Ruthlessly Thrown Overboard

Yuri Hamaganov Author Interview

Vampire’s Day: Epicenter takes place in LA where bloodthirsty vampires are taking over the city and only a few people stand in their way. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

My inspiration was the best action movies of the eighties, such as Die Hard and Lethal Weapon. It just so happened that they were filmed in Los Angeles.

I really enjoyed the action in this novel. What scene did you have the most fun writing?

The whole line of Brown – a mercenary who turned the apocalypse into a successful business. And in contrast – the story of Gloria, a simple school bus driver who is forced to stand against vampires without weapons and any training. It’s interesting to watch a bunch of mighty warriors in battle, but how an ordinary person will survive and save others is much, much interesting.

What were some new ideas you wanted to introduce to the vampire genre in this book?

I’m ready to make a sincere confession: I don’t really like vampire’s books and movies too. In my opinion, the genre has become rather ossified, has ceased to develop. Therefore, my novel is an anti-vampire, creating which I set myself the task of getting rid of all the clichés and stamps of vampire literature. You want bloodthirsty vampires – OK, as many as you want, a whole army. But realty in Transylvania, coffins and aspen stakes, ancient prophecies, chosen ones and love triangles – forget it, for this, you need to turn to some another book. Clichés and stamps are ruthlessly thrown overboard, starting with the most important thing – all the action takes place during the day.

This is book one in the Vampire’s Day series. What can readers expect in book two?

They can wait for the continuation of the war, watching the conflict both from the human side and from the vampire’s point of view, when the same event can and will be seen and evaluated in completely different ways. Plus a prequel telling exactly where did vampires who aren’t afraid of the sun come from. It will be unexpected…
