Description

Heaven, Purgatory and Hell, the three realms of the afterlife. Agents from each side try to manipulate Man, making it do things it wouldn't normally do, to influence its final destination. All to get more souls and gain an advantage in the Eternal War.
I can't accept it. It isn't fair for the place of eternal rest (or torment) of a person to be determined by what a third party led it to do. And I fight to prevent it.

Here, I tell the stories of some of my battles in the constant war to impose divine justice in this world, where the deities themselves are corrupt.

About the author

Joel Puga nasceu na cidade portuguesa de Viana do Castelo em 1983. Entrou em contacto muito cedo com a fantasia e a ficção científica, principalmente graças a séries e filmes dobrados transmitidos por canais espanhóis. Assim que aprendeu a ler, enveredou pela literatura de género, começando a aventura com os livros de Júlio Verne. Foi nesta altura que produziu as suas primeiras histórias, geralmente passadas nos universos de outros autores, cuja leitura estava reservada a familiares e amigos.Em 2001, mudou-se para Braga para prosseguir os estudos, altura em que decidiu que a sua escrita devia ser mais do que um hobby privado. Isso valeu-lhe a publicação em várias antologias e fanzines portuguesas abordando diversos sub-géneros da ficção especulativa.Vive, hoje, em Braga, onde divide o seu tempo entre o emprego como engenheiro informático, a escrita e a leitura.Joel Puga was born in the Portuguese city of Viana do Castelo in 1983.

Vampires

It's two in the morning of a dark and rainy night. With quick steps, I approach an old abandoned house in the centre of Braga. In spite of the protection of my trench coat and leather gloves I'm drenched, and I wish I was within the shelter of a roof and four walls. Still, I can't help but notice the posters that cover the old ruin. Adverts for political parties, placed here at the time of the last elections. Elections; a mechanism created to give mere humans the illusion that they can control their own destiny. What they don't realize is that the leaders of the various parties control them first, through this political marketing, the speeches in which they talk a lot but say little, the appearances in public, the kissing babies campaigns, as I like to call them, and, sometimes, even the giving of hams to the voters. And the people, surrounded by all this paraphernalia, forget what really matters, the work done by the candidates, their curriculum, their merits and demerits, and vote solely based on sympathies. This is why I never vote. I do not believe in the current state of democracy, in the dictatorship of the majority, in which the majority is brain washed.

Seconds later I cross the door of the decaying building, and I find myself within a huge room lit by dozens of candles. Around me, naked men and women give themselves to the pleasures of the flesh, but their alabaster skin and long, sharp canines reveal that they are not human. Vampires. Creatures that once were human but that, after learning the truth about Heaven and Hell, came, like me, to the conclusion that neither of the two is a desirable destination and chose to use ancient rituals to indefinitely prolong their lives. Once, I considered becoming one of them, but promptly found out that they pay a high price for immortality, much too high for me. The curse, because I can't see the ritual as anything else, makes them vulnerable to sunlight, so they have to spend all day hidden in the dark corners of the world, and can only go out during the night. In addition, they have to regularly drink human blood or end up weakened or even losing eternal life. When found, they are hunted down and killed. Marginalized and persecuted, many
