In Book 1: Stargods, Vampires, and Dragon-wolves, the Dark Age of Enlightened Vampires has arrived. Fr. Andrew Mark Phillips, converted in the early 1800s by the mystical Padre Chacon Levardee of San Juan Capistrano, was a missionary evangelist, who trekked to a remote mountain village in the Cordillera Mountains of Northern Luzon, Philippines on Bishop Donald Kadiz’s dire request. Accompanied by two young, attractive, and idealistic ex-Peace Corps volunteers, Jude Marlowe and Margaret Benford, Fr. Andrew encountered the Daralinga tribe, which unfortunately meant “Blood Hunters.” As descendants of the Stargods, this tribe had the power to shape-shift into “Dragon-wolves” with the penchant for human blood, and they possessed mysterious and powerful relics: a katana (Japanese sword) and a crystal skull originally molded by the Stargod, Tatsulong. Jude Marlowe was caught up in a love triangle that resulted in his death; Margaret Benford was impregnated by a Daralinga warrior named Gerardo, and Fr. Andrew was exposed of his true nature and hunted down by ex-vampire minions, Nicholas Paige and Priscilla Drake from America, which climaxed to an inevitable confrontation.

Gilberto Freyre was arguably the most famous intellectual of twentieth-century Latin America. He was active as a sociologist, a historian, a journalist, a deputy in the Brazilian Assembly, a novelist, poet and artist. He was a cultural critic, with a good deal to say about architecture, past and present, and a public intellectual, whose pronouncements on race, region and empire - not to mention sex - made him famous in some quarters and notorious in others. "The Masters and the Slaves," his most famous work, went through forty editions and has been translated into nine languages, made into a comic book and a television miniseries, while two directors (one of them Robert Rossellini) planned to turn it into a film. Yet he is not well known outside Brazil. Freyre was a major social thinker, one of the few who have not come from Western Europe or the USA, and this book argues that we should take account of the pioneering work of this gifted intellectual. His ideas are of particular relevance today for both political and academic reasons. His interest in gender, ethnicity, hybridity, identity, globalization, and capitalism ensures that his ideas are still provocative and topical, and ready to be introduced to a wider audience.
