chronicle, February, 1994

"Navarro has skillfully constructed an epic tale which embraces all the proven elements of the great saga.... manipulating and motivating her characters believably through a world that is almost too horrific to imagine..."

---Peter Crowther, Interzone, January, 1994

"To paraphrase an old vampire maxim, you can have your blood and drink it too."

---Edward Bryant, Locus, September, 1993
