Bloodbond publishes short stories, poems, art, and articles, reviews, and interviews, all related to vampires, werewolves, and shapeshifters. We are especially interested in stories that combine science fiction with these topics, and that take place on or in relation to other worlds. Stories absolutely must have the following: characters the reader cares about, plots and subplots, and settings that draw the reader into them. Must have. Stories are always about characters, first and foremost. The blood and moon and whatnot comes afterwards, as a sort of side effect. Your story should take us into the world of the vampire, were-critter, or shapeshifter, and should take us into the mind and experience of your protagonist.
