New eBook Aims to Explain the Genetic Origin of the First Vampire

Free ebook novella, "Cult of the Iron Cobra," explains the genetic origin of the first vampire.

Author Ron Stillman makes a case for how a vampire could actually mutate from a human.

Author Ron Stillman has published "Cult of the Iron Cobra," a book that explains in genetic detail how a vampire could be "born." He postulates that Countess ElizaBeth Bathory of Hungary, who lived in the 15th and 16th centuries, could have been the first vampire in history.

The theory is that the "Blood Countess" who tortured and murdered over 600 young women and girls, had a genetic disorder that caused her blood cells to divide according to the formula for the summation of the Fibonacci Sequence. This being a slower cell division than the normal geometric cell division of humans, caused a shortage of blood cells. Hence, the need for human blood, which the Countess Bathory craved.

The book is available for free at the ebook publishing web site, using the "Adult Content" option.
