As One Dead
by Nancy Kilpatrick and Don Bassingthwaite.
White Wolf Publishing, 1996. (WW 11517)

The Sabbat hold Toronto, a city of over three million humans. A band of renegade Camarilla helped them take Toronto and, in return, they were given 'The Box', a two-mile-square parcel of land in the downtown core. The Box is home to the city's Goth subculture, artistic community, avante garde thinkers and other elements of society's underbelly. Ripe pickings for the 24 Camarilla existing within these boundaries. But The Box is still a prison. And when a beautiful vampire named Bianka comes into The Box to point this out and stir up trouble, the Camarilla are divided: follow her lead and rebel against the Sabbat, or live forever as slaves within their dark empire.

But the Sabbat have their own agenda, personified on the one hand by Bishop Fletcher, the most evil, bloodthirsty killer, prone to torture, and Lot, rational, courageous, honest, but relatively powerless.

Sabbat politics mingles with a fated encounter between Bianka and Lot in a powerful story of intrigue and tragedy.

This is set in the universe of Vampire: The Masquerade but does not require prior experience with the roleplaying game.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
