Fun Fact: The Blood Diamonds Of Nubia


In the short story “Death By Vampire“, Terran secret agent Lirian Nimah trades ten blood diamonds to an enemy agent for the lives of a hundred Terran hostages. Each one valued at a hundred thousand credits, each one for ten Terran hostages.

Of special note about the value of these particular blood diamonds, they couldn’t be forged or copied, not even by a transmatter replication device – something about the atomic structure interfered with the process. This made them even more valuable.

Mined on the planet Nubia, they weren’t called ‘blood diamonds’ because anyone died mining them… they had that name because they were the color of the blood of several species – green blood – like the Jim-waians… which, Lirian Nimah – secret agent and even more secret vampire – found less palatable than the red blood of Terrans!
