Glen lives in Illinois with his wife. He is, and has always been, an avid story teller. From a young age Glen was fascinated with creating complex alternate universes. His first published writing is the Infinity series.
When starting to write the Infinity series, I decided to look for a creature in mythology and lore that could stand toe to toe while fighting a Vampire. While searching I came across the Anthropophagi. This was definitely one of the charter types that I most enjoyed molding into my own. Below is a synopsis of the information that I found prior to writing.
Anthropophagi: The name comes from the Greek word anthropophagos, which means “man-eating.” According to legend, Greek fisherman came across an island and found cannibals for the first time. They were disgusted by what they saw. They described them as hideous creatures lacking heads; they had eyes on their shoulders and mouths in their chests. In addition to consuming human flesh, they used bones for tools and skulls as drinking vessels.
I went on to write them as muscular creatures with shoulders so large it appeared that their heads were in their chests. With the strength of 10 men, they can rip the limbs from Vampires with ease. Everything consumed by the creatures gives them more strength. I felt that this gave them a greater chance to fight against Vampires.

“No, believe me, it is not dead.” I replied.
The three warriors ran to grab other weapons, placed on the ground. The Anthropophagi burst out from below the flames. It jumped from the fire and pulled the sword out from its back. Taft ran toward it, he raised a spiked ball, attached to a wooden club, up and drove it down into the creature’s massive shoulder. The Anthropophagi grabbed Taft and threw him on top of the boxes on fire. As he fell, fire collapsed onto Taft. Kang and Brock ran toward the gate on the far wall. The Anthropophagi dropped and rolled around until the flames covering its body were extinguished. Raising back up it looked around. The creature ran toward Kang and Brock, it stopped as it reached Solomon’s body. The crowd yelled in anger as the Anthropophagi began to devour the headless body.
