The Comte de Saint Germain is living in relative peace and prosperity in the village of Orgon in fourteenth century France. He has won a grudging acceptance from the local populace, who are uneasy with his strange and foreign ways but appreciative of his generosity.

A Feast in Exile

A Feast in Exile draws readers back to the time when the Mongol hordes of Timur known in the West as Tamerlane swept across fourteenth century India and Asia. Delhi’s civilized veneer crumbles along with its walls. Foreigners, which the vampire Saint Germain here called Sanat Ji Mani surely is, lose their positions, homes, wealth, and sometimes their lives, if they cannot escape the falling city. Before he can flee Delhi, Sanat Ji Mani must ensure the safety of Avasa Dani, his beautiful ward, who has been abandoned by her husband. Sanat Ji Mani’s love has awakened Avasa Dani’s every sense; even she will become a vampire upon her death, but she finds no terror in this fate. Avasa Dani and Rojire, Sanat Ji Mani’s servant, successfully make their way out of Delhi, but Sanat Ji Mani himself is trapped. His life is bought by his skills with medicine, but, at Timur’s command, he must travel by day, and exposed to the sun with the conqueror’s army. Crippled and unable to escape, he knows that his vampire nature will soon be revealed, and then…
Avasa Dani, with a worried Rojire at her side, considers her options as a woman without a visible male protector in a land and time ruled by men. While one of Sanat Ji Mani’s allies searches desperately for the missing vampire, Saint Germain and a young acrobat, with whom he has escaped from Timur’s forces, make their slow and painful way to freedom. The journey changes them both forever.

Night Blooming

At the forced invitation of 8th century Germanic king Karl lo Magne Charlemagne, Hiermon Ragoczy de Santus Germainius, a dark and strange man rumored to have traveled to many far places, makes the dangerous journey to France. He is called to validate the authenticity of the king’s newly purchased maps, but unbeknownst to Karl lo Magne, Ragoczy’s knowledge stems from centuries of being chased from these countries, rather than traveling through them. Despite his longing for peace, he yields to Karl lo Magne. What he does not expect, though, is to meet the albino woman, Gynethe Mehaut, who shares his curse of solitude. Showing signs of stigmata, she seeks peace from the church. But when she is taken to Rome, accusations of witchcraft fly, and she is left with a difficult choice one that even Ragoczy cannot deny.

Midnight Harvest

and love. To escape the horrors of the Spanish Civil War, Saint Germain travels to San Francisco, where he reunites with Rowena Saxon, a past lover whose beauty and wisdom have matured with time. There he offers Rowena a choice: a natural death or immortality as a vampire. But unknown to the noble exile, an assassin has followed him from Spain, torturing his friends and his associates at every step. The next target will be Rowena, unless the vampire recognizes the peril that both he and his lover face. Will his ignorance achieve what time itself cannot the death of Saint Germain?

Dark of the Sun

It is the 6th century of the common era. The vampire Saint Germain, known in this time as Sangi Ragozh, is peacefully doing business in Asia when, unknown to him or anyone else in most of the world Krakatoa explodes in a massive volcanic eruption. The island is nearly completely destroyed; tidal waves swamp harbors hundreds of miles away, ravaging trade ships and their cargoes; tons of ash and dirt are flung into the air. In the months to come, the world grows colder and darker as the massive cloud of dust and ash spreads across the globe, blocking sunlight. Sea trade is ravaged. Crops fail. Livestock, and then people, begin to starve. Disease spreads. Panic rises. What has caused the sun to go dark? With his scientific bent, Sangi Ragozh suspects a natural cause, but most people assume a supernatural explanation and begin to seek supernatural remedies. As always in times of trouble, foreigners and the vampire is always a foreigner, wherever he travels become targets. Fleeing toward the West, where he hopes to find safety and sanity, the vampire travels with a nomadic tribe led by Dukkai, a female shaman who soon becomes Sangi Ragozh’s lover and main source of sustenance. But Sangi Ragozh’s problems are far from over. His vampire nature is discovered by an enemy; he is separated from Dukkai and begins to starve; he has lost everything, including his last sack of his native soil. With death no longer a distant possibility, Sangi Ragozh desperately tries to reach sanctuary in the one place he truly belongs his homeland, the country he first left centuries earlier. A land we now call Transylvania.

States of Grace

Franzicco Ragoczy di Santo Germano is a successful merchant in Venice. His lavish lifestyle and rumored cache of magnificent jewels have attracted the wrong sort of attention, and without Santo Germano’s noble and papal connections, he might be imprisoned, his property confiscated. Also under surveillance is the vampire s mistress, the lovely and talented musician Pier Ariana Salier.
Elsewhere, Ragoczy s publishing business is being investigated by the Inquisition. Erneste van Amsteljaxter, a writer whose intelligence Ragoczy finds attractive, is tarred with the brush of heresy. Ragoczy is trying to help her, when he learns that Pier Ariana has disappeared.
Back in Venice Santo Germano finds that his fortune has been embezzled, and that he is accused of kidnapping, and possibly murdering, a young man who had been spying on the vampire and his mistress. Another spy has discovered Santo Germano s true nature and intends to kill him before he can feast on all of Venice!

Roman Dusk

Rome is crumbling. The child emperor, Heliogabalus, diverts the Roman populace with parties, circuses, and celebrations, while his mother and grandmother jockey for power behind the scenes. The government is riddled with scandal and no business is conducted without bribes which grow ever larger. Religions joust for prominence, with factions of Christians seeking to overthrow the ancient Roman pantheon. Courtesans, once honored for their skills and protected by special guards, have become targets of opprobrium. The vampire Ragoczy Germanius Sanct Franciscus, already subject to extra taxes and regulations because he is a foreigner, falls under the maleficent eye of Telemachus Batsho, a minor functionary who dreams of power and wealth. When Franciscus thwarts his attempts to extort ever increasing sums from a young Roman of good birth, Batsho swears revenge. Franciscus finds his activities closely monitored and is accused of treason and conspiracy. His friends, threatened with similar scrutiny, abandon him to Batsho’s mercies or urge him to leave the Eternal City. But Franciscus has many ties to Rome. He has taken under his protection a beautiful courtesan who was brutally beaten by the very men who should have been protecting her. She has been the vampire s sustenance for many months. Franciscus is also held in the city by the plight of the family Laelius. The Domina s health is failing despite the vampire s great medical skills; her son has converted to Christianity and rails against his mother s beliefs; her daughter Ignatia, who has sacrified her own life to care for her mother, realizes that when her mother dies, her fate will rest in the hands of her increasingly fanatical brother. Determined to claim pleasure for herself, Ignatia invites Franciscus s attentions, inflaming him with the power of her untapped sexuality. Unfortunately, they are not unobserved, and their simple yet powerful act of love sparks a conflagration that destroys Ignatia s family and nearly brings about the vampire s True Death.

Saint-Germain Memoirs

Focusing on Saint Germain one of the genre’s most memorable vampires this collection follows the dark immortal from ancient Greece to the present as tales of his timeless life are recounted. Also included is a brief essay by the author about her world renowned vampire, with an Introduction by Sharon A. Russell.

Borne in Blood

The year is 1817. In Switzerland, the Count Saint Germain leads a comfortable life with his paramour Hero whose husband died fighting Napoleon. Saint Germain’s loving kindness cannot keep Hero from missing her children who are being raised by their hard hearted grandfather. The Count has become intrigued by the work of an Austrian noble investigating the properties of blood, a subject always of key interest to a vampire. But when the noble’s beautiful ward fixates sexually on the Count, the vampire fears for himself and his gentle lover. With Borne in Blood, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s saga of Count Saint Germain, reaches a milestone the twentieth volume of the vampire’s adventures. The Saint Germain cycle is one of our age’s most compelling bodies of work of dark fantasy and horror, and the longest running series of vampire novels. Historically accurate, these deeply emotional novels have a devoted readership. Recognizing her impact on the genre, the International Horror Guild named Chelsea Quinn Yarbro a Living Legend at the World Fantasy Convention in 2006.

A Dangerous Climate

The vampire Count Saint Germain, disguised as a missing Hungarian nobleman, is on a spy mission in the heart of Czarist Russia. Almost by the power of his will alone, it seems, Peter the Great is wrestling the city that will one day be St. Petersburg out of swampland. Representatives of the heads of all European states are living in tiny, frigid, wooden homes as they jockey for power and influence over the Czar. When a man shows up claiming to be the Count Saint Germain, the vampire must figure out how to protect his title and wealth without revealing either his true identity or his True Nature.

Burning Shadows

Two decades strong, the Saint Germain cycle is one of the most compelling works of dark fantasy and horror of our age. Historically accurate, these deeply emotional novels have a devoted readership. In Burning Shadows, Yarbro looks at the legendary Huns from the perspective of the people who faced the brunt of their attacks. The vampire Saint Germain seeks sanctuary at an isolated monastery, unwilling to abandon the hundreds of terrified villagers he has led in flight from the Huns. A few Roman soldiers and some village Watchmen are the monastery’s defense force and they are undermined by the religious fervor of some of the monks, who argue that since everyone s fate is in God s hands, it is foolish to defend themselves. In the hothouse atmosphere of the high walled monastery, Saint Germain must take special care when slaking his vampire thirst, for discovery of his True Nature will result in his True Death.

An Embarrassment of Riches

More than two decades strong, the Saint Germain cycle is one of the most compelling works of dark fantasy and horror of our age. Historically accurate, often involving key events or figures from throughout world history, these deeply emotional novels have a devoted readership. Each novel is written as a stand alone and they are not chronologically consecutive, so readers may enter the saga with any book and move backward or forward in time as they choose, from Pharaonic Egypt to Paris in the 1700s, from the fall of the Roman Empire to World War II Europe. In An Embarrassment of Riches, the vampire Count finds himself a virtual prisoner in the Court of Kunigunde in Bohemia in the 1200s. Rakoczy Ferncsi, as Saint Germain is known, pas*ses his days making jewels to delight Queen Kunigunde and trying not to become involved in the Court’s intrigues. In this, the vampire fails. Handsome, apparently wealthy, and obviously unmarried, he soon finds himself being sexually blackmailed by Rozsa, an ambitious lady in waiting. If he does not satisfy her, she will denounce him to the priests and he’ll be burned at the stake, resulting in his True Death. Despite his care, the vampire makes more than one enemy at the Bohemian Court, and by the end of An Embarrassment of Riches, the Count can see only one road to freedom…
through death.

Messages from Michael

Twenty five years ago, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro and her friends began sharing messages from a group entity that called themselves ‘Michael.’ Michael’s words were offered without alteration or interpretation for seekers, students, and skeptics alike. Pragmatic, insightful, and often witty, Michael insisted their work was simply to help questioners become more aware and better able to make their own decisions in life. Through this initial volume, Messages from Michael, and three more that followed, Michael spoke to thousands who found new understandings of themselves. Unfortunately imitators and frauds have since exploited the Michael teachings but even they admit that Messages from Michael was the first source of the teachings. Here, expanded for the twenty first century, is the long awaited new edition of this ground breaking book.

More Messages from Michael

When Messages from Michael was first published more than thirty years ago, there was a demand for more of the information. A second book, More Messages from Michael was published soon after. Out of print for more than a decade, More Messages from Michael joins the Caelum Press twenty fifth anniversary edition of Messages from Michael in this updated twenty fifth anniversary edition from Caelum Press. In More Messages from Michael, Mid Causal entity Michael delves more deeply into life choices, reincarnation, the working of the soul’s evolution, and the nature of living. Michael answers many questions ranging from the most mundane to the highly esoteric. Michael’s teaching, which remains consistent to this day, is both practical and unearthly, delivered with dry wit and idiosyncratic English, filled with insights, information, and a unique perspective that has kept people coming back for more for over three decades. Just keep in mind Michael’s admonitions, Belief is not required, All is chosen, and All choices are equally valid, and you may find that Michael’s teaching has a message for you.

Michael for the Millennium

In this follow up to Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Messages from Michael, the spiritual essence known as ‘Michael’ returns with startling revelations about our world and what the next millennium holds for the people of the Earth.

Caught up in the intrigue against her will, Olivia seeks and wins the protection of a young guardsman named d’Artagnan a man destined to become one of the greatest heroes of all time.

Out of the House of Life

More than a third of Saint Germain’s long, long life was spent in the shadow of the Pyramids, in service to the temples of Egypt but the tale of those years has never been told before. In Out of the House of Life, readers of Yarbro’s series can at last discover how a bloodthirsty demon, captured and enslaved by the high priests of the temple of Imhotep, was transformed into priest and physician and then, finally, into an immortal being of great power and greater wisdom.

In the Face of Death

This erotic and historical vampire novel is set in America in the years before and during the Civil War and features Madelaine de Montalia, sometime lover of Count St. Germain; General William Tecumseh Sherman; and, in a supporting role, St. Germain himself. Madelaine lives with and studies the native tribes of America, trying to document their culture and knowledge before they are changed unalterably by contact with the settlers new to North America, only to find herself in the middle of some of the most horrifying events of the war.

Crown of Empire (With: David Drake)

The Pact of Mankind is a dinosaur lumbering toward oblivion: hedged about by alien enemies, it is rotten with decadence and corruption. The Pact is run by competing oligarchies of criminal corporations, but it is ruled by a single man the High Secretary of the Pact. But if he should die, it would be feeding time in the piranha tank.

Embassy Row

Against the Brotherhood Forge, 1997 launched this series authorized by Dame Jean Conan Doyle and staring Sherlock Holmes’s older brother, Mycroft.

The night the papers are to be signed and sealed, a British diplomat whose opposition to the negotiations is no secret is found dead with a Japanese dagger in his back. Mycroft and Guthrie must solve his murder, expose the agitators behind it, and see to the finalization of the agreement without finding themselves on the wrong end of the knife.
