Saint Christopher vs. The Vampire

My first novel is now available for sale. It’s called THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF, and I’m pretty proud of it. It is based on real-world legend, specifically the legend that St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, among other things, was a “Cynocephalus,” a “Dog-headed man” who killed and ate human beings. This is for real, folks. Grab yourself an encyclopaedia of the saints and look it up if you don’t believe me. In the actual mythology, Christopher was a human being with the head of a dog or wolf. I chose to take this description as a metaphor. He sometimes TRANSFORMED into such a creature. He was, in other words, a WEREWOLF.

A Christian Saint who was cursed with Lycanthropy. I knew there was a story there.

The werewolf isn’t the only supernatural predator in the book, though. I couldn’t resist having my werewolf duke it out with a particularly nasty vampire, although perhaps not the specific kind of vampire you’re most used to seeing in fiction. I wanted to do my own thing with the established lore.

So who wins, the werewolf or the vampire? You’ve gotta buy the book to find out. Hey, it’s only $2.99. That’s chump change! Give it a chance, and if you like it, consider giving it a review. Shoot me a line, while you’re at it. I’d love to hear from you.

    Actually there IS an old legend about St Christopher(whose portrait hangs by my bedside) that as he was unusually handsome and was constantly pestered y adoring women, he prayed to be given a dog’s head- and so he was by God, but formal werewolfism??
