Varney the Vampire: A Literary Remix

We are proud to unveil Varney the Vampire: A Literary Remix, a free digital book featuring the work of GalleyCat readers.

We used Smashwords to publish the final product, and you can download a free copy in all major eBook formats. If you participated in our Literary Vampire Remix Writing Contest but can’t find your work in the digital book, email GalleyCat and we will update the digital book.

Here’s more about the book: “A crew of dedicated GalleyCat readers remixed a single page from Varney the Vampire-a bestselling vampire novel from the 19th Century filled with enough star-crossed romance, vampire action and purple prose to inspire another Twilight trilogy.”

In addition, we’d like to extend a special thanks to eBook expert John Low at eBook Launch. He helped us smooth a number of formatting issues as we assembled the final eBook.

Editor’s Note: Please be aware that a few of the entries contain adult language.
