Ghost Drums is short story about a vampire, Lazarus Kalon, intent upon stealing the power of a shape shifter, a shaman of the Kwakiutl people. Yet, there is another supernatural being, one that haunts the Kwakiutl and who has become very aware of Lazarus presence.
Ghost Drums seamlessly blends traditional vampire lore with native mythology.
