About Harris Gray
Allan Harris and Jason Gray are the writing duo Harris Gray. Allan is a former guest columnist for The Denver Post. Jason owns Crowfoot Valley Coffee and the Crowbar, land of rumor and embellishment. Word is getting out: An early version of JAVA MAN was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers contest. And IndieReader put VAMPIRE VIC on its 2014 Top 10 list.
The Harris Gray collaboration began in Jason's coffee shop. Allan wrote and eavesdropped as Jason entertained his customers. One day Allan found a little yellow notepad waiting for him, crammed to the margins with Jason's exploits. Allan typed them, touched them up, and called it good; Jason had other ideas. As their tales converged and became inseparable, Harris Gray took shape ... the writer and the storyteller.
Allan and Jason are both married, but many people still consider them a couple. The duo are currently fictionalizing Jason's days in a grunge-era Seattle band.
Victor’s slacking staff mockingly calls him Vampire Vic. Victor’s boss amuses his wife by intimidating Victor on video. His ex makes him stay out late while she entertains boyfriends in the house she insists they continue to share. One night it finally boils over, and Victor bites someone. And then another…and very soon, he’s no longer visiting the blood bank.
Muscle replaces fat, and his comb-forward widow’s peak takes root. Victor basks in newfound attention and respect, at the office and at home. But real vampires get hunted, and as the transformation reaches the tipping point, Victor must decide how much he’s willing to sacrifice for the power of the vampire.
Romania in the year 1586. “Improved” vampires are ascendant and young slayer Trubadur Maistru hunts the Morbius carrier before he can choose the next vampire queen. Too late—Trubadur finds his true love Nadia seduced and bitten.
But this incarnation of Morbius wields an unexpected power, and Nadia and Trubadur slay their way from Transylvania to Bucharest, where their fateful climax sows the seed for a rebirth of the curse.
Modern day Atlantic City. Rumors of a new Morbius greet the world’s most powerful vampires as they convene to execute their takeover. The “V-8” (there are actually 11) brand their would-be slayers as terrorists and launch a lethal “anti-terrorism” campaign.
Now a war-weary world hears a young and beautiful, fanged voice promising peace….
Humans embrace vampires and ancient curses couple with the world’s finest technologies—drones, virtual reality, multi-level marketing organizations. Yet everything hinges on the fated lovers, Eugene and Amberly. In Vampire Vic’s final chapter, true love cannot save everyone; it only promises there will be sacrifice.
Election day 2016 ends very badly. Hillary crushes Trump in the electoral vote. But the popular vote is a dead heat. Riots ensue as reports of fraud pour in—hacking, postal irregularities, entire states unable to post results. The last straw: NFL teams refuse to play, in the name of political justice for all.
Our nation comes unglued. The system is broken and must be fixed now!
A select presidential election commission needs a year. In the meantime the 2 candidates will share the presidency. Six months for each. The nation (and the NFL) are temporarily mollified. Inauguration Day 2017 arrives, and Trump goes first….
Russian invasion, Middle East conflagration, terrorist attacks on the homeland. Economic recession, border intervention, and what do we do about healthcare? One of these deeply flawed candidates will be our next president. How would Hillary and Trump handle foreign and domestic crises? What path would they pave for our future?
Don’t cast that vote until you read Harris Gray’s voter guide, The Imperfect Compromise.
We do worry about vampires popping up in positions of power. They are evolved, difficult to slay, not sexy. A backlash grows; but are we far too late?
Victor Thetherson is nearly cured. The treatment buries the charisma and confidence that only vampirism seems able to resurrect, and snuffs his rekindled love affair with ex-wife Barbara. Victor can’t trust himself as a vampire and doesn’t want to live with himself otherwise.
Eugene Foreman dispenses wisdom on his Sage Slayer site, offs vamps when convenient, and romances Amberly Thetherson. His sensei, the Civil War Soldier, begs Eugene to slay Victor before he realizes his deadly inheritance.
Victor versus Eugene, round two in an ancient war. With Morbius Reborn, our time at the top of the food chain is coming to an end.

Passions simmer below the surface of the tight-lipped community. Fresh from prison, North Dakota’s legendary basketball goddess dangles a ticket to Brian’s campus coffee dreams, and a disgraced scientist’s toxin treatment tantalizes. Two miracles for two maladies—with one cure more deadly than the next.
