|Plot Summary of Area 51: Nosferatu|
Dell, July 2003, 6.99, 310 pp.
Millennia ago, aliens arrived on Earth and using the disguise of gods they ruled Atlantis until a civil war broke out and destroyed the island completely. Some of the Airlia retreated to Egypt and again wore the guise of gods and mated with six women who bore children that were half alien and half human. Unlike the immortal Airlians, the halflings needed blood to stay alive and thus was born the legend of vampires.
The Airlians treated the halflings cruelly, keeping them in metal containers, only allowing them to wake up when they wanted to drink their blood. Eventually the halflings rebelled and three of the six halflings survived although Vampyr's twin sister was murdered. He swore vengeance on the Airlian and humanity, but Nosferatu only cared about finding a way to make him and his love immortal so that they don't need blood.
Vampires, the Holy Grail, Excalibur and many other objects and events from myth and legend are explained in AREA 51: NOSFERATU. A very highly evolved race of aliens used these avatars to rule mankind. The minatour on ancient Crete and then the monarchs such as King Minos, Ghenghis Khan, Vlad Tepes and Ivan the Terrible, rulers whose power was absolute and used for evil purposes, were all the doings of one vengeful fledging.

|"At the begining of human history, a race of aliens called Airlia ruled Egypt as gods. They mated with humans and produced the Undead. The Undead fed on human blood, while the "gods" used them to get their blood. And the Undead revolted. Only 3 survived, and as senturies passed they were searching for a way to get pure Airlia blood for themselves and become immortal. "
