Synopses & Reviews
Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching neck, superhuman strength, and a distinctly Nosferatuan thirst, she realizes the decision has been made for her.
Making the transition from the nine-to-five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some doing, however, and that's where C. Thomas Flood fits in. A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy (to his friends) is biding his time night-clerking and frozen-turkey bowling in a San Francisco Safeway. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door...and proceeds to rock Tommy's life and afterlife in ways he never imagined possible.
"Moore's seemingly off-the-cuff narrative and plotting fail to deliver on an imaginative beginning. Despite offering some amusing moments, the author gives little depth to his motley cast of characters and wavers awkwardly between fable and satire." Publishers Weekly
"Anne Rice this isn't. Filled with oddball characters, clever dialog, and hilarious situations that are Moore's trademarks, this delightful tale deserves a spot on all popular fiction shelves. Highly recommended." Library Journal
With a psychedelic inventiveness that invites comparisons with Kurt Vonnegut
and Tom Robbins
, the author of Coyote Blue
spins a tale of vampires on the loose in San Francisco a love story readers can really sink their teeth into.
