Publisher's Synopsis

Zeynel, a carpet merchant turned vampire, has accepted his fate and now searches for the stories of his past. With his ties to Istanbul threadbare after the passing of his wife, Ayse, he travels across the West in search of a new home. On the invitation of a young friend, Alfred Grimsley, Zeynel moves to a quiet English town where he is confronted by a fad for all things Turkish - but not as he knows it.

Zeynel's new life is thrown off balance when Mora Strigoi, the vampire responsible for Zeynel's death, appears at his door begging for forgiveness. With Mora's arrival and Alfred on the trail of a mysterious serial killer, Zeynel must decide whether he can make peace with the past before everything he has built begins to unravel.

The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya, Vol II is the second and final instalment of the Eisner-nominated graphic novel. A modern Gothic story that takes apart the 'vampire as other' trope, it tells of the healing balm of compassion and the redemptive power of forgiveness.

About the Publisher



Unbound was founded by three writers: Dan Kieran, Justin Pollard & John Mitchinson. We think people who love books ? primarily readers and writers ? deserve a say in what does or doesn't get published. You may not be aware of it, but even best selling authors are beginning to have very restrictive parameters imposed on the kinds of books they get to write. Put simply, there are lots of potentially great books we're not getting the opportunity to read.
