Share Article

Mark Zuckerberg, Vampire Slayer, a novel by Luke Ray, is available now on Amazon. Promotional copies are available from April 19-22.

What if Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook, not to bring people together, but rather to weave a social shield that made it harder for vampires to pick off the lonely, un-friended individuals at Harvard? Mark Zuckerberg, Vampire Slayer is a playful and savvy satire on high-tech start-ups and their pursuit of money and power. Ray's narrative is fast paced, highly addictive, and just plain fun.

When a bombshell vampire starts putting the moves on Mark Zuckerberg’s ex girlfriend, and he is accused of a campus hack, Mark fights back using cyber detective work and good old fashioned grit. It all starts on a dark and stormy night. Mark gets a strange call from his ex, Sam. She’s in trouble, but she won’t say why. On his way to help, Mark is accosted by giant brothers, the evil—maybe even supernatural—Winkelvoss twins, who kick Mark around for fun. Mark is saved by a mysterious coed, Priscilla, who scares the twins off. Meanwhile, Sam disappears and her trail leads to a powerful member of Harvard’s board of trustees—a dangerous woman named Mona who Mark soon learns has a set of pointed teeth that she likes to do nefarious things with. Vampires!? Mark is plunged into a new reality. Part noir, part horror, this fun and engaging book delivers a playful take on how Zuckerberg got his start in the tech world.

Published in three parts and now brought together as a complete novel, you can download this work for free from April 19-21 at

About the author:
Writer and serial entrepreneur Luke Ray was called “the guy who walked away from it all” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune after pulling the plug on a startup in climactic fashion: live blogging about it on TechCrunch while getting drunk at a neighborhood cafe. He went on to work for several years at a startup incubator. His first-hand experience in the guts of startups causes him to view glamorous founders’ stories with a critical and amused eye. In this debut work of fiction, Mark Zuckerberg, Vampire Slayer, he uses humor and satire to poke fun at the origin story behind one of America’s great startups, Facebook.
