Vampires: friend or foe? Either way, time is on their side, and they are more powerful than ever before!
Meet the eternal predator that humanity never ceases to find both fascinating and terrifying. Evolve Two: Vampire Stories of the Future Undead moves this creature beyond 2012, through this century and into the next. We humans will evolve, but so will they! Whatever apocalyptic events that lie ahead for our species, for the planet, Vampires will be there too, helping or hindering, effecting or infecting us. Time is on their side, but it may not be on ours. They are vampires, and more powerful than ever before!

Night Fright with Brett Holland
Nancy Kilpatrick, international award winning horror author talks about vampires, past, present and future.
“Nancy Kilpatrick is, quite simply, one of the finest anthologists of our time. Evolve Two contains beautifully written, edgy stories as mesmerizing as the archetype they celebrate—that predator par excellence, the vampire. From an homage to Twelve Angry Men to a trip to Mars; a heartbreaking deal made between two friends, and the promise of a year-long night—Evolve Two takes us far beyond nosferatu's origins, and blasts us along the vampire's evolutionary trajectory. Evolve Three, please?” — Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Crusade
“Evolve Two: Vampire Stories of the Future Undead is a full-spectrum vampire anthology, with stories catering to all forms of the vampire legend. There’s something here to please all undead aficionados (or perhaps that should be 'aficionados of the undead'...I can’t speak to the vital signs of all the book’s readers).” — Kevin J. Anderson, Editor of the BLOOD LITE anthology series
“Vampire tales to quench everyone's thirst — a killer anthology!” — Lois Gresh, New York Times Best-Selling Author of Blood and Ice and Eldritch Evolutions
“Vampire tales to quench everyone's thirst — a killer anthology! Nancy Kilpatrick shows us the future of all things vampiric: angst, dreams, medicine, criminal trials, apocalyptic cravings, and of course, blood.” — Lois Gresh, New York Times Best-Selling Author of Blood and Ice and Eldritch Evolutions
“Vampire junkies, vampire justice and a poignant meeting of the living and the undead. One of the most astonishing—and thought-provoking—short story anthologies I've ever read.” — Elaine Bergstrom, author of Shattered Glass and Mina...the Dracula Story Continues
“In her introduction, Nancy Kilpatrick tells us there will be no stereotypes in Evolve Two, and she's as good as her word. The characters in these very original vampire tales range from hip urban huntresses to vicious cage fighters to lonely astronauts, the settings from isolated farms to futuristic underground courtrooms to post-holocaust deserts. Evolve Two is speculative fiction at its full-blooded best.” — Lisa Morton, Stoker Award-winning author of The Castle of Los Angeles
