Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A man can go missing in New York City. A life can disappear, teeth can sharpen, skin gcan o pale, eyes can reject the sun. People can be human one day, a vampire the next. Set in the Gotham of prostitutes, junkies, and lonely hearts, Bottomfeeder tells the story of Philip, a smart-ass in a dead-end job, whose life takes an unusual turn after he tangles with a vampire. Now, spurred by a bloodlust stronger than his humanity, he haunts the abandoned streets alone, trying to maintain a semblance of normalcy while looking for prey.

Like his entertaining, empathetic comics and graphic novels, Bottomfeeder displays Fingerman's unerring ear for dialogue and spot-on portrayal of New York's urban subculture — drawn here in words rather than images — that have won him legions of fans.

Review:

"Fingerman writes in a punchy, up-to-the-minute urban vernacular that, while it brims with abusive humor, squelches romanticism, provokes other-than-sexual interpretations of vampirism, and helps propel Bottomfeeder to the front ranks of its genre." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Fingerman's usual style is a witty combo of old-school underground-comics grunginess and new-school precision; his dialogue is worthy of the stage." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"When the vampire novel is in the care of a writer as witty and inventive and imaginative as B. H. Fingerman, be sure it can still rise up and bite us. A compellingly seedy revival of the undead, a story told with real pace and style. B. H. Fingerman has a sharp eye for the banality of horror and the horror of the banal." Ramsey Campbell, author of Secret Story

Review:

"As usual, Fingerman catches New York with its pants down, and drags us along for a heady ride with lots of laugh and some moments of genuine pathos." David Wellington, author of Monster Island

Review:

"Mr. Fingerman is a deeply talented, creative, and disturbed man." Max Brooks, author of World War Z

Review:

"This is a novel for those who enjoy seeing myths turned on their heads, as well as anyone who notices the oddities that populate the dark edges of our world....I enjoyed the ride." The Willamette Week (Portland, OR)

Jason Berry, July 21, 2008 (view all comments by Jason Berry)
This novel seemed to drag somewhat for me – it definitely was not one of those books that are hard to put down.
If you’re in the mood to read a vampire book, from the vampire’s perspective, I would skip this one and read I, Vampire, by Robert Shuster, instead.
